    Cavatini. Cavatini. Cavatini.!!!
    More barn yard crossings between us than I can remember.
    I pray God will grant you the peace and serenity you have so long been searching for; And pray
    continuity and certainty rest upon all your family, friends, and those whom may have walk a mile or two with you, and God has succeeded in doing just so.
    My deepest condolences and sympathy to family.
