We never had the pleasure of meeting Carolyn which is our loss but we met Albert and Karl through my sister Tina Mason. Albert and Karl are two of the kindest humans on earth and we are positive Albert learned to share life from Carolyn. Rest in Peace and God give the family the strength to carry on until we meet again. Randy & Angelina Lovato
