Celeste has always loved the color pink. She loved the brightness and happiness the color showed. After Celeste and Marvin married on August 7, 1993, Marvin began the tradition of bringing a single pink rose home from a florist every Friday after running his weekly errands. Even when Marvin was hospitalized, he made sure that Celeste got her pink rose. This became an admirable and remarkable act of love that we all cherish. Marvin and Celeste share the truest form of love that will live on forever.
