Dear Darlene and Family,

I was saddened to hear and read about the tragic death of Carlos.
I remember Carlos as a man with a great love for family, an incredible work ethic, and talented and creative in the area of construction. He was always insightful in conversation. I strongly suspect that you, the girls (Cynthia, Bonnie, and Linda), and their families will be sustained and nourished be many wonderful and sustaining memories. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the family in this most difficult of moments.
God bless.

Carlitos, more than a cousin, you are my brother. You taught me so much as kids. But most of all you shared your wonderful world with me. I hated when I couldn't go places with you as kids. And you would tell me to kiss you near your ear and a tiny version of me would ride in your ear and I would be able to see and hear everything. I believed you and believed in you. You will live in my heart ALWAYS.
