Sorry for your loss. My prayers go out to all in the Driza family.
I was shocked and saddened to hear of your passing. Even though we would speak in the halls or fund raisers and hadn't know each other long, you made such an impression on me. My heart goes out to your family. You will be missed and never forgotten. May you rest in peace...
My condolences go out to the Driza Family. Rita and Charles, your daghter grew up to be a very inspiring person and left a legacy to be proud of. Too young to leave this world. We only knew her as a young girl growing up on Frederick St. but accomplished so much in her life which will not be forgotten.

To Cecilia a spectacular woman who inspired me to push forward and always succeed. Admired by many including myself, I will never forget you and the confidence you gave me. You will be missed but never forgotten. Until we meet again. CARPE DIEM
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Ceil...we will always remember you and how you opened your arms to embrace us to your SFG family. It was always so special to see you when you would take that long ride down the turnpike. As sick as you were feeling you always made sure each office went home with a tray of your amazingly outstanding cookies at our Christmas parties. You are a role model we should all strive to even come close to imitating. Rest in peace our dear friend.
Your family at AIP
Dear Ceil, Gone too early, you will be missed forever. There are no words to express the emptiness you left in our hearts, you were a true warrior who fought to the end. May God keep you in heaven in hopes that one day we will see each other again, you ARE truly an amazing woman who will live forever in our hearts. We'll always love you and cherish your memories. Love always, Maribel

Cecilia was an amazing woman who showed me how to be a true professional. I will never forget all that she has taught me and all that she has given. Cecilia, you were the heart of our organization and we will pull together to keep the heart beating in your honor.
Dearest Ceil, Dan and Family: My heart is heavy but my memories sweet...our NYC Avon Walk together was so meaningful, thank you for including me. I will never forget your inspiration and true commitment to wellness and healthy living Ceil, and I will continue to spread the message in your honor. Much love.
Ceil my you rest in gods arms now but you will always be in our hearts Love You JEAN
This news was incomprehensible to me, and I must have misunderstood! Through the tears, and with reflection of the memories I have of her, it became clear. God decided that it was time for his angel to return home. He shared her with us for long enough, and all of us who were fortunate to know her,love her and care for her are much better for it. Her presence was immediately known, her grace and beauty just lit up any room, her words were loving and generous. I pray that with time all of us will find comfort with the thought of her smile, her words and the memory of when we had the honor and privelege to be among an ANGEL from God, a true and rare gift. Rest in Peace and thank you dear friend! I will never forget you.
Don't think of her as gone away-
her journey's just begun,
life holds so many facets-
this earth is only one.
Just think of her as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
In a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.
Think how she must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.
And think of her as living
In the hearts of those she touched...
for nothing loved is ever lost-
and she was loved so much.
Ceil you were a super strong and courageous women. Everyone will keep your memory alive. You no longer have to fight anymore. May you rest in peace
Celia, you will be missed. You fought with so much dignity. Your spirit and love lives on in your children and grandson.
Ohhh Celia...The unconditional love and immeasurable joy you brought to me will always outshine my sorrow at losing you too early to Heaven. You gave so much and took so little... I look forward to "catching up" when I see you again--my precious friend, sister and "ball of light". I love you.
