06/01/1972 – 02/29/2016

My brother was diagnosed with stage 4 Melanoma at the beginning of February 2016. It was hard for all of us to accept… Here was a man full of life and love.  An RN dedicated to his job and family.  A son to Martin & Nelda Polanco; brother to Melinda, Melisa, Michelle, Cindy & Candy; husband to Gery Cavazos; and new proud father to Luke & Zach.  Sad to say he lost his battle February 29, 2016.  Cancer took him faster than we expected.  Through it all he was strong and determined to fight against it.  My brother was good and kind.  I know he will never be forgotten.

I thought of you with love today
but that is nothing new
I thought about you yesterday
and days before that too,

I think of you in silence
I often speak your name
All I have are memories
and your picture in a frame.

Your memory is my keepsake
with which I’ll never part
God has you in His keepsake
I have you in my heart.

I love you “Bo”
