    We were so sorry to hear of your loss, Carl and Gloria. We both have many good memories of Cecil from our Canton days, starting when Char worked for Cecil at Clarks Gas, and their many trips over to Davis Bros in East Peoria. He was a great guy, and we hope your heavy hearts will soon lighten with all of your loving memories of him.
