Marylou, Matt, Kelli and girls, I was so sorry to hear the news. Carmen was such a caring, stable influence for me and so many of Matt's friends. I can only imagine how many of us he helped along the way. I often retell the story of when I was feeling sad and misunderstood and asked "Why is growing up so hard?" Carmen replied, "If it were easy, everyone would do it!" Thinking of you and all the cups of coffee we shared at 404. Take care of each other.
