To Ernestine and family, wishing God' s love grace and mercy upon your family at this time. I will continue to keep you lifted up and pray for you from one mom to another. God is still in control and He loves you and He hears your voice. I'm sure God is welcoming his good and faithful servant! Just reading the encouragement and support of Carmen's friends let me know that she DID let her 'light shine, so that others may see Him in her" and that is exactly what we are tasked to do here on earth. Just know that - "because He lives - you can face tomorrow, because He lives all fear is gone, because you know who holds the future and life is worth the living just because He lives! That's the good news!! Your step cousin, Jewel

Carmen, we had so many memories and I just miss you. I had just spoken to you the day before and woke up to call you but you were gone. I know God has purpose in everything but I was not ready to lose you. Heaven truly gained an angel. It was an honor to know you and call you my sister, my friend. I promise to keep doing great things and giving back in your honor. I am planting your honeysuckle tree in the back yard. I look forward to seeing you in Heaven. Love you

My friend Carmen. I am still at a loss for words. Would have never thought that our last talk earlier this year would have been our last. We met at Jim Hill in the IB program, became band mates, and class of 96' graduates. You were always full of smiles and positive words. We know God does not makes mistake but it still hurts all the same. Your were a blessing to all who paths you came across. Condolences to your family, our Jim Hill High family, and friends. May your light and the works you have done speak for you. Love You Carmen.

To Carmen's family,
Carmen was a beautiful person with a big heart, a great spirit and an infectious smile. We were Pioneers, Women of AT&T and The NETwork members together at AT&T for years. We supported each other's dreams. We donated & volunteered, laughed & cried, worked & partied. Carmen is definitely, gone too son. She was a joy to be around. She was more than a co-worker, she was my sister-friend and I loved her and I'll miss her dearly. I will cherish my books that she autographed for ever. I was looking forward to the new book to come out this December as we had just discussed a new book signing. You all are in my prayers. I pray that God's loving arms wrap around you and comfort you like only He can.
~Matthew 5:4 - "Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted".

Carmen, my sister/friend. We clicked from day one as authors and we became great friends. We pushed each other and supported each other tremendously. My favorite thing to tell you was the world was drawn to you. You were always kind to everyone and helpful to anyone in need. You were my friend, fellow author and my publisher. Thank you for being my Sister/Friend and a beautiful person inside and out. There are not enough words to write of your heart. Until we meet again.

The short time knowing you here at AT&T was very impacting on several levels; positively, professionally, and spiritually. At each level you inspired through your work ethic and morale fortitude. Thank you for inspiring in an excellent manor that further displayed your inner beauty. Rest well and may the peace of God rest with your family and friends during this time of bereavement forward.

Carmen was and always will be an inspiration. She was as true a friend as you could ever hope for, you know, the kind that tells you what you need to hear rather than what you want to hear. . .the kind that has your back and lifts you up . . believes in you when you won't or can't believe in yourself. . Our time together in Houston, while brief, was impactful and triumphant. I learned so much from her and strived to lift her up in the same way she lifted me, to be the type of kind, loving, and genuine person Carmen was. My heart breaks for her all those whose life she touched and I weep for her family and mourn the loss of one of God's brightest lights. To her family and close friends, my deepest and most heartfelt condolences to you.

Carmen, we met at AT&T and were involved in several Employee Resource Group and hit it off right away and started networking and volunteering at events at work and outside of work. I will always remember that sweet baby voice & huge smile and how you had to bend down to always take selfies with me. My sincere heartfelt sympathy to your mother and your entire family during this time. Rest Easy Angel

Carmens legacy will continue to shine theough her writings, podcasts, and Carmenisms.
