"Brenda and Family... I am so sorry to hear to the passing of Carlos, he was a wonderful man. I can remember those summer days at Grandpa Jims when he would be out mowing and tending to the yard. Also during the Christmas season when you all would graciously allow my grandpa to spill his Christmas decoration over into your yard. Miss those days! Hope that you can find peace and comfort during this difficult time! "
