Carmen was a dear friend to my family and me. We shared many fun memories of celebrating birthdays and enjoying meals out. Carmen was one of the most giving, generous, caring people I have known. She loved the Lord and always reminded me to "go with the Lord." I loved her smile, her laughter, and her positive attitude. I will miss her greatly.
