Aunt Audrey sent a story: My brother was so good to all of his sisters and his mother and father. When he was in the army, he would send money home to his Mama and Daddy to help out. When we were little girls, he would always bring food and drink when he came to visit and make 'french market' donuts for us. When he came down to the country, he would cut his mother's grass and always check on his sisters to make sure they were okay. He was so good to his family.

Celestino Alfonso represented a type man that is now hard to find. Family was his first priority, just in front of happiness. He was raised through tough times, but he managed to find meaning and joy in his life. Celestino didn't have much in terms of tangible items, but yet he was wealth. Rich with what mattered to him the most: his wife, two daughters, grandchildren, and the plethora of friends he made along his journey. I suggest everyone takes a lesson from this man. He was a man of joy and content. Contentment is not the fulfillment of what you want, but the realization of how much you already have.
