Cecilia enjoyed life to the fullest. Family gathering was everything to her. It was that moment she was able to share love with everyone at the same time. Cecilia’s passion for faith, family and sports was felt in any interaction we all shared with her. One of her most cherished stories was sitting in left field during game 7 of the World Series. Witnessing her beloved Diamondbacks become World Champions. Her unforgettable laughter as she described her stories or hearing a good joke is something we all will miss. We will love and remember you always, Cecilia.
