Not sure what to say?

To Bills wife and family,
Billy took care of my whole family for years. Two years ago laying to rest my dad, Bill Sabino, who was a lifelong friend of Billy's. Dad was insistent Celentano Funeral home would be his final resting place. Billy was there every step of the way, right to the graveside service. An incredible friend, humanitarian, civic leader, family man and loss to the New Haven Community. May he rest in peace as he is reunited with all who went before him.

For many, many years Billy and his family were always wonderful to my father, Jim Condie, and my family.

I am sorry to hear of Billy's passing and I extend my deepest sympathies to all the Celentanos. I regret not having been able to join you for Billy's services.

Dear Bill...you have always been such a special friend...a most wonderful person...I will always remember you in my prayers...love, Valerie

I would like to express my sincere and deepest sympathy in your loss. Bill was not only a gentleman, a professional, but my friend. He serviced pretty much my entire family from my in-laws to my own father and sister. As Fire Commissioner, Bill loved the Fire Service and I was blessed to have his support as a firefighter and as Chief of Department. May God Bless You and Keep You Gigi and the family during this time of sorrow. May Bill Rest In Peace.

Sincere condolences. Bill was very helpful to me in compiling information on the history of the Amity Club of New Haven when I chaired our 75th Anniversary Reunion in 2011. Could not have been more accommodating and gracious. We will miss him greatly.
