Celia was friends with my Mami Inez Santillano my grandma. When she passed Celia watched me grow up and always mentioned how much my Grandma Inez would be happy to see me. I miss my highschool conversations with her when I came to her crying because how I was treated by my "ex stepmother". I thank her for her consejos her conversations of peace and most of the ever lasting memories. Love your old child hood neighbor.

When Vera passed away I
Went to visit Celia because she was always there when I needed her. She noticed that I was very depressed and asked me if I liked Cantinflas movies 🎥. She showed me a cardboard box full of videos and told me to take as many as I wanted, I still have them!!! Rest In Peace. Your brother Joe.
