Dear Carmen:

There are no words to describe how much we miss you! You will continue to forever be in our hearts. You bought light into this world and made it a better place. Your talent and energy radiated when you performed and the joy of music that you blessed us with! We have faith and believe that God has a reason and purpose for all things and even though you were taken way too soon that the memories that you left behind will always be with us. You made us better, as a group and as people. You showed us your "Never Quit, Never Cancel" attitude and your professionalism to always improve. You blessed us with your love, affection, friendship, and loyalty. To some you were Carmen, to some you were friend, but to Grupo Ritmo Son, you were family! We love you and will always keep you near our hearts.

Forever: Carmen "MASTICA Mercado"

From: Nene, Hector, Sammy, Luigi, Ernesto, y Emmanuel
