The first day I worked at the Pinon household, Carlos sat down at the kitchen table and asked me to join him. Then he asked me a math question. He was so tickled when I was able to use a pen and paper and figure out the answer. When I drove Carlos around the neighborhood, it seemed like everyone knew him. He loved getting a chocolate shake at McDonalds and the employees there always gave him special attention. He was really a people person and loved laughing and spending time with people. He was also eager to help me with projects or to get me enlisted on a project he had thought up. He really enjoyed getting things done and feeling like we had worked together as a team. He was very proud of the work he and Nito had done on the house and liked telling me stories of many events throughout his life. Even at his age, he often told me about plans he had for the future--things he wanted to get done on the house or places he wanted to visit. When I left at the end of my shift, he always insisted on giving me a blessing. I am so sorry Maria, Angie and Nito for your lost. With both parents gone, a new stage of life begins. My prayers go with you as you begin this journey. However, I know your parents well equipped you for life with great work ethics and love of family and faith in God. Sincerely, Nancy

I wanted to add my condolences to Mr. Pinon's family and friends. Sadly, the sting of pain that death leaves is something all too common for mankind. However, the Bible speaks of a time when we won't have to worry about or even know this pain. In Isaiah 25:8, the Bible says God will "swallow up death forever" and "wipe away tears from all faces." How wonderful this future will be with our loved ones.
