I also remember the wooden floors of Cacci's grocery store. When my Dad was out of town working on a construction job Elaine was gracious enough to let us charge our groceries until my Dad came back in town to pay. I loved going to the Cacci home w/Cathy there was always so much laughter! Elaine was a grand lady.Our thoughts and prayers are w/Sandra Wally and Family. Rest in Peace! Greg and Penny
Sandra, Wally and family,

So sorry to hear of Elaine's passing. She was a beautiful lady..
Sandra and Wally, Elaine was a sweet, wonderful person that will be missed by many. My heart is with you at this time.
So hard to say goodbye to such a wonderful woman.
As a teenager, I remember Cacci's as the store with wooden floors and lots of candy to buy.
Elaine was a beautiful lady with a personality to match.
Many years ago, my grandfather sold his Model A to Paul. Although it broke my heart to see the car go, Paul assured me that it would be well taken care of.
My sympathy to your family.
Sandra & Wally & family. I was so sad to hear of Elaine's passing. she was such a wonderful person. I met her when she and Paul were selling the tip sheets at the fair. While working in the office I saw a lot of both of them. We all have fond memories of them that will always remain with us.
Our condolences to you.

Wlaine left all of us with many great memories. Many of my fondest memeories include her playing paino and singing. I always loved seeing Elaine, because her face would brignten up, and you could feel the love. Annie and Elaine were great friends and now the four of them can be together again. With great love and respect, Pat and Shel
Sandra and Wally, We always enjoyed our brief vists with Elaine at Cacci's or CC.
Our prayers for her and all the family.
I passed the news of Elaine's passing on to my folks. They attended Fortuna High with Elaine. They told me how everyone thought how beautiful and nice she was. I knew Elaine in her last years. Nothing had changed.
such a sweet lady you will be missed by everyone that you touched and that Is a lot of people
Sandra, Wally and Family we are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you guys. Grandma was a sweet person always friendly with everyone. She will really be missed by lots of people. Grandma rest in peace, we love you.
Always a pleasant person with a winning smile.
Sandra, Wally and family, Elaine was the kindest sweetest and most hardworking lady I knew. Yet she always had time to show that beautiful smile and make you feel like her best friend. There are not many people like her. I remember her when I lived behind the store and went there everyday. She seemed like she never aged. I have many memories of her and Paul and I will keep you in my prayers. God Bless you.
Ed and I send our heartfelt sympathy to Sandra, Wally, and family. The Barisdales traded at Cacci's Grocery for years. Iremember they ran a monthly tab; which my father Millard Barisdale faithfully paid each month. One won't find that service here in L.A where I live. God Bless Elaine and Paul who were an integral part of our community. Roger and Ed Barisdale
Sandra, Your mother was an exceptional lady who will be missed by many. You two took great care of her and she knew it. She's with your dad and Cathy watching your every move, and still proud of you as always. Sorry we can't make the service.
I will never forget walking into Elaine and Paul's grocery store when we first moved to Rio Dell and seeing them dancing to music as though no one else was around. I thought it was the sweetest thing I'd ever seen. I will never forget it. May God bless your family and give you comfort.
Sandra, Your mom was so very special to our family. She was so giving and loving. I still remember walking to their store after school when we stayed at Nonni's and she took good care of us! She will be missed! Her love lives on through you - you give and love just like your mom! Love you!
Sandra,Wally & Family;
We are so sorry for your loss!
Elaine's presence made everyday special.
Her spirit will last forever in our hearts.
Frank & Elaine Luz
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
To the family of Elaine Cacci
My family lived around the corner from the Cacci's and just down the street from their store. Such great childhood memories of Elaine and Paul. Our family's got together on occasion for a great Italian meal and some good old fashion fun. I looked forward to the time spent with them. It always seemed to consist of laughter, jokes, laughter, singing, laughter, dancing, laughter, and of course food, and more laughter!! As an adult living and working in Rio Dell. I had the opportunity to spend some time reminiscing with Elaine. What a memory she had! With all the trials that came her way she was still one of the strongest people I knew. Now reunited with her loved ones; I think I hear Paul singing the loudest...'Oh won't you come home Bill Bailey...'
Precious memories to you all.
Rest in Peace lovely lady.

The horses are at the gate, the flag is up, and they're off!!!! Photo finish!!! Who's pick won? the pink sheet or the blue sheet?? Together again, Paul and Elaine. Special people. Our thoughts are with Sandra and Wally and all the family.
Great Lost......Loved Her....
Any kid who grew up in Rio Dell in the ‘60's remembers Cacci's Market - worn wooden floors, produce in the lug boxes, all that candy right down there low where you could study it and decide how to spend the sweaty change in your hand - and Mrs. Cacci. I left Rio Dell as a teenager & moved back after 20 years. The first time I saw her after that I said “Hi Mrs. Cacci, I remember you from when I was a kid” she replied “Oh yes, Karin, you are Millie's granddaughter” WOW! She also told me I didn't have to call her Mrs. Cacci anymore LOL. She will be missed by many; my condolences to Sandra and all the family. Rest in Peace, Mrs. Cacci.
Sandra and Wally,
We are so sorry to hear of your loss. Elaine was a wonderful person whom we will never forget. May she rest in peace.

What a wonderful lady she was. She will be missed.
