My mother was aunt Cecile’s niece, Maxine Sinclair Wise. We visited aunt Cecile when she lived in her apartment in Greenville along with uncle Lyle. Mom used to talk about their courtship as mom was old enough to remember. Aunt Cecile was such a sweetheart. The last time I saw her was at my mother’s visitation, but I have thought of her fondly over the years. God bless you all and may you all find comfort in your memories.

Sorry I didn’t know – I was in the hospital last week. I will miss here sweet little face. I saw her just before I left on vacation a few weeks ago. I know she is happy to see all her family!!!!!!
