My heart goes out to my family in this time of sadness, my deepest condolences to her children Jennifer, Jessica and Matt and to her husband Gordon. I was not fortunate enough to grow up with my sister Celeste and we didn’t talk often for a long time but I thought of her and spoke of her often.The memories I have of her are faint but my love for my sister was always there. The only memory I can really remember is when were all at my brother skips house for a cook out and we were all there it was such a great day being with all my brothers and sisters I wish we had more of that I wish we had more time. We finally found each other again and we were having our sisterly chats every few days and planning on getting together and trying to get back what we lost, what we missed and now you are gone, I will hold what ever moment we had and every talk we had close to my heart and I will always love you and I will miss you deeply..until
We meet again my dear sister rest easy.
With love always your little sis...naomi ❤️

All my love and sympathy to my cousins Jenn, Jess, and Matt, and to Uncle Gordon. Of course to my dad, uncles Skip, Eric, Nathan, and aunts Necole and Naomi - my love and heartfelt condolences on losing your sister.
Aunt Celeste, it would have been wonderful to have talked with you one more time. We didn't have enough, but I will always hold dear the wonderful memories I have. I always loved spending time with you. Holidays were extra special when we were all together at your house. Easter egg hunts with the special treat of finding the "golden egg." Wonderful Thanksgivings and Christmases. And the family clam bakes and picnics. I wanted to be a paralegal like you, so I put myself through school and became one. You were always someone I looked up to. I hope you knew that I loved you very much and always wished I could spend more time with you. You will always be in my thoughts. I hope you and grandma will help me through the rest of my days. Love you!
