Mum...I know you'd be saying to me, move on, but you are in my thoughts daily. All the little stuff, like how I hold my fork. When the kids don't listen I say, "It's like talking to a brick wall!". Who planted that seed in my head? Not a day goes by that I don't think of you. We miss you Mum. So much. All of us who knew you. We feel so lucky. So damn lucky. LYLT

It is always hard to experience a loss, but Celia sounded like a woman that loved life and enjoyed every moment. I'm sure she enjoyed seeing you as a father and adored her grandchildren. You have made her proud and her legacy will live on through you.

Dear Roger and family, Celia was a wonderful intelligent woman. She enjoyed life and being married to Roger. Of course, her children were her passion. She was blessed to watch them grow up and produce many grandchildren.
We will miss the gleam in her eye, the smile on her face, and the sound of her Scottish brogue.

Roger and family- My deepest sympathy in the loss of a truly wonderful person. My fondest memories are being neighbors when our children were growing up. Celia was always such a thoughtful, considerate, vibrant person. May the memories help to sustain you through this very sad time.
Dear Dozois family,
I am so very sorry for your loss. As a childhood friend of Robert's, I have fond memories of Celia. She wasn't like my other friends' mom, serving us tater-tot hotdish and freezies. At Robert's house, we got crepes and seedless watermelon (a rare delicacy in 1989.) Her wit and Scottish accent made her seem even more "exotic" to this small town Minnesota girl. Yet she was always very relatable and kind as well. The world has lost a gem of a lady.
May many happy memories bring you comfort in this difficult time.
Dozois family, I was so saddened to hear of Celia's recent death. She was an amazing woman and I am blessed to have known her. What I will always remember about Celia was her vibrant singing, her many freckles, her zest for life and will cherish the short visits with her during her illness. She is a person that I will never forget.
Remember the many great memories and share them for these can never be taken from you and they will then live forever. My deepest sympathy and God Bless you all. Until we meet again....
To the Dozois family, I send my deepest sympathy to all of you at this time of loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
My deepest sympathies on your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with your entire family.
Just wanted to let you know I am sending my prayers and thoughts to all of you during this very difficult time. Celia was such a vibrant woman who I always respected. May she live in all of your memories. Sending hugs and kisses to all of you!
I was driving home from work today and was going to call you to tell you ... I love you
There are very few words to ease the pain of your loss. With deepest sympathy, our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time of loss and sadness. With heartfelt condolences,

Roger, Phil and all the Dozois Family:
My deepest sympathies on the loss of Celia. I have so many good memories of her coming to visit us at Breakthru, when she would come into the office and chat with me at length. She was a lot of fun and I always looked forward to her visits to the studio. You will all be in my thoughts during this difficult time. Deepest condolences, Dee Getty and Jimmy Olson
