I knew Carlos and Celia my whole life. Celia was my grandma Gwen Allens best friend for as long as I can remember. I have some fond memories of Carlos. When I went to church with Grandma he would always have candy for us kids and always gave the best hugs. When I was in high school I went to their house and helped teach him how to use his new computer and loaded some software onto the computer. When I graduated high school he filmed my graduation for me. I will always have a soft spot for Carlos and Celia. Rest easy in Heaven.
