    I would like to express my condolences to the family of Celia. Joe, Duane, Diane and the rest of the family. I was one of Celia’s care givers at Christian Park for five and a half years that she was there. Celia was a woman that always made a person smile. All the years that I took care of Celia she was always pleasant and everyone liked her. To Celia’s family you are truly wonderful people. You are one of the most dedicated families I have ever met. Always being there when she needed you and even when you thought she didn’t know you were there. She did! To Joe you are a very special man, a dedicated and devoted husband. She loved you very much. I am very sorry for your loss, I know it doesn’t take away the pain of losing her but know that you are in our hearts and prayers at this time.

    A Grandmother is a remarkable woman, she’s a wonderful combination of warmth and kindness, laughter and love. She overlooks our faults, encourages our dreams and praises our every success. A Grandmother has the wisdom of a teacher, the sincerity of a true friend, and the tenderness of a mother. She’s someone we admire, respect and love very much. A Grandmother will always have a cherished place in our memories and in our hearts. She’s someone who we want every happiness, in return for the joy she always brings. A Grandmother is all the dear and precious things in life, when she’s a grandmother like mine.
