Carlos has been my dear friend since 1957 when we both worked in the transportation industry in Yokohama, Japan. We met again in Honolulu, Hawaii where we had both moved to in 1965.
Carlos's favorite Hawaiian song was "Ke Kali Nei Au", the Hawaiian Wedding Song. Whenever we went listening to Hawaiian music Carlos was quick to request the band to play it, coaxing my wife JoFay to get up on stage and sing it to him.
In his autumn years he once again visited Hawaii with his wife Alba. Carlos repeatedly told me that he was most appreciative of Alba's unconditional love and tender care.
God has now welcomed Carlos into the Kingdom of Heaven

I know that you are with the Lord. I do miss you so much. Your smile, kindness, cheerfulness and love for others.
You will always be in my heart.
For God loves the people of this world so much, that He gave his one and only Son , so that whoever believes in him will have eternal life and never really die.
God did not send his Son into the world to condem its people. He sent him to save them.
