I am so saddened by Celeste's passing. I absolutely adored her and am thankful for all the wonderful times we shared. Will hold treasured memories of her visits to the Metro Detroit area, and when we visited in Alabama, close to my heart!
We had so much fun!!

She welcomed me into the Harper family like one of her own and always made me laugh. I find peace in knowing she will now be with Ruth Harper again - may they continue to giggle for eternity.

Sincere condolences to both of you, Jan & Gary! May you find solace in knowing she is at peace. Sending hugs across the miles.

Rest in peace, Celeste. You will truly be missed!

I’ll always remember you pinching my neck and calling me a “little stinker”! I still remember you telling me all of the street names you lived on and the Robelle’s store you worked at in Detroit.

Love you,

Your nephew

You were the sweetest, kindest person ever. We always had so much fun together in Colorado and Alabama or wherever we would travel to. I love now and forever. Thank you for being you.
