Just a few days ago she was active on facebook and asking about what to tell her daughter, I hope she still got the chance to cuddle her little girl.
So unfair, so sad, so very very scary.

Wishing her family all the strength to learn to cope with her loss.

As I'm a new member here, I didn't know,Carmen. From reading the comments, it very obvious that Carmen was very much loved as a person ,and as a valued member of the group. May I just add my deepest condolences to her extended family and friends.
Let your new journey begin, Carmen. God rest you, and may you hence forth and be a messenger between us and our higher power. Rest in peace.
