    “Hey Cuzz”
    Those were the first words everytime that I saw him especially when that truck was passing the house. He would always make time to stop and chat. Years ago I was trying to figure out how to get this 500pound awkward shapped Hammond B2 organ up the steps and into the house….Cecil happened to drive by and he jumped out of that truck and somehow we got it up and in. He was always helping others.
    Deepest sympathy to Denise, Carmen, Celeste, Bonnie and the rest of the family.
    Rest Easy “Cuzz”
