    Paul, Paul Jr., Mike, Brian and Carl I’m sorry for your loss and I’m sorry I was not there for the Funeral. I was out of town and Mom told me about it over the phone. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this sad time. We had so much fun together when we were kids mainly running from your German Shepard. Take care and God Bless.

    So sorry for your loss Mr. Castillo and sons. I loved Mrs. Castillo and she always had a smile on her face. I remember Mr. Castillo walking with her after her stroke much like Daddy did when Mom had her stroke. She is in heaven with Daddy watching us all.

    I’m so sorry to hear about Linda. My Dad,Johnny, forgets to tell us these family things. I remember Linda as a vivacious, redhaired teenager, dancing to rock & roll music. We rarely saw each other, but I never forgot this memory. My sympathy to her family. May peace be with you.

  9. Dear Big Paul, Little Paul, Mike and Lezlie, Brian and Jill, and Carl Lynn and Leslie,
