    You will be missed by everyone who knew you. Most of all, by me. I will forever cherish all of the great memories we made together over the last 26 years. I am so glad to have been loved and raised by you. I hope you’re enjoying your time with Mom in heaven. We will miss you both but I’m sure everyone is glad that you’re reunited because I know how much you missed her.

  4. CandleImageDear Casillas Family,
    I knew Joseph so long ago as children. I’m Alfred, Dora and Baby’s cousin on their mother’s side. We were all very close and when we would visit my Uncle Fred and Aunt Fina, we would often play with the neighborhood kids, which included their cousin Joseph. I remember him and will always remember him as that little boy.
    I wish to extend my deepest and sincerest sympathy and much love to each of you.
    Agnes Talamantez Carroll
