Dee, John and I are profoundly saddened and stunned that we have lost Cicero. I know you well know that he was loved by SO MANY people. Both he and you were such a joy to be with and you'll were such great dancers. I always complimented him on his ability to do the twist and go all the way down to the floor and back up again. His energy, love of life and kindness to others will always be remembered in my heart and soul. I know he is worthy to be a shining angel in heaven because he was an angel in life to me. May God give us all the strength to get through this tragedy in our lives. Much love.
Jerry and I have lost a friend and neighbor. He was a fun person to know and we will miss him dearly!
