    Carlos was not only my 1st cousin, but he was also a brother in Christ. He was one of the most transparent and authentic Christians I have known. I could share my heart with him and he with me. More recently he would say "I'm praying to the Lord that He will save our country," a prayer we Christians should all we praying. When we closed our conversations, Carlos would say,"If I don't see you before, I'll meet you around the Throne. I love you" to which I would echo the same. COME LORD JESUS. The best is yet to be.
