I offer my heartfelt and sincere condolences to the Medina Family. I knew Carlos back in college in the 1980's and although I have not talked to him in over 35 years, but reading his obit​u​ar​y, he sounds like the considerate person that I remember from college. I will continue to lift your family up in prayer!
