"Our condolences to all the Oehman family. Celia was such a great person and will be missed by all. She was such a great friend to my Aunt Pat (Petra) and a friend of my family and my husband Bob's. We had planned on giving our condolences in person but due to the terrible situation going on right now sadly we are unable. Hopefully we would be able to attend any Memorial Service in the future."
