Aunt Ceil was my favorite Aunt. She taught me how to roller skate by holding one hand and her friend Helen holding the other hand. They had me skating up and down Central Ave. and then let me go. Spending weekends at her house was great. She cooked whatever you wanted for breakfast, six different meals. We played the piano, she played by ear and we sang all kinds of songs. She knew all kinds of jokes and could sew out of this world. Everbody loved her. She and I could talk for hours. I am going to miss that beautiful smile. You're in my heart forever. Love "Oopie" Carolyn Sue, only she called me these names.

She always gave me lots of hugs. I am her great  nephew, we called her Aunt Ceil. She was my grandmother's sister.
I remember as a kid going to their home in Manchester NJ, great food the swimming pool,  reel to reel home movies and the mini dirt bikes that my cousin's used to ride. Heaven has gained another angel! My thoughts and prayers are with the family may you rest in eternal peace Aunt Ceil.

My last Aunt, who was wonderful Auntie was so talented and was an excellent cook. I will always remember the many times we would always get together at her house for every holiday, her house was open to us all the time.I could talk to her about anything and she never told anyone my secrets. She loved being involved with her church and would travel "all over" carrying out her duties. She loved her family dearly and I know they will miss her. Your struggles are over Auntie, rest in peace😇❤
