  2. Ceasar was a man of faith, love and strength.

    In Heaven, the Angels know Ceasar from his work on Earth.

    Ceasar took the road less travelled frought with risk and reward.

    Ceasar was not like other men. Baptised by fire at an early age, Ceasar learned the way of the world and never looked back.

    I know he was hurt when he lost the mother of his sons.

    Till very late in life, he suffered the truth, of being alone. While other men sought comfort in ways that men will do, Ceasar fought on and choose ro commit his suffering to God.. to those in need..and always in silence.

    Ceasar was always sharing with those who came for help.

    If there was battle, Ceasar would not apologize and be first in fight.

    There is no greater love of man, than the sacrifice of one’s life to those in need…espeecially …when you are in true need yourself.

    Ceasar was King, a Man, and a true friend to those who walked not in front or behind..but beside.

    Ceasar taught me Joshua 1:9

    I thank my God for having known Ceasar and for being in the presence of his ‘Anquillare’ name With Ceasar Anquillare, you had his trust and fidelis.

    Ceasar Anquillare …a true son of his community, his Roman Catholic Church and his family of stength and honor..

    What more could a ‘Son of Rome’ ever be. Ceasar Anquillare is ‘Son of Rome’.

    The Angels welcome their own.

    Ceasar …please remember the ‘Sons of Rome’ and the pride of West Haven…

    Ceasar …man for all times.

    See you on the bacci court.

    God Hear Our Prayer.

    Christopher Duffy
