  2. Our children couldn’t have been blessed with a more amazing great grandfather. I’m so glad they were able to spend so much time together. Gretchen says we will miss great grandpa but he is much happier in heaven waiting for us! Until that day JL, you will be missed.

    J.L Castro was a great man who lived to the ripe old age of 92. He left a legacy of wonderful children who in turn raised children in the things of God so that they too will not depart from the ways of the Lord when they grow up. While we morn the loss of this family icon that was in many ways a humble man, we celebrate the long life God gave him and approach the throne room of heaven with a profound sense of gratitude and thanksgiving. Yes they will be many stories told about J.L Castro during the funeral by those who were close to him that would bring joy & laughter to ones heart and in the same environment tears shed that he is no longer with us. My wife Juanita & I morn with our relatives over this loss and on the other hand we bring all family members to remembrance what the Holy Scripture says, that to those who are of Christ, to be absent in the flesh(death) is to be in the presence of the LORD(Heaven). In a nutshell , J.L Castro has departed unto Glory to be with his Maker who called him out of this world. To God Be The Glory !
