Dad I have known you all my life. 😀 I know physically you're not here but spiritually you will always be in my heart. You do not have Facebook but you can hear and see what I write from heaven. I could write many chapters of your life but I will mention a few memories. You were a good person strong and gentle and loving father. You
and Mom taughtt me to be the man I am today
I remember the stories how you met mom the Army stories that you spoke few but we respected your silence. I remember the German Shepherds we had when I was a kid and the Green Camaro you had and I cherished every time we helped you feed the pigs that you raised. You worked hard to give us food toys clothing. . I remember my first Pony sunshine you and Mom gave me . I am a replica of you ; como se dice en espanol "tal palo tal estilla" something like that . I won't have your physical image with me but I will have your spiritual image in my soul. One day I will meet our maker and we will all be together you Mom and the rest of the familia in heaven . Oh heavenly father I thank you for the blessings you have given me my wife and the rest of the family . Rest In Peace dad

Castillo Family, We love you all so much. Our prayers are that God would wrap His loving arms around you all, and give you His peace. In the days ahead I pray that our Lord will give you beautiful memories of him happy in heaven with his beloved. We have the hope that one day we will see him again. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Gus was a great man, so full of laughter, and joy, now he is happy. No more pain and sickness, he left behind a beautiful family that will carry his torch. He has finished his race in this life, and has gone to where one day we hope to be. Blessings and peace to you all. Remember that he will always be with you in spirit and sweet memories. Love, Ron and Bea Durand and family
