Dad, as we approach another Father's Day without you, we remember all of the precious moments spent together as a Family. With every month of the year brings a special memory to mind. Upon visits to your grave, we are greeted by butterflies and birds, and we know that's a sign from you. As we pass by the pennies on the ground, we now pick them up, bless the ground with a cross and cherish them as a "Precious Keepsake" from you. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name, all I have are "Memories" and a Picture in a Frame, Your Memory is a Keepsake from which I'll never part. God has you in His arms, I have you in my Heart.
Love your daughter, Rose M. Castillo

Pappo.. not a day goes by that I don't miss you. You were my rock, you gave me my passion of music, along with my love for the Texans and Astros. I miss seeing your big smile every Sunday or all the times you picked me up from school. All the times you would call me after every first day of school, well your little big angel is now a sophomore in high school and she's still singing her heart out in choir. The holidays aren't the same ,but I still have all the memories of the "Pumpkin candy" or "Makin' tamales " songs. Roberto Esponja Pantalones Cuadrados is still in my mind and permanently saved in my brain. I know your looking down upon me ,watching me making sure I'm making the right choices.
I love and miss you so much pappo

Your little big angel

Dad, as Fathers Day approaches I wanted you to know what you meant to me. You were not just my baseball coach but my coach in life. You taught me life lessons that I carry with me today. You taught me to drive and now I drive to succeed. Lasting memories of going to and watching Astro games, Texan games, and sharing a championship of the Rockets will live with me forever as will the high fives when either team scored and the " hooo" as you would say. Love and miss you Dad on this Fathers Day and I know that you still watch over and protect us because it's what a great Dad continues to do.

Love always your son,

Dad we remember you today on the "1st " Anniversary of your passing. Although your no longer here in body, your presence is definitely felt. We listened to the dedication from the Gus Garza show and danced to your music holding your pictures, although it brought tears to our eyes, it also brought memories of good times at the Church dances that we attended with you. I know that your singing and dancing in the skies in Heaven. Not a day goes by that we don't think of you, but our lives go on, with you in our minds and hearts !! Miss and love you always Dad!!
