To an angel full of life....... u will always be remembered for the smiling, hard working, go getter person u were. The pics and videos u would always post showed us a side of u that we couldn’t see at work. U lived ur life to the fullest. U made life look like u had no care in the world. It hid the Demons that haunted u well. Rest easy now. I know that u will always be looking down on ur friends and family and taking care of them. Heaven is a beautiful place that u can continue to rejoice. We will miss u.

Heaven has gained the most wonderful soul. Thank you for being such a great friend to Oliver. You were always so funny, witty, sweet, and welcoming. I was always excited to see you when I’d visit him and those are times I’ll cherish forever. Rest peacefully Cely, Cel.

Oh how much your going to be missed, I was talking to my mom the other day how the holidays are going to be so lonely without you, always hearing you ask "whats there to eat?", "Ooo tomalees" your going to be missed everyday, we're all going to miss that contagious laughter of yours, and that bright big smile you'd always have. I love you so much Chechy.

Some people make a prolific impact in your life after just one brief connection. Cel, you had this impact in my life. I had the opportunity to meet you and spend a weekend with you, and even 7 years later I hold that vacation as an event I cherish deeply. I’ll always remember you from those genuine, fun, and positive moments together. You inspired me to enjoy every single moment and interaction so much more. Thank you for sharing a moment of your life with me, those short days will stay with me forever.

“You again?” These were the first words I said to you the day we met at that training class (in the bathroom lol) We both smiled, introduced each other and automatically became friends. I loved your persistence and determination......I’ll never forget you! Love you Cel ❤️

The years may pass but the memories never fade. Thank you for the countless laughs and good times throughout the years. From pulling all nighters prank calling people in jr high or making dance videos to random songs at 1am because we were bored lol. I was always treated like part of the family and I think I spent more time at your house than my own at some point.. Thank you Aracely for putting up with me during those times 😄 I am forever grateful for the memories we made. You will always be loved and remembered by so many down here. Fly high you beautiful angel ♥️♥️♥️

Ps: Tell my mom I said hello up there 😇💜

Sister, I am so thankful for the memories you have left me. I am so blessed to have experienced so much life, so much love, and to have laughed as much as I have with you. You will always be remembered in Ollie’s and in my life. We will celebrate your name through the seasons and someday let our kids know about how their mommy and daddy met all because of beautiful YOU. You will live forever inside my heart. My Angel, your wings already exist - All you have to is fly ♥️
