Three weeks ago I lost my dear friend and mentor Cecilia Rose to cancer. The world isn’t the same without Cecilia but it is a better place because she was here. As a person of deep faith, I have no doubt that she was ready for her new life.
Gifts that Last
I’m remembering many, many generous gifts of Cecilia’s time, her wisdom, her wit and her joy. She helped me expand my thinking and feeling through Systems Dynamics work, her insightful questions and her ability to listen with empathy. Cecilia was always in my corner and willing to lovingly challenge me to see other perspectives.
Follow Their Example
Cecilia fought until the end to beat cancer with the same determination she applied to everything in her life. As I considered how best to honor her, I decided that trying to follow her example would be most meaningful. I will continue to practice what Cecilia taught me and share her gifts with others.
