    Carlos was another older brother to me when I was maybe 9 or 10 years old (my oldest brother and I are 6 years apart and Carlos was older then him). One memory of Carlos is when the church went ice skating, I couldn’t do it without help so, like the kind older brother he was, he held this little annoying girls hand to help her not fall. He didn’t have to but, it’s the kind of person Carlos has always been, generous, kind, positive and encouraging. His sincere influence has forever changed the world! My condolences to you all, prayers and loves are sent your way.
