Dear Maria, Candie Nancy and family, Once again I am truly sorry for your loss. Carlos was a great man and he will truly be sadly missed. I know how much he always loved soccer and watching Portugal play on television as well as Benfica. But still he will always be a loving and special husband to Maria and a wonderful father to Candie and Nancy and a family man to everyone who loved him. May God continue to bless him always as he eternally rests up in heaven and he's watching over you, and also May God Continue to bless you and your family "Always and forever".
