Dear Friends and Family,

On behalf of Celina A. Ornelas’ family, we want to extend our deepest gratitude to each and every one of you for the unwavering support and kindness you’ve shown us during an incredibly challenging period.

Your outpouring of support, from the comforting words and prayers to the heartfelt gestures of food, flowers, and presence, has been a source of immense strength for us. Your thoughtfulness and compassion have touched our hearts in ways we cannot adequately express.

We would also like to extend a special thank you to Father Mike Alcuino for his guiding presence during the services, offering solace and understanding during this difficult time.

Your kindness has made an indelible impact on us, and your support has been a beacon of light in our darkest hours. We are sincerely grateful, and your gestures of love and support will forever be cherished in our hearts.

With heartfelt thanks,

The Ornelas Family
