Memories of Cecil

04.06.15 | Sonny Delfyette

Former Family Life Program Director and on-air talent Cecil Van Houten has gone home to be with our Lord on March 31, 2015. He fought a courageous battle over the last 6 years. Throughout this time and during his entire life Cecil used his many talents to minister to those near and far. Just like his journal entries Cecil brought a truly unique perspective to life. We were all privileged to be a part of his life and share in his experiences and thoughts. Cecil was truly one of a kind and will be dearly missed. He is home now, in a much better place, free from physical pain and rejoicing this Easter season. While we will selfishly miss him here, he had a higher calling. The Lord wanted him to come home. Cecil's spirit will live on with the countless people he touched over his life. He will be remembered as a true believer, a tremendous man, a loving husband, father, and grandfather. In this podcast are only a few of many memories of Cecil. May he rest in everlasting peace.
