Wow, I am so sorry to hear of this. Mr. Salmons was one of the most genuine people that I had the pleasure of meeting through Ryan. He would always take time to talk and was so very personal. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Salmons family!!

This comes as a HUGE shock. I am so very very sorry. Carlos was a is Margaret..of my youth. He was so funny and honest. He was honest, devoted, loving and a awesome example of Godliness to his boys/family. When we sat together at Ryan's viewing...He said to me..."it should have been me". We cried and I said, "no, because your family needs their pillar and strength".

I am so very sorry to hear this, but I know that he is in Heaven. I love you, Margaret, Brad, Barry and Amy.

Life is too short.

Al and I want you to know how sorry we were to hear of Carlos passing. We will keep your family in our thoughts and prayers. We consider meeting at NCH a true blessing and will cherish the memories we have of Carlos, Margaret, Ryan and the rest of the Salmon family. Once again we are reminded of how short life really is and no one is promised tomorrow!
