Not sure what to say?

To Mickey and the family: Peter and I will miss the opportunity to honor Don's memory this Sunday, as we're out of town. However, you will be in our prayers for comfort. I first knew him through his support of Lutheran Ministries, now LSF, and Bay Area Legal Services,and remember not only his generosity, but his loyalty and humor. We have enjoyed the few times in his company in recent years and feel honored to have known him. His life was certainly enriched by you, Mickey. Faith Dunne

Mickey and family. We were very saddened to learn of Don's passing. I knew him as a gracious and caring man that I'll always remember and admire. At this difficult time lean on your faith in knowing he is with his Lord and Savior, God's blessings to all of you.

Mickey, Karen, Kathy, and Frank: Your father, husband, was a dear friend whom I will not forget. We enjoyed the Theater together and having fun. I will miss him. Sincerely, Jeanne

Many years have passed since Don & I were in Seminole Elementary School together and on through years of meeting occasionally and through this last year's Christmas letter he never changed from being an upright honest loyal person. May his family always know how exceptional their father was. It is a loss to us all that he is gone.

Judge Castor was one of my father's best friends in High School and beyond, and became a friend and mentor to me on the Boys' and Girls' Club board. What a nice man, of sterling character;a rare trait these days, indeed.

My heartfelt prayers go out to the families. Don will be missed. He was such a caring, compassionate man and was a role model for many. I will always cherish the memories of my conversations with Don. He was a philanthropist and always wanting to help the less fortunate.

Don was my mentor and friend. We had lively, intelligent conversations about many subjects, for years.........I will miss just knowing that he was always there and thought provoking. Prayers to his loving family.

I will miss knowing he's around. I had a great foundness for Judge Don Castor. He was for all things right and good.

We never knew the Judge but we feel he left a legacy when he produced a Congresswoman. Our hearts go out to you all.
