Stephanie and Alfredo, Its with great sadness to see a truly impressive man leave us. I can remember meeting Mr Cruze as a Young boy at your home he was always a gentleman. As I got older he would alway stop to say Hello and ask how I was doing.When I would see him church he always smiled, God Bless you and your family

Stephanie and Slugger, These are some unpresidented and unfair times we are living in. My heart is broken for you both, not being able to see your Dad face-to-face for so long. We are sending prayers and virtual hugs to you both. Your Dad was a very kind, gentleman with a smile that would light the darkest of times. I'm sure you have tons of great memories to make you smile. May God bless you with peace. Love, Tony & Darlene
