We were friends for over 50 years.My best friend. Ceal was feisty and so much fun. I have so many wonderful memories of our time we spent together. It was never a dull moment when she was around. I think that is one of the reasons she was so loved. There is no doubt her family was the most important thing in her life. They were always in her heart. Ceal was a beautiful and kind special person. I will miss her.
