    I am surprised and saddened to hear of Cecilia's passing! I had randomly done a GOOGLE search on her name and the notice of her passing appeared! Only recently had I resurrected communications with her as a fellow Board member of PATA (Pennsylvania Accordion Teachers Assoc.) here from my our new domicile in Denver. We talked about 5 times over the last year had a great time reminiscing; she seemed FINE - and full of life - to me! I have a (final) picture of the PATA Board taken at the LAST meeting of PATA including Cecilia, who was our Treasurer; I believe there are only TWO of us left! I will gladly share it with anyone who might be interested in it. It was a pleasure knowing you Cecilia, RIP! Danny Ruth heathkit1@gmail.com P.S. She frequently mentioned Danny Desiderio to me.
