Carlos I am glad I had the opportunity to know you. our conversations,the long walks, ice cream runs and the quit time to reflect around us. Watching the stars and listening to music especially ZZ TOP I still think back to those times when I hear the band. you were considerate, thoughtless, and a good listener. I remember when we meet we talked about different things but the one thing you was concerned about was growing old and being alone, you will never be alone you will always have your friends and family. my friend you are surrounded by many of my special friends now. I have not had the opportunity to sit and have talks in awhile and just catch up but I will always remember the time we did get to share. Carlos you will be missed and always be remembered. God Bless your family and prayers go out to them for their loss. Our paths will meet again.
