Carlos Hernandez

You spent your youth helping your single mother raise your siblings & you became the father by who so many were inspired. You served the Marine Corps honorably yet you served the Church humbly. God knew you had earned your rest, so in our dreams & prayers we recall your best. You were a cheerful giver & today's gifts still come from you, riches that $$$ can't buy: responsibility, courage, humility, advice, forgiveness & that heartfelt laugh. We miss your friendship & look forward to seeing you again! Your loving family.
