I'm Tony's cousin. His uncle (my father) was Frank Casas. My mother, Delfina Casas has passed away and I have been trying to find current phone numbers for any of our family members. Please reply either way. My wife and I were at Tony's funeral services.

Where two of the most loving people I have ever met. They loved my father Frank and my mother Delfina as well as providing the love to us children. My aunt Emma would be wounded in her heart if she read these posts. Tony and Dorothy where like "Peas & Carrots" and their love was genuine. You didn't have to spend much time around them to feel the love. That love also shined to all around them like sunlight.
I attended my Uncle Pete's funeral. Tony gave a very emotional eulogy and heartfelt acknowledgement of Vivian. That should be enough said. Who ever you are Nick you should have some respect. It's obvious you have an angry heart and wish to hurt. Stop your insane comments.
Call me any time.

Perhaps you should learn that silence says the most. Perhaps when they where alive you should have confronted them. Perhaps spewing venom in this forum is your way of healing. To me it's about placing events in your life that hurt in there place...Get over it. Settle it with yourself and your family. Learn to be noble. Not all feel the same way about them.
I'm not brainwashed..nobody put me under a bright light and told me what to feel and think.
My experiences where of love and family with Tony and Dorothy and their children. Yes..there are skeletons in all our closets. You must be one of them.

vivian is the daughter of tony casas sr. but tony casas sr. never raised vivian and never tried to be a real father to his own daughter why is that?? is it because vivian was born out of wedlock,well alot of people in this world are born out of wedlock so what makes vivian any diffrent???do you hate all children born out of wedlock??because i think its a ugly thing to judge vivian just because she was born out of wedlock..i wonder what its like to be so good and perfect like tony casas sr. and dorothy casas and all his children think they are.......

I agree with you. There should be nothing wrong with children being born out of "Wedlock"
But you didn't live in that era...there was a "stigma" about those thing at the time...again I'm not agreeing at all about it being right..or wrong. You have to understand the times..your young and have no idea how the 50's,40's & 30's where. They are a poduct of their times.There was also racial discrimination, very few women rights...no birth control pills,no abortion rights. Hell why he didn't use a condom we'll never know. Sheeze..if they had abortion rights at the time you would't be here cursing Tony.
The list is long. The world was completely different from today.
Just be grateful...that they did have Vivian and let it go at that.

I am Vivian's daughter. my mother had a wonderful life being raised by my grandparents Pete & Emma...I dont know why you are trying to make her out as the bad one here. She is a wonderful mother, to my brother and me...she gives us lots of love and is always there for us. All of this business of who is the bad one is so very stupid.
I dont appreciate you Michael Casas or anybody else speaking ill of her when she doesnt even know about this site...She told me about your mother and about you, and how sweet you were to her at my grandma's funeral....well can believe it of your mother, but not of you. You sound like a trouble maker and I will not post on here anymore....because anybody who puts my mother down is worthless to me.....and keep your phone number, not interested....
