My sympathy to all of Cil’s family members. I was saddened to hear of her death but at the same time many happy thoughts of her passed through my mind…….the trips to Boston with the office girls, the trips she came on to Europe, or just going out to eat. We shared many laughs and good times and throughout all of these, Cil would talk about her children and then the grand children as they came along. You were always at the center of her life. May the special times shared with her help you through this loss.
Jackie Lajoie
