Please join us as we enter into a lifetime of profound mourning for our beautiful mother, Arcelida. She was born in Arecibo, Puerto Rico on October 15,1952. This morning her pain ceased and our father extended his hand to welcome her into their forever paradise. They are together in God’s loving embrace & we rejoice. We will remember Celita by her beautiful smile, infectious laughter and for her love of life! Celita was one of the most strongest, gracious, and humble women to have walked this earth. How lucky we have been! How blessed we have been!
She is survived by her loving daughters Sandra, Maricela, and Denise. She also leaves behind her grandchildren:
Jael, Mariela, Valentina, Leilani & Alejandro. Her sons-in-laws also join the grief and they are Jose, Alejandro, and Enrique.
We will continue to honor her with every breath. Living our lives guided by the life lessons she instilled in us. Bendición querida madre.
