To the friends and family of Ms Celestia Fisher,
I am so sorry for the loss of your dear loved one.
Death is an enemy of the human race and is merciless towards all.
Though the coming weeks and months may prove to be difficult to cope with, my hope is that you may find a measure of comfort and peace from the Holy Scriptures.
The promises made by Jehovah God will come true.
Isaiah 25:8, 9. Revelation 21:3, 4.
Take care.

I am so sorry for your loss, John. I am the oldest daughter of Lorraine and Walter (aka Uncle Penny)
Herbert. Dad was a younger brother of Watt.
Our summer vacation always included camping at Westmoreland State Park and lots and lots of visiting family. Spending time with Uncle Watt, Aunt Kate and Celeste was always a highlight. She was very kind and generous - and she and Aunt Kate made the very best ever mashed potatoes! God bless her!

I adored my cousin Celeste! She was 8 yrs older than me & we often visited her & her mom & dad in Coles Point. She was so kind & attentive to me. I loved animals like she did & there were usually cats & kittens to cuddle and play with. I remember her dog "Rags" who lived to be almost 20! She was truly one of the great joys of my young life. I so enjoyed seeing her a few times at the Herbert family reunions hosted by our cousin Bonnie Herbert Burgwald at her home on the water in Coles Point. I sent flowers w/red roses to commemorate her bangin' red Mustang! We will all miss her very much. With love & condolences to her husband & the Fisher family, Pam Herbert Rubin (daughter of Joseph Herbert, youngest brother of Celeste's father Watt).
