A close friend of Dove's is a friend of mine.
She told me about her and how her personality, passion and caring helped so many. The world is better for what she did for people while she was here. Sleep well, Dove.

Dear friends and family of Celestial,
I just learned of Celestial's passing and I'm so sorry about your and the world's loss. I met Celestial during orientation week of law school and although I didn't know her well, I knew she was a beautiful person. I'm happy to hear that she remained joyful in the years since graduation.

Ken -
So sorry for your loss.
Know that my thoughts are with you.
I actually remember, and have photos of, the flower girls from Beth and Ted's wedding. Celestial Dove was so cute as a flower girl, and looking at the photos in this memorial, she was beautiful as a young woman -
having the Cassman smile certainly helped!
Hopefully the cumulative effect of the support from your friends and family will help to make you smile again.

While visiting Maui I went along the highway and to Nakalele Point on several occasions ... sending love and light to all whose lives are affected by Celestial Dove´s passing. Spiritual teachings console me that we never die but only change our form. Our essence is always alive within the divine realms. Love and blessings and much aloha to all, Eva

My sister who lives in Paradise is friends with Doves sister
Crystal. This story touched my heart on so many levels. I recently lost my infant daughter. During that process i have learned the death of a child is tragic whether they are 4 weeks, 4 years or 40 years old My heart aches for her family and friends. You are in my prayers.

I knew Dove from the age of 11. She was always very focused and hard working and very beautiful. She made a person want to pick themselves up and be better, to accept more in life, to be more as a human being and to see life as a beautiful and extraordinary experience. I did not see her in her adult life but kept track of her many accomplishments through contact with her mother Deborah and sister Charity. She will be greatly missed

I did not know Dove but just heard about this tragedy and want to express my sympathies to her grandparents, Mary Ellen and Allan. I am so sorry for your loss. I can not begin to imagine what you and your family must be going through but just please know that I care and pray that you will find some peace in the many beautiful memories you must have. Based on everything I've seen she was a beautiful person, inside and out. Please accept my sincere condolences.

I did not know Celestial Dove. But I have read about what a beautiful, amazing person she was. I hope that she will continue to be an inspiration to others. I know that I feel inspired to be more giving of myself and my time. I want to wear a flower in my hair and know that this beautiful Dove made a difference in my life... even without ever knowing her.
My heart goes out to all of her family & friends. Peace be with all of you.

I did not know this smart, beautiful and giving woman that you lost tragically but her story has touched me. I am so very sorry for the loss of your lovely sister/daughter/friend. With a flower in my hair, I laid flowers for Celestial today in Maui.

What has taken place is so terribly aweful that I doubt I will ever be able to fully accept this new unfortunate reality. I am so forlorn that our bonding has ceased, but I treasure each moment and glint of angelic disposition Celestial Summer Dove so willingly gave to my often times weary soul. I am blessed and indefinitely grateful.

Thank you for your examplary life, love and belief in the pursuit of happiness and justice for all.

I love you.

I regret that I never had the opportunity to meet such a wonderful person. She gave so much to her loved ones and the community.
The world could be a better place if there were more people were like her.
You are greatly missed.

Dove had the most amazing energy and always had a smile on her face. We had a lot of fun on the cheerleading team together at Clear Lake High School. I feel so sad about Dove. I will always be greatful for the time I had with her. Her love for life insipres me and makes me want to do more good in life. Rest in Peace sweet Dove....

My thoughts & prayers go out to family, friends & co-workers of this beautiful person who died so young. I lost a son at 26 who died on Sept 1st 2000 the pain you all have I feel. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

Dove was such a strong, independent and lively person. I have many fond memories with her that I am cherishing every day. I am sorry she had to leave us this way, she deserved so much more. I wish I could have been there to help her. I am still in shock. She will never be forgotten.

It was my honor to know and work with Celestial for more than two years during her time as a Board member for Court Appointed Special Advocates. When I picture her she is radiant - flashing that beautiful smile. She will be deeply missed by every person on our Board and staff. Celestial's contributions to CASA's work for children will live on.

I sure wish I had the time to get to know you better. Robyn has shared much about you and I hope now that you can rest peacefully. See you the next time around.

Celestial was a joy to work with and was so giving of advice to me as our daughter approached taking the California Bar Exam.

I will miss her soft, yet intelligent, approach to so many items we worked on. Some of the problems we solved together were routine, some dull and some funny. It is really so hard to bring any meaning to events such as this, except to say Celestial made my life better and I will cherish her memory.

I look at you smiling face and it brings a smile to my face. I remember the lovely young woman who was my daughter's wonderful Maid of Honor just three short months ago.

I remember the good giggle had by all when the green shoes that you were going to wear as you walked down the isle were no where to be found (they were in Robyn's car) so down the isle you came, a lovely smile on your face and flip flops on your feet!! But no one even noticed, the happiness for my daughter showed on you face, and that smile was seen by all.

It brings a smile to my face when I think about that day. That is the Dove I remember. Smart, funny, roll with the punches, damn the torpedos full speed ahead, Dove.

She will forever be young and beautiful, she will never grow old, never suffer another hurt or shed another tear. Her light will always shine down on us, she will always be here, I believe our energy doesn't end, I believe all that have encountered her this life will find that energy in the next.
