Pam, I am just hearing of your loss today. My heart is so broken for you. Illness is so trying, and then to lose the love of your life is so crushing. I pray that your faith sustained you in those days. Sid and I send our sincere condolences to you and your family. Knowing the two of you since high school, your marriage, your becoming parents are very nice memories for us. Sid & I are still in the same home your dad sold us. I am just learning of you losing your dad today as well. Arthur was a gem and continues to be in heaven. Keeping your beloved Art in conversation, will forever keep him alive. I know that you will hold him in your heart forever. I would love to see you again. But for now...I am sending you the biggest hug dear friend. Sid & I read Arts obituary together tonight, and will pray for all of you to remain in God's light, in peace.

On the very first day I walked into NKSP Art greeted me with a smile and firm hand shake. If ever I had a question he was there to listen and guide me. As the years progressed I thought of Art as my mentor and a friend. When I was in route to his area I would stop by and mess his desk up a little and take his staples our of his stapler, Art always knew who had stopped by to brighten his day. ? Art treated everyone as a friend and I felt very fortunate to know him as my friend. We send our deepest condolences to the entire CASTRO FAMILY in the loss of Art. There is another smiling angle in heaven looking over us all. With the loss of Art it has left a emptiness at NKSP, may he rest in peace and no longer in pain and keeping everyone smiling and laughing in heaven. ?

Mi amigo, Art, Terri and I send our love and wishes for a happy birthday – for we know that you are in heaven today as you commemorate your 60th. We trust that you know that your family and friends are gathering today to honor your remarkable life and to pay their last respects as you make that transition to heaven. I am saddened that I did not get to know you better but I want you to know that you always made me smile and brightened my day each time that I saw you when I returned to visit my hometown of Bakersfield. Terri and I often talk about how honored and appreciative we were to have you help coordinate security for our wedding! That is one of our fondest memories. To Pam, Christina, Priscilla and the rest of Art's family and friends, we wish we could be there with you today but please know that our thoughts are with you as you say goodbye to this wonderful man.

My dear friend Obie, I was deeply sadden to here the passing of Arthur. I will always remember playing as kids when we lived next door each other, especially one incidence when we were playing with dirt clogs and I picked one up and threw it up in the air and came down on Arthur and hit him on the head, he started crying and I kept telling him please don't tell your mom. I don't think he ever did. He was a very special person and will be missed. My heart felt sympathies and condolences to you and all your family.

My uncle was such an amazing influence in my life! He taught me to keep family first, take the opportunity to say "I love you", and to find ways to be silly! I'm so happy that my daughter was able to know you for the first year of her life! I will always love you and cherish the memories I have of you!!! Rest in peace sweet Tio! I love you!

To My Other Family,
I just keep thinking about Art teaching Priscilla and I how to drive stick shift...when we were 11. He is one of the best men I have had the pleasure of knowing! I'm so thankful to have had him in my life, since the age of 10. Pam, Cristina, my best friend Priscilla and Jayden...I love you all so much. I will do my best to help you though this loss. I'm thankful that Emma Grace will have Art as a guardian angel! You are in my heart and my prayers always!
All My Love, Katie Hale
