Caesar is lovingly remembered by his family and friends for his unique straightforward character and sensibilities. His life experience gave him an acute ability to focus on what was truly important and brush aside the rest. His love of God and family was always evident. In his own words, "God led me on many wondrous paths, led me through thousands of dangers, and bestowed upon me good health, and he has also coined my inner life by means of faith, hope, and love." His life was truly a wonder and example of God's grace. His accounts of family and personal history are much appreciated gifts that leave a rich and enduring memory of Caesar. "As much as I keep pondering about all my life experiences, as truthfully and all-encompassing I am attempting to put them to paper, Love and Happiness are a gift from Heaven that not even the tongues of angels can describe."
