Sweet Celestine was a child of God welcomed into heaven by her Dad (my Uncle Corwin) and her Mom (my Aunt Netty)...

Matthew 18:3 - At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven
