What a truly beautiful person! Ms. Caffo was one of my very first patients in my optometric practice . Her late husband signed off on my office permit. I had the pleasure of seeing her yearly for 35 years. She was always smiling and we would talk about her bowling and swimming and mutual friends. Rest In Peace dear friend.

Too many memories to count, but one that I am sure is hsare by all is her willingness to help you. Bring you in to her home and take care of you. Even come to your house to take care of yu there. She was alwys doing for others. Her strength and kindness to anyone she met was constant and that welcoming smile is something that will stay with me forever. Her sister Hedwig said it best"My sister Adie Loved life" and by doing that made us love Life with her. So glad she can be with the Lord and the love of her life Shatze!!

"Kind was her nature,
Wisely was all their doing.
Skilled hands must now rest forever."
We thank all those who lovingly cared for, sheltered and provided for her.
She will always have a place in our hearts,
Even though she is farther from us now.
Find your peace and live well.
Christian, Gabi and Daniel Daum from Völkersbach, Germany.
