Dearest Gonzalez-Cannon Family, All my memories of Carlos are fun, funny, entertaining, teaching me Spanish expressions, and, of course, SOCCER scores and plays, especially Bolivian! He was so good with all the middle school kids and the soccer team, and he was unfailingly kind to me. I cherish his warm smile, his help with anything I needed and his friendship. I have all of you wrapped up in warm and loving thoughts and my prayers are that you know he will want you to be happy and at peace. All love, Kathleen

Dear Marianela and Family, I have so many wonderful memories of working with your Dad at Baker. He always had a twinkle in his eye as he worked with hundreds of Spanish students over the years. May he Rest In Peace.

Marianela y family, So sad to lose your father, especially in a time when you probably couldn't have been with him as much as possible. Hopefully his passing was peaceful and you have many cherished memories to lessen your sorrow. Remembering you fondly as I send my prayers and condolences to you and your family. Elisa

Mis más sentidas condolencias! No creo que haya palabras adecuadas de consuelo en estos momentos ante la partida de un ser tan querido, con el que compartieron momentos maravillosos, sin embargo el mayor consuelo es ese, el haber creado momentos inolvidables. Ahora se ha convertido en un ángel de luz cerca de Dios, desde donde los guiará y protégerá. Mi mayor fortaleza para toda la familia.
