I enjoy watching this piece occasionally as Tony (Antone) Scafani was my grandfather.  I remember the crab pots he stored and how they stunk! 

My mother, Josephine, Tony's daughter, will soon be 91 and is well. Needless to say this short video brings tears to our eyes. Please, could you correct the spelling of Nonno Tony's lastname to: SCAFANI. Thank you so much!
