Abuela Celia aka Doña Celia has gone home. If you had the priviledge to know her, you know she was the heart of our family, the one who kept us together. Although we have been blessed to have had her for so long, it is a life changing moment. We pray that she has had the most beautiful welcoming through those gates of Heaven and that she is at peace with the Lord and with her husband, and late loved ones. May the Lord give her the most beautiful of all wings and may her spirit continue to bring this family together. She was truly a saint and whatever qualifications you need to earn that title, she qualified! A woman of God, she loved him first and spoke his word to all of us, no matter what age or language she needed to do it in. She was a strong soul, breast cancer survivor, her strength and devotion to her family was her motivation to live. And that she did for NINETY EIGHT (98) years!! She will be GREATLY missed. Thank you (to those of you) who when visiting Florida, had taken the time to put a visit to Abuela on your priority list. She recognized that and she appreciated knowing she was not forgotten. We'll be forever grateful to have had the privilege to say she was ours. She passed at home, pain free, in peace, and of nothing other than old age. She made it to an amazing 98 years old with all her mind and warm spirits still intact!! Very gracious to have no predeceased children. They have ALL been by her side and that is all she would've wanted and she deserved that. She has been our family Queen, touched each and every one of our lives in her own ways. We love you Abuela, you did good! You have made us all so so so lucky to have had you for so many years!! Thank you for that Jesus.. may she be honored in the heavens as she will be forever here on earth and may her legacy of family, devotion, strength, and the love of God continue to live on through our generations and those to follow. 🕊 Amen. 🙏
