I would like to extend my sincere condolences to the family of Carolina. Though I never met her, I know she was loved by her entire family. I am friends with Carol and Juan and Nick and Cecilia and they must reflect her loving demeanor. Carol is the most loving person I know. I just now heard of your mother's passing and would love to be there to hug you all and show my respect, but the service is just now starting as I am typing this note. May God shine his peace and mercy upon you during this time and may you all experience the Shalom (complete, nothing missing, nothing broken and the absolute absence of chaos) peace of God.
