Dear Yvonne and Fred and Cafini Family,
I was proud to serve Mr. Cafini, a kind and gentle man. I knew that he lost his wife early in life and told him more than once how well he did raising his children. My deepest sympathies to all.

I have such sweet, sweet memories of my darling Uncle Kiki. Most of them are from my childhood when my family lived close by and we saw, Uncle, Auntie and my cousins frequently. The memories I treasure most have to do with Uncle's utter love and devotion for my Aunt Fran. Now, I know they are dancing together again, at peace, in love and free from all worldly concerns. That makes me smile deeply!
I thank you dear Uncle for all that you were and all that you so freely gave. We all love you and will miss you.

Uncle Kiki you've been waiting
for our Lord to call your name
Yes he's ended all your sorrows
all your griefs and all your pain
Now your loved one's all await you
yes the ones who have gone before
Heavens gates have opened for you
Now your joy is forever more
Thanks Uncle Kiki for being such
a special uncle.
Your nephew, Sam Mustazza & family

Pappy taught me everything I needed to know to live in this world. He was a teacher,a mentor, a friend and a buddy. If I were asked to tell a story about dad it would take a life time to tell. He wasn't a story but an experiance. I could never fault him because he did his best for what he knew and what he had. All of which he gave to anyone who knew him. His wonderful memory will always live in me untill we meet again. I have always been proud to be your son. Thanks dad
