My deepest condolences to the Cantu family. Although I barely knew Mr. Cantu, exchanging only a few words over the many years we were neighbors, he never failed to give me a friendly wave hundreds of times over the past couple of decades as I drove by while en-route to my home. I’ll miss seeing him outside in his yard and his friendly smile. Turning that corner into the neighborhood somehow will never be the same. R.I.P. Mr. Cantu and hopefully we’ll meet up again someday in a different setting and catch up on things. - J. Boyd, 505 Goldfinch Street, La Bota Ranch

Olga, Clari, and Esteban, I’m so glad I got to meet you all and your dad, he was a very funny guy. I remember he asked how I was doingat Edgar’s rosary and how he jokingly teased my daughter Roselyn with a doughnut that night. Such short-lived experiences, but very meaningful and cherished memories with you guys. I will always be grateful for welcoming me to be a part of your family. My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with you. 🙏🏽🕊❤️
