Today’s blog post is in memory of my husband, Cecil Morris. To simply say that I miss him would be a gross understatement. His presence was certainly a light in our family. He was truly loved by all who knew him. I can still hear that infectious laugh that drew you into his joy. Anyone who ever heard CEMO laugh would burst into laughter along with him.
As the boys and I move forward, we keep his memory and the lessons he left with us close to our hearts. We are better because of the time God allowed us to have with him. I’ve linked a video of his life below.
This past weekend, our dear friends hosted an event called, CEMO Jazz! It was jazz concert in honor and memory of Cecil, held at the African American Firefighter Museum. He loved jazz and funk music, so they hired a couple of bands and we gathered to enjoy the music, eat, laugh, and dance. Yes, I danced and remembered the times we shared the dance floor together.
CEMO Jazz was a beautiful reminder of how much my husband was loved and how God continues to love me and the boys through the people He has placed in our lives. I’ve included a few of the pictures from the event (courtesy of our Fire Brother, Darnell Wade).
I will close today by saying THANK YOU! You’ve been an amazing support to our family over this past year. I feel abundantly blessed.
Thanks for stopping by!
