Mr. Cavazos will always be remembered as a kind neighbor to me. I grew up next door to his home and then moved across the street. He brought me an American flag one day because I admired the one that he would put out on his porch. I still proudly display it on holidays and remember his kind gesture. May his family treasure his memory and find peace during this difficult time. You are in our thoughts. Please know your loss is felt by all and he will be missed.

The Fournet family extends our condolences to our beloved Cavazos family members. Uncle Danny was probably the most kind and gentle man that we have ever had the privilege of knowing. Before he became ill, he never missed a family funeral here in Louisiana and it is regretful that, due to the Covid situation, we will not have the opportunity to attend his funeral to participate in the celebration of his life. Please know that he will forever be missed.

To My Dearest Cavazos Family, some things I'd like to say... but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay. I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above. Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love. Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight. Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night. That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through, God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you." It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone. As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on. I need you here badly; you're part of my plan. There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man." God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do. And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you. And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight. God and I are closest to the middle of the night. When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears. But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain. Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain. I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned. But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand. But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er. I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before. There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb; but together we can do it by taking one day at a time. It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too... that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you. If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain, then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain." And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile, knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile. So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low, just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go. When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind; I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind. And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free, remember you're not're coming here to me. ~ Ruth Ann Mahaffey {author}

I am sorry I cannot attend the funeral, I will be out of town. Danny was my Godfather who loved me and I loved him very much growing up. My parents Gilbert and Mary Lopez picked the greatest man to be my Godfather. I love him and will miss him very much. I pray comfort for his family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Captain Cavazos was one of the nicest persons I ever met. I was honored and privileged to work with him when I first joined GFD in late 80's. He was one of the few remaining Firefighters who had actually worked with my grandfather and my father. I learned a lot from him in the way of staying calm and being nice to others. God Bless you Captain. May you rest in Peace
