I had the honor of visiting Celine for St Rita´s Church for the past 7 years. I called her The Mayor of Whitney Center. She knew every single person we passed in the halls by name and would introduce me to all of them. She remembered all of my children´s names and always asked about them. I loved sitting with her and listening to her stories. Always gracious and kind, a true lady. Heaven is richer today because of you. God bless you Celine. With love, Elizabeth
