To Cynthia and family, my husband and I are very saddened to hear of the passing of your mother Ceil. My mother, Ronnie, was Ceil's neighbor in the room next door and I often saw you there while we were both visiting. Ceil was a sweetheart and a very down to earth person. I can see how and why she had such a lovely family. She was a gentle soul and they were a heartfelt last few weeks. So nice getting to know you. I'm sorry I missed the wake; didn't know until I saw the sign at the garden center. God bless you all. Lorrie & Steve Cancillieri

Our mom's, including Helen, were part of the Saturday night "out to dinner" club. I know my mom always looked forward to those dinners and either trying a new restaurant or visiting one of their favorites. I was able to join them a number of times when I was in NJ and it was always a riot. If I was back at my home, mom would always bring me up to speed on Saturday night or Sunday. We often visited Cerbo's Nursery through all the seasons and especially around the holidays when I'd be in town. It was always a comfort to know I could call Ceil or a Cerbo family member if I couldn't get in touch with mom and worried she needed help. It's certainly sad that they are gone now, but there are some great memories and I know what they are all doing in Heaven on Saturday nights. The funny memories get us through the tears as time heals the sharpness of the pain we feel at losing them. Hugs from all of us, Joan Hoffman's children

I'm sorry about the passing of Ignazia Cerbo. I lost my mother almost three years ago and my sister and I are still missing her terribly. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time of deep sorrow. Another angel up in heaven.
