My cousins Castilleja 's
Our deepest condolences for the loss of your father.
Uncle Arthur was always a soft spoken man but, always got his point across. I loved our reunion meetings with our uncles and how they always wanted us to carry on. I know he is rejoicing. With the family now. Their Heavenly family is complete. (SIBLINGS). We will miss him dearly but God called his name and he answered his call. Prayers for you all as each day we pray for comfort and peace in your hearts. God Bless you all.
