Five years ago we lost a beloved son, dedicated brother, resolute father, amazing friend, and one hell of a Border Patrol Agent. Cruz "Corky" McGuire left an impact on so many people, many of whom he never knew he had made an impact on. He was and continues to be a dedicated family man, because I know he watches over all of still here on the ground. I miss my big brother dearly, think of him daily, and still talk to him when I need his advice. I choose to celebrate his life now instead of mourning the loss of it. for forty years I was blessed with an incredible brother, we butted heads as brothers do but he was always there for me and my family. I miss him and love him and can't waite to see him again because I know he goes before us to prepare a place for us in our heavenly home.

Poem for Cruzito "Corky"
The last goodbye
You died on the twenty first and I seat here thinking of you, so empty now my soul is without you, your co-workers said you didn't suffer,perhaps that brings comfort to my soul and I know that at that moment God was with you. Now you are in heaven and on the wall too. Your eternal sleep is well deserved because such a brave man you were, it makes me think about the last goodbye, you held my hand against your heart, and told me that we would never be apart. Your time ran out on Earth and you left me too soon to start your journey in heaven that must be so peaceful and so magnificent for you not to return. My tears start to flow and I lose control because I miss you so, I tried not to cry because you want me to be strong for our daughter, now all we have is memories and your picture in a frame but you and everything of you remains in our hearts. At nighttime I pray to God in my solitude of widowhood and with tears in my eyes and your picture close to my heart, I pray to get through on my own. Until we meet again, we can dance to our song and you sure did "Had me from Hello".

Poems for Cruzito "Corky":
My sorrowful soul searches in my solitude of widowhood,
I sit here looking at the moon and acting like a fool and soon
wondering why so suddenly my life of happiness turned to ugly
You told me a thousand times we would never be apart,
you saw heavens glories shine like the sun but your Farewell cuts like a knife.
My tears start to flow I lose control I miss you so.
I pray to God for your soul and with tears in my eyes, I must let You go.
I pray to God to get through on my own and see our daughter grown because that is what you want me to do. Life must go on now; your eternal sleep is well deserve for such a brave man you were, your memory will remain Engraved in my soul.

May 21, is just around the corner, and time has gone by so quick. May 21, 2009 seems just like yesterday and every day, every week, every month and every year that goes by we think of you. Our daughter is almost thirteen years old and I remembered how you used to tell me that I was a great mother and that if anything was to happen to you, that our daughter will be in good hands, but even with our differences you and I created good memories for our daughter. You used to tell me "que no te importe lo que diga la gente", we both gave each other headaches, but we sure gave each other love and you always did respected my decisions. Our daughter is an honor roll student, and she has all advance classes, she will be going to 7th grade pretty soon and she sure has a lot of your personality, even when you said she had more of my character. She is strong, independent, and pretty young lady, but she complains that she inherited your eyebrows which looks like she has one eyebrow and people says she looks just like you. The other day we went to the Fallen Memorial events at the mall and she saw your picture there and said "there is my daddy". we miss you Cruzito, and we wish you were here,but I know that in heaven you are watching over us. I wrote several poems for you and I want to write one day a book too. those are big dreams, like the ones we just to have.
well, RIP and we are always continue to pray for you, I know you can hear all my prayers because I know so.
we love you and miss you,
Jessica your daughter and me Rosy

To my "big" brother; not a day goes by since your death that I don't think of you. you are in my daily prayers, I ask you for advice, sometimes I just remember all the late night talks we had when you came home after mids. I miss not having you around to see the mildstones my children go through and how much they would love to share them with you. You were such a possitive influence on them and me. I havn't posted anything here because I didn't have the strength too. I just wanted to say how proud I am to be your brother and I will feel thet way until we see each other again and I can tell you that myself. Love you bro and miss you.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the third anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

I pray for solace for all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace. Thanks to your family and friends for sharing their memories and devotion to you through their reflections.

Rest In Peace.

Cruz, you were truly a great friend to both Art and me. Thank you for always being there for us; especially for Art. He loved working with you. We miss you so much, but we know you're in a better place and that we will all be together again one day. Until then, our wonderful memories of our friendship and all our good times will keep our hearts from breaking completely. God bless you!

Brother, I'm sure the Lord has you cutting sign for many a lost soul. You left us much too soon; we had so many B-ball games to play, boys to catch, meat to burn and beer to drink. Your presence has been deeply missed. I look forward to seeing you in the monte in the sky.

God bless you and keep you and your family.

Cruz always had a hearty handshake and smile whenever I would run in to him around town. From the local dance hall to the firing range, I don't remember seeing him upset. He always inquired as to how I was doing on the team or at work, and always left me with a stay safe and keep up the fire arms practice saying. Cruz was one of the good guys, from spending time at their ranch to helping out a brother agent hit that elusive target, I will never forget him. Rest in peace brother.
