  1. May the love of family and friends carry you through this tough time. And at some point, with a special friend, in a quiet place may you let down your guard and cry. Know that that too is okay.

  2. Cristo, always was friendly, and really had a great smile. He was one that if you said hi to him, he would say hi back. Heaven received another angel.

  3. It was an honor and Blessing to see and talk to him everyday during the school year..We lost a good man but he’s in the best place now… you’re in my prayers always..

  4. We are so sad to hear of Coach Garza’s passing. He was our son’s basketball and football coach at Round Lake. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time.
