    QUERIDA FAMILIA CASTRO, HUGUITO FUE UNA PERSONA MUY ADMIRADA POR SU FORMA DE SER, EL AMOR A FAMILIA Y SU SENTIDO DE HUMOR.EL ESTA A LADO DEL SENOR Y EN NUESTROS CORAZONES. LO ESTRANARE MUCHO YA QUE EN LAS FIESTAS ME BUSCABA PARA CONTARME UN CHISTECITO, Y DESPUES ME HACIA BAILAR COMO TROMPO, HE REIDO MUCHO Y ADMIRO EL AMOR DE ESTA FAMILIA. LOS QUIERO MUCHO!

    I’m so sorry we could not be there for you. I only talked with your dad a couple of times, but I could see the special father he was to you. Our prayers go with you and your family during this time of sorrow.

    Thank you Gus for introducing your father and mother to me and Nancy. We enjoyed our dinner and it remains in our memory. Hugo created a wonderful family, for he left me with a good friend in Gus. Thank you Hugo.

    Siento mucho su dolor y el de tu familia. La verdad tu papa fue un verdadero ejemplo a seguir de como vivir una vida llena de amor como padre y esposo. Me quedan muy bonitos recuerdos de nuestras reunions y gratos momentos que pasamos junto a el. De mi parte y de Rocio estamos a sus ordenes en lo que necesiten con toda la confianza que nos tenemos. Estamos con ustedes en su pesar. Un fuerte abrazo.
