I just wanted to express my condolences to the Cella family. My thoughts and prayers go out to you all. Chris and Diane it's been many years but my memory of your dad was that he was a good man and always treated me kindly.

My trips to Florida were never complete unless I spent time with my Uncle and Aunt. He was always warm and inviting and loved spending time with me. We often traded recipes and when he was well cooked the most amazing meals. I have beautiful memories spent with my Uncle and I will miss him and his stories.
With love,
Mary Ann
