I am so sad to hear about Santo. I was fortunate to have known him from
Rocky River Stables. Santo made everyone's day better, both humans and horses, He had the kindest , most sincere personality. Santo made this world a better place and will always be remembered for his dedication to giving so much to others . Santo may you ride in green pastures forever in Peace, and in the hearts of many. Holding all of his loved ones in my thoughts and prayers🙏
With sincere sympathy,

Dear Malave Family,
I am so very sorry to learn of the loss of your beloved Santo. He was a shining light, caring and kind. Gentle and sweet. Sincere, watchful, and authentic. Our world is a little more broken without him here. Please know that he meant so much to so many and that he will be missed by all.

I have wonderful memories of Santo taking my brother and sister and me to meet his horse, Buen Chico. He was generous, kind and always ready with a quick smile. We were lucky to know him. Although I miss him, I know he is running to paradise!

Santo was at our barn for years. He was truly one of the nicest men you could meet. Always, always willing to lend a hand. We will miss you Santo!

I am so sorry for your loss.
I worked with Santo at the riding stable. He was always so friendly and kind to me. He had a very generous spirit and gentle soul.
