Titi Carmen how I miss you so. But I'm so glad to know that your are now at Peace celebrating and rejoicing with Mama, Papa, Tio Luis.and Tia Ramona. and that you are no longer in Pain and suffering.. I always loved coming to your house visit you and Tio Garcia, Teddy and Evelyn I remember when at the age of 11 I surpised you and showed up at the house. I took the train all the way from Queens all by myself. That's how much I missed my family. You are now in the Presence of the Almighty and rejoicing with the Lord. I will always cherish your memories. I Love You Titi. Until we meet again. Your Nephew Nelson Elias Jr.

Carmen was an amazing mother-in-law to me. She welcomed me into the family with open arms over 35 years ago. She was like a second mom to me and taught me so many things that helped me as a wife, mom and now grandma. She was so loving and always wanted everyone to be happy. We enjoyed going on family vacations to Disney together. It was a joy to see her smile! She loved family gatherings, especially when my husband Teddy would make her laugh with his shenanigans and impersonations. She loved music 🎵! I always enjoyed seeing her face light up when her favorite songs were played.

We are going to miss her very much! I’ve shared with my children the best way to remember grandma is to live a good and happy life! Smile often, love deeply and treasure every moment with your family.

As a Christian, I know she is rejoicing in heaven with our Lord! I envision my grandmother Alicia, and so many others welcoming her with love. I can see them ready to play bingo! Con mucho amor 💕 tu yerna, Vicky

From Diana, David & Kalmonie and baby Sophia

Abuela Carmen was loving and caring. When we’d visit her, she would give us really big hugs and made our favorite foods like chicken, rice and platanos. She also enjoyed visiting us in Virginia. One year, Abuela Carmen and Abuelo Garcia joined a family tradition and made pasteles with us. Another year, she came during Christmas and we had so much fun singing karaoke and laughing! We are so thankful that we were able to share birthdays, holidays and important times like graduations and engagement festivities with her.

We know that Abuela prayed for us and that she loved God. We are really going to miss Abuela. We know that she is in heaven with God, is no longer in pain and will be happy for eternity. We love you abuela! 💗
