Cody & I always looked forward to seeing Carlos smiling face on Sunday morning. He was strong as an ox & had a smile larger then Texas. We will always cherish those moments together. What a blessing to know such an amazing man!

Brother Carlos. You are a great example of a Christ follower. You always tired to lead others to Jesus. You served Him well. We appreciated your friendship and invitations to Bible study and a great meal more than once. Ralph loved when you would drive all the way to North Waco to take him to coffee. Your love and respect to your wife and daughter were noticed always. We will see you there. We are honored to be your friends and family in Christ—Thank you

My memory of brother Carlos Martinez takes me way back when I was maybe 12-13. He was my Sunday school teacher and just about every Sunday he would take our class out to eat and then he would take us to the flea market he would evangelize to people while we gave out little booklets or flyers to invite as many people as we could to church. Those were some very good memories for me he was an awesome teacher. Very blessed to have known him. We don’t say goodbye, but we will see you soon again. My condolences and prayers go out to his wife Dolores Martinez and daughter and family.
