    I’m so sad I didn’t know you lived in the valley. My husband and I moved here last year. I would love to see my cousins. I have some fun memories of you Carmen. You were always outgoing and fun. I left for college shortly after you, Jennifer and Randy moved in with us after your mom passed away. I know it was a difficult time for your family, just as this is for your sweet family. My love and prayers go out to all who love and miss you

    Carmen, it was truly a pleasure to know you and work with you! Your dedication and hard work were an inspiration to all of us that shared responsibilities with you. I also enjoyed playing softball with you. Most important of all, you succeeded as a mother, teaching your children to have integrity, and to possess the same qualities of spirit and humanity as you have demonstrated. You were an angel on earth, and I love you dearly!
