Its been 29 days exactly that you have been gone, and 14 days since I found out. But everyday it gets harder. The not seeing you, hearing your beautiful voice, but most importantly the knowing that you are no longer here just hurts too much. I pray everyday for you. I know you are with God, because no matter what you were a Great Man. You tried very hard and I know that. You always felt you always had to do what was right and for that I admired you. But Thank You for including me in your life. You always did and for that I Will Forever Love You. The only comfort I get is that now you are no longer suffering, and I know you are with me too. Love You Always Art. May You Rest In Peace.

Casillas Family, We are still in disbelief that our dearest Robert is gone; but relieved to know that he IS with our God and IS healed. Robert is definitely a Ponce, as he favors my dad, his uncle Juan, in his looks, dark skin and quiet, easy-going demeanor. I will always admire his love for his high school sweetheart and wife, Gloria, for he fulfilled his marital vows until the end. Young, true and forever love is just not as common as much. I will always remember his love for music and his days of playing in the band. I will always, especially, remember our Sunday gatherings in Martindale, when growing up. Robert, I will always carry you in my thoughts and in my heart. Our heartfelt, deepest and sincerest condolences to Tia Tane, Tio Arturo, Gloria and the entire family. With love and Hugs, Sylvia and Michael Villalpando, Sr. Martindale, TX
