On Wednesday, July 13, 2022, I lost my husband, love & best friend Joel Carrasco Molina. We thrived together for over 40 years through the good, the bad & sometimes ugly. This monstrous disease ALS, took everything from us My heart is split in two. One side filled with memories, the other died with you. You are now with Christ Jesus where you suffer no more. You are now resting in peace forevermore. Love your wife, Elsie T Molina (mom or mama).
