Carmen wanted to send her love to all her family and friends but was restricted by the COVID pandemic. It was important, to her, for everyone to know how much love she had for her family and friends. She was not given the opportunity to see everyone or given the time to tell each and every one of you that she loved you. Carmen is now in the graceful company of her creator and in the loving hands of her family and friends that have passed before her. She will always be in our hearts, our minds and standing beside us.
