    To Glenda, Trevor, Ronald and families.

    Thoughts and sympathies are with you.
    Many fond memories of Uncle Cec particularly in my younger days when he and dad worked together cutting house blocks for fire wood and rebuilt their mother’s house.
    Both were always close.
    Fond memories.
    A long life well lived.

    Lots of lovely memories of Cec. Happy times sitting with him in the back yard eating the peas he’d grown and listening to his stories!
    I have to grow the peas now and I’m sure he will let me know if I’m not doing the right thing!😊
