Rebecca Brooks of Recuerda me Corazon invites you to visit the online Cigar Box Shrine Auction opening March 1 through March 31. Please visit here to view the wonderful shrines that have been donated by artists thoughout the country. The above shrine is my donation honoring my son Mitch Celaya who passed 11 years ago. Mitch was born on the thirteenth of February, when I finished the shrine, I counted the candles and there were thirteen. The embellishment at the bottom of the shrine is off of a necklace that I was wearing on the day he passed. On January 24, 2009...his daughter Nicole Celaya, my granddaughter, left us and went to join him. I miss you guys very much.
