Mike,

I am just today, 10/10/19 hearing of this absolutely tragic news. When we spoke last, I'm glad it was such a good, uplifting conversation (they always were!) You've been such an important person to my family and myself and I will always cherish that. Thank you so much for everything and every time you've been there for us over the years. You will always have a special place in our hearts and I hope you will continue to watch over us in the afterlife as well. To Mike's family, I'm so sorry for your loss of such a wonderful, giving and kindred soul. My thoughts and prayers go out to you all ♡ I hope you can be surrounded in love and comfort as we all know that's what he would want ♡

Dear family of mike Castro,

I just wanted to send my condolences to all of you during this difficult time! Mike was a great man to be around. I met him through my fiancé Gregory VanArtsdalen who knew him prior to when he worked for Nissan. He will be greatly missed by all whose lives he has touched throughout his lifetime. Again, sorry for everyone’s loss!

May he guide you with strength through the years to come! God bless you all & May he Rest In Peace!
