I was so sorry to hear of Carmens passing. I have many good memorys of him from my early childhood as a softspoken gentle man who took the time to notice and respond to a child in an adult world. He was always kind to me and I considered him my friend in later years as I grew up. I had not seen or talked to him in many years, that was my loss. I will think of him with a warm heart and a warm smile.

So sorry to hear of your loss. Carmen was a very interesting man with fascinating stories from far away places and of the Good 'Ole Days. He will be greatly missed.
