He was born into a loving and determined family without much money- they traveled across the United States from the start of World War I, eventually finding their place on a rural farm in Red River Parish, Louisiana, during World War II. In this memoir, he chronicles the ups and downs of his almost ninety-five years.Cecil loved to work hard to help his family out. He had vision and a positive attitude, but most of all he carried a dream in his heart, put there by God that would guide his future steps. From the tender stories of how he met each of his late wives, first Nola and later Agnes, to the hard work and perseverance it took to keep his farm, the tales he shares describe a life well-lived. He has been an example to his many friends as well as his family, and his life has been richly blessed by the Lord.Cecil’s wish and legacy is for his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren to learn from both his struggles and his good times- he wants them to know how to handle either situation in a manner pleasing to God.Engaging and heartfelt, this memoir recalls Cecil’s past, tracing it through highs and lows and leading him to where he is today.
