Carlos always loved to work on his cars, would enjoy engineering anything and everything. He could make you head phone jack out of a pen cap and some electrical components.
He was everyone’s MacGyver, if you needed something fixed, he’d be the guy to get it done!

Rise up this mornin'
Smiled with the risin' sun
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true
Saying', ("This is my message to you")
Singing' "Don't worry 'bout a thing
:Cause every little thing gonna be alright."
Singing "Don't worry (don't worry) 'bout a thing
"Cause every little thing gonna be alright.
