In Memoriam Celia Hohol
On July 18th, 1996, the Lord above decided that He needed the loving
assistance of the heart and soul of our family, Celia Hohol, to assist
Him in His heavenly duties.All of her friends and relatives miss her dearly.Her
ready smile and helpful, loving care, together with her quick wit, made
life more pleasant for all of us to endure.
Her kindness and gentleness towards all people shall always be remembered
by those of us that were fortunate to have been touched by their contact
with her. We shall always remember her and only hope that her life in heaven
is as kind to her as she was to those of us that were left behind.
May God Bless You, Celia Hohol.
