I too, Definitely appreciate the sentiment in what was sent. However, I do not believe that we should write anything in Carlos name, as if he had written it.
Carlos was a Very Kind person, so Very Gifted in computer knowledge and know-how, and helped so many of us. This is evidenced by how we are still passing around is so Very Helpful information. All of it is Definitely Carlos' gift to us, and I know that all of us Treasure that information.
We also Treasure our many memories of and with him, which will forever be in our hearts.
I have to say something about the author of the letter. I am not sure who wrote the original letter way back when. However, I do know that this same letter was sent to me after my Mom passed away on December 19th of 2011. I can tell you that it really helped me through Christmas that year.
There is only one other thing that I would like to say. Because we Treasure Carlos So Much, as a person and as a helper, we need to Honor him and let him truly (Rest in Peace).
Take care, Everyone, and let us, as I will, keep remembering Carlos with Joy.
Blessings and All the Very Best,

I appreciated the sentiment and am in awe of anyone who can write structured verse poetry. It's a talent I always wish I had. Still I couldn't help but wonder how his family and loved ones would feel reading something penned in his name. Further he wasn't one to speak of his personal views on things spiritual on lists his own or others which is why it took me aback a bit to read something of this nature ascribed to him.
I mean no disrespect or to detract still it does cause me some concern for the reasons stated above.
Take good care.

Subject: [TechTalk] A Letter From Carlos To All!
Well here it is Christmas once again, and Carlos just sent this so I could share it with you all. I copied and pasted it below.
Hi To All!
I see the countless Christmas Trees around the world below,
with tiny lights, like heaven's stars, reflecting on the snow.
The sight is so spectacular, please wipe away that tear,
for I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear,
but the sounds of music can't compare with the Christmas choir up here.
I have no words to tell you, the joy their voices bring,
for it is beyond description, to hear the angels sing.
I know how much you miss me. I see the pain inside your heart,
but I am not so far away. We really aren't apart.
So be happy for me dear ones. You all know I hold you dear,
and be glad I'm spending Christmas, with Jesus Christ this year.
I send you each a special gift, from my heavenly home above.
I send you each a memory of, of my undying love.
After all "Love" is the gift, more precious than pure gold.
It was always most import in the stories Jesus told.
Please love and keep each other, as my Father said to do,
for I can't count the blessing or love he has for each of you.
So, have a Merry Christmas and wipe away that tear.
Remember, I'm spending Christmas, with Jesus Christ this year.
Peace Be With You.
