Everytime I saw Carlos he always had a HUGE smile on his face and greeted me like family. I experienced first hand the pride and love that he had for his family. I saw also and still see the love his family has for him. He will be missed, but a little bit of Carlos will live on in our hearts.

One last thing..... Whoever the current bean bag champ in heaven is. They better watch out.
