Celestis honors our American heroes



Celestis is honored to be the choice of many veterans and their families.

Staff Sergeant John Cleaver and U.S. Army Specialist Caleb Raye White will both be aboard The Heritage Flight when it lifts off from Cape Canaveral Florida in 2019. Each man leaves behind devoted family and each man was accomplished in life far beyond his years. Below are the words of their families.

Celestis can only add its thanks and respect. We will complete the task of celebrating and commemorating their lives with special care.
