When I returned home after a hospital stay, I was so sad to learn of Dr.B's death. I worked for him for more than 22 years in
Yonkers. What a wonderful person. I even took art lessons with him! To all the Berrafati family, please accept my deepest
sympathy. Sincerely, Nancy Spizzirro

I know Mr.Berrafati as Linda’s father. She talked a lot about her Dad to all of us at the place where she exercises.
She loved him dearly and was so proud of the fact that he exercised everyday. I had the opportunity to meet him when he came at Easter. I commented to Linda that at 89 years of age, he was such a handsome man! The three of us had an impromptu party with coffee and some Italian sweets. We reminisced about Italian food, culture and life. It was as if I was talking to my family. We were laughing and we had a ball.
Your Dad was so full of life just like all of the Berrafati’s! I am so sorry for having lost this great man at such a young age! 💕❤️😥
