Carmen M. Santiago loved her family, enjoyed crocheting, and loved to read the bible. She struggled with renal failure and had such a fight for life. She inspired all who were around her to be humble, love God, and to be kind to others. When she would go for dialysis, she would try to help others stay warm, by covering them with blankets, placing gloves on their hands, or providing them with socks. At times she would give them ice chips if they needed. She had genuine conversations and gave them comfort, while they were in dialysis. She encouraged them to keep fighting for the little life they had remaining. She was courageous and was an impact to others. We can all see why she was loved by so many and will be deeply missed.
All donations will go towards Carmen's funeral expenses, as we struggle to come up with finances. We would greatly appreciate any donations. We would like to give her the best funeral that a wonderful mother, grandmother and wife deserve.
Donation time period will end March 13, 2019 as it comes to close with the funeral service. The Santiago family will oversee final expenses.
