Dear Friends,

Words cannot adequately describe how grateful I am to know and be loved by so many thoughtful and caring people. The Friends of Carlos Molina benefit held on December 7th truly moved me. I will never forget the feeling of joy and comfort that overcame me when I first walked into the room and saw a crowd of familiar smiling faces as happy to see me as I was to see them.

The fact that the girls on the Oceanside Express, with the help of their parents and the Oceanside United Soccer Club, took an idea and make it a successful reality speaks volumes of their character and makes me so proud to have coached them and have had an impact on their lives.

My family and I would like to thank the Oceanside Express, their parents, the Oceanside United Soccer Club, everyone who generously donated prizes for the raffles, the Oceanside Southside Firehouse for letting us use their room and everyone else in the Oceanside community who took time out of their schedules to put this memorable night together. I also personally want to thank all of my friends and family for their continued love and support. Your thoughts and prayers have made it significantly easier for me to get through this difficult time in my life.

I wish you all a happy and healthy New Year!

Carlos Molina
