Our deepest heartfelt condolences on the loss of Celedonio. He was our father's close cousin before my father passed. We got to see him on occasion at events in Chicago Heights and he joined us at our mother's passing a few years ago. It is always hard to lose a loved one; but there has to be some comfort knowing that he has gone home to rest. We have his family in our prayers.

Yesterday's influence, today's memories, tomorrow's reunion - Holding you close in thought and prayers as you walk through this time. We recall sharing a beautiful fellowship with El Sr. Celedonio during my Mom's funeral (Teresa Zapata). What a beautiful and caring person he was.

Dear family, we trust that God will hold your family close and see through you all through this because you're all precious to Him. With hope and prayers, God cares right to the last detail. Sus primos en North Richland Hills, TX........
