    Dear Vi and children, we are with all of you in spirit.
    Al was a wonderful person who shared his home, his cooking, his garden and his Alaskan salmon with us so many times.
    Most of all, he shared his faith and left a legacy of good will.
    He has seen the face of God this Christmas!

    Deepest sympathy for Vi and the entire family. Al and Vi were the ultimate example of faith and commitment in marriage, a steady and shining light of what any of us could hope to be in life. Thank you for your service to our country and to the church you love, and for the gift of your friendship. We will miss you at mass on Sunday and especially your strong coffee and Louisiana humor, rest in the arms of Jesus and Mary…..

    Viola, Catherine and I send our sincere regards for you and your family at this time. of sadness. As one of the “younger” Cavani cousins, and the unofficial historian of the Cavani family, we are all sorry for the loss of yet another member of our rich ancestry. Alan and I, at different times, shared the common experience at the same university and also with our service in the Air Force. Alan’s memory will be with me forever. Louis & Catherine Medal

    Aunt Viola and my Cucullu cousins I am so very sorry for your loss. Uncle Alan was one of the best storytellers I have ever known. I so enjoyed when they would come visit my parents so he could catch me up on what all of you were doing. Heaven has gained a beautiful soul in him.
