    Dear Linda & Family,
    Aaron, Heidi and myself…..(Karen Eskovitz Waeschle) married to Rudy Eskovitz so many, many years ago now…..send our condolences to you. CeCe was the sweetest sister-in-law to me and a wonderfully warm, caring aunt to Aaron & Heidi.
    Linda….your Mom was always so elegant and a true class act. I know Alice also loved her dearly, just as I did.
    She’s lived a long life and what makes me happiest is she had all those years to enjoy her grandchildren which I know she worshiped. May your memories warm your heart and help ease the ache I know you are feeling. No matter how long of a life our Moms live, it’s never long enough …is it? With love, Karen, Aaron & Heidi

    Although I hadn’t seen Aunt CeCe in quite some time she was always in my thoughts. Aunt CeCe was the nicest most welcoming person I think I have ever met. Her lifetime karma was A+ rated and her long joyful life is proof of that. I would so look forward to our weekend trips to see Uncle Fred and Aunt CeCe in Lansing when I was growing up. Lots and lots of great memories for me. My thoughts are with Linda and family and they are very blessed to have had Aunt CeCe in their lives.

    She was my favorite Aunt who was married to my favorite Uncle Freddy. I will always remember when I lived in Lansing and they took care of me when I was a child. In my later years I remember how well she welcomed my new bride to the family. I shall always remember her as a very special Aunt.
