"Aunt Cece was one of the kindest people. From the moment I started dating my husband (her nephew and Godson), I was always "her niece". She was strong, fiercely loving, and extremely generous. She was strong in her Catholic faith and helped me to be stronger in mine. I will miss her terribly but my heart is comforted when I think of her in the light of Jesus and with Jeremy forever. I love you so much Aunt Cece!"
