    Am truly sorry for your loss. My father truly depended on Cedie for all that he did to help make the Hermon Cemetery a beautiful place. I loved going to the cemetery to see my dad and Cedie. Strange place to have wonderful memories, but they are wonderful memories. Will miss driving by the house and seeing Cedie out riding the lawn mower, but will always think of him when i drive by. Thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Cedie was a great man. Many a time I would spend time setting at his table and visit for hours. He was never to busy to help you out, would always get in his car and come after you if he see you walking, and take you where you were going. Stop by and help you do something, or lend you anything he owned. I used to grab ice cream sandwiches or something at the store when he was out mowing, and stop by his house and visit in the shade of the big trees while he took a break. Always let us ride our snowmobiles. I will miss him greatly.
