Our condolences to Jessica and the Bedolla families. Sending prayers🙏 to all and may you find strength and faith as Carlos strongest gift to all.
Jeanie and I will miss going to church and have Carlos and Jessica sit next to us. After Sunday Mass we would go to breakfast with other friends. We called ourselves the Breakfast Bunch.
Our talks were simple but close to the heart. He often told me how much he loved his family.
Jeanie and I were fortunate to visit him and Jessica. Carlos would pull vegetables from his garden and fresh lemons from trees for us. His son Paul BBQ dinner for all of us.
Jeanie and I visited with Jessica and Carlos at their home not to long ago. We will never forget this🙏.
Paul and Jeanie
