Mrs. Castelin was one of the sweetest & kindest persons I was blessed to know. The Wiese children & the Castelin children grew up together at Our Lady of Lourdes parish. There are so many memories to cherish but most of all the wonderful fish fries we used to have at Cadillac Square on Dauphin Island. Mrs. Castelin was a good friend to my mother and I will always love her for that. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her. My heart & my prayers go out to her family. May God's peace & strength help them through their grief.

Mrs. Castelin was a kind and lovely lady. I cherish the memories the Castelin and Wiese families made growing up together. We still fondly talk about the many fish fries our families had together on Dauphin Island. Mrs. Castelin was a very special person. May God bless the family.
