Cessy was a Christian involved as a Prayer Warrior at Woodlands Church in Texas at the beginning of their opening until 2014, before we moved to Florida from Texas. She met several good friends there such as Robin and Larry Muller, Roe and Bob Taylor, Heidi and Bob Marlow, Carol and Ed Chance, Jackson, Dawn and Rhonda and other Church Family Members.

Cessy was a kind and giving person, she would spend her money on her children and grandchildren before she would spend it on herself. She was my better half for 55 years of marriage and kept me in line. Cessy loved to Travel; she went to Hawaii, Germany, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Mexico. She loved the beach, especially Laguna Beach in California. She also loved the Jetty in Fort Pierce and her favorite restaurants in Palm Beach CA and Shuckers.
