  9. Dr. Casella took care of my family and children for many years in Edgewater. He was the most caring and compassionate doctor ever. I remember his relating the story of Mrs. Casella bringing him supper near the G.W. bridge when house calls kept him on the road. He also told a relative "Don't wait up for me as I,m running late. Just leave the door open, let your husband sleep on the couch, and I'll tend to him and let myself in." That's the kind of doctor he was. God bless him and his family.
    The angels are waiting to receive him with open arms and "A well done. my good and faithful servant.


  10. So sorry to hear of the passing of Dr Casella. When I first met him when you moved to Leonia, he called me "son", which caused me to look at my mother with suspicion! I got over it. He has left a great legacy with his family and those he touched and my thoughts and prayers are with you all.
