    Cephas and I went to high school together and he was loved by all that knew him. He never met a stranger. I had the pleasure of meeting his beautiful wife Sylvia at one of our Class reunions and she was very kind and so easy to get to know. Sylvia and I became friends from that very first meeting and have kept in touch on the phone since then. It’s hard to know what to say at this sad time because your loss is so great and (Joe) will be missed in so many ways. Even though no words can truly comfort you, perhaps they can, in some small way, express the depth of care and concern that is felt for you now. Cherish the 51 years of memories that you both had together as they will bring you so much comfort. You know that I am always here for you and that I love you.
    I will always remember (Joe) as that kind and sweet person and I am so glad that God brought him in to my life. God Bless you and your family.
