Sending my love and prayers to this loving family for their loss. Celeste never let a moment out of the day pass that she wasn't spreading Gods word. She loved everyone and everyone loved her. I will miss her and her heart of "gold." She always lifted my spirits with her smile and laughter, I will miss our late night talks and hearing her giggle as we tried to solve all the worlds problems. She adored and loved her family. God received a beautiful Angel! Love you Celeste!

To the family of Celeste;

Sandra, I am so very sorry for the tremendous loss of your loving daughter. I share this short piece that I borrow from a very close and dear friend.

"I know it hurts, but you are strong and you get to keep all those good memories; the ones that no one else took the time to talk about or listen to.

She is in your heart, she will whisper in your ear, she will brush your cheek, and she would tell you not to be too sad.”

It is difficult to let them go, but they are still with you; only on another plane. You will always be her Mother, and she will always love you.

Celeste, you are so loved, and you will be missed.

God Bless,

Rita Yates

Mickey & family, there aren't enough words to express how terribly sorry I am about Celeste. She was my best friend & partner in crime. Like you, I am devastated at the loss of her. I will be praying for all of you during this time. I love you all!
