    My condolences to the family. I know you miss her, and it hurts, but we are encouraged to look toward our hope in Jehovah, that we will see her again, young and healthy as she once was – and ready to take up whatever new assignment Jehovah will have for her!

    I didn’t know Carmen, but I knew her daughter, Annie. I imagine she was a lot like Annie & look forward to possibly meeting her at some time when all those sleeping are resurrected by Jesus.

    I cannot express how much I will miss Ms. Velez, and how fortunate I am to have been able to know her for these past 17 years. Whenever I saw her, she was always the brightest part of my day. I will never forget her smile, and her spirit.
