I love you dad! I miss you so much each and every day. We have so many memories from going out and shooting pool to just hanging out at your house. None of it compares to that last hug we had together when I came over. I remember I was outside talking to midget when she was leaving and you walked out and yelled "hey chief" and when you walked up I put my hands on your cheeks and looked in your eyes and smiled and said you look really good dad. I have never seen your smile so big as you teared up and told me you love me. Like I told you when I was 6 years old living on Southern Ave. You can never be replaced dad! Just know you are an amazing dad and you did make me proud to to say you're my dad. I'll always keep you with me everyday and everywhere I go. I love you with all my heart dad. I'll have a Corona and a chilled shot of Crown to of all of our memories!

When we visited your family in Arizona way back in early 90s, you showed us your huge collection of LP records. I admired your passion for analog music that goes beyond what they sound like. It's hard to quantify, but there is something about LP sound that captivates even critical, sophisticated listeners. That's one side of me that I could relate to you. I was playing my LP records today to commemorate your love of analog music. Rest in peace Manong Boyet. You will be forever in our hearts.

Rest In Peace Manong Boyet, you've had a long journey. I'm so sorry you were unable to meet with us last summer when I called. We did go to your casino, hoping you would be there, unfortunately we were not able to find you. However, I do believe you thought of me during your last hours as I came across your birth certificate and driver's license (the ones I requested recently), in my files on two different occasions (once at work and another at home) prior to finding out you have passed. I later realized it was your way of saying "goodbye." So sorry we can't be there with you and your family. Give Inang a big hug and tell her how much we miss her.

Oh my, manong Boyet, just can’t believe your passing! I only can remember all the past memories when we all lived in one house apartment owned by my sister Madrona in Los Angeles in the 70’s. Those memories are forever be treasured by my husband and I. You and your family were part of our lives. I have known you as a big , husky and buff but with a kind and soft hearted guy! I remember your very beautiful children especially Shanna! Our deepest condolences to your children and to the Cajas family! May your soul rest in eternal peace and let perpetual shine upon you!
Love and prayers,

1st of all...My condolences to his family.
I've known Tino for many years working at the casino. He was always thoughtful and kind, not to just me, to everyone that knew him. We always shared a good joke or a good cry(on my end). God bless you and keep you in his loving arms.

Tino was one of the funniest bartenders to work with. We would butt heads because we both took what each other commented on or said offensive! Lol
I just realized that recently after almost five years of working with him.
Awe Tino .....I’m really going to Miss you. I am so very Grateful that I got to see you one more time before you passed. That was the only time and you were so compassionate, calm and sincere.
I love you Tino Rest In Peace my friend.
