Keeping you all in prayer for the peace of Jesus to be in your hearts. While I am happy that Caz is in no more pain I am so very sorry for the loss you feel! We have hope in Jesus that you will all be reunited again one day!!! Caz was always a funny guy and I enjoyed the time I was able to know him and help to rake that yard with my Best Friend Debbie Pietras. May God's rich Blessings rest upon you all.

I'm sure going to miss Cazy, but we have good family memories. Tried to book a flight, but because of weather conditions decided it best to stay home. Know that all of you will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I remember Cousin Caz as being one of the funniest guys I knew and really enjoyed family gatherings that we attended with him. A great guy, God bless him and sincere condolences to all the family. Tom Boduch, Centerville, MA.
