    He left us a treasure in the book he wrote. Fortunately he got to see himself inducted in the Hall of Fame. He will be missed.

    Re: Sam Cecil has passed away

    I was lucky enough to hear his acceptance speech into the hall of fame, it truly was touching. He made a joke about how it was much better than receiving a posthumous award. He then noted that he had no experience receiving posthumous awards. I hope this comes off with all respect intended. He without a doubt did alot for the industry.

    In Memory Of
    Samuel Kennett Cecil
    Oct 26,1918-Apr 7,2005

    A prayer by Saint Francis :

    Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
    Where there is hatred . . . let me sow love
    Where there is injury . . . pardon
    Where there is doubt . . . faith
    Where there is despair . . .hope
    Where there is darkness . . . light
    Where there is sadness . . .joy
    Divine Master,
    grant that i may not so much seek
    To be consoled . . .as to console
    To be understood . . .as to understand,
    To be loved . . . as to love
    For it is in giving . . .that we receive,
    It is in pardoning, that we are pardoned,
    It is in dying . . .that we are born to eternal life
