I did not know Carmen well only for a few months. I took care of her for the last few months of her life. She was the sweetest lady anyone could ever meet. Her family was a very loving family. I will miss them all. Carmen you are gone but never forgotten. You will be missed.

My condolences to the Hernandez siblings at the sad, difficult loss of your beloved mother, Carmen! From the first moment that we the Cardona family meet her she was very sweet and friendly to us and I will always treasure this! We know that she loved and cared deeply about each one of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren so be strong and stay close to each other as this way her legacy will live on... through you! Family, please take comfort in knowing that you will always feel her presence around you especially at your time of need!
