  19. We were so sad to hear of Aunt Cel’s passing. She always had a positive attitude even dealing with all the health issues she endured. She was quite a lady and poured love out to all those who knew her! Hope all the happy memories you hold in your heart will bring some peace to all of you at this difficult time! Uncle Charlie, Chuck, Mike and Ann, you have our sympathy, and are in our thoughts and prayers. May God bless you all!

  20. We all lost “a great one” with Cecelia. It was very evident by the family that Chuck and Cecelia raised. We were very happy to have you both, and your children, as friends and neighbors for 25 years on Richard Dr. and also for 25+ years after we moved. She was a lovely lady and she will be greatly missed.

  21. Anyone who takes the time to read the tributes posted by the neighborhood friends on Richard Drive quickly realizes what a special woman is being honored. Cel truly lived out the biblical admonition of Michah 6-8: “What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness and to walk humbly with the your God?”
    May we all complete our journey back to God as successful as Cel.
    With love,
    Chuck and Patrice
