    Mark, my Mom Marilyn and I want to express our deepest sympathies. Ceci was such an inspiration to us all. She was such a fighter. Mark knew her when she was very young. He said she was cute and very sweet. Mom and I knew her from music of course and AGO meetings. No matter what she was going through, she always seemed cheerful. We talked for a long time over the summer and it was always so good to catch up. You were her treasure Betsy and I know your heart will be filled with all the memories that will sustain you and bring joy.
    Love, Mark and Donna Groom and Marilyn Guyker
