"How shocked to learn of Carlos's passing. I was a frequent client of Cabrales Auto shop for many years and no matter what, Carlos always made sure you were satisfied of the work done to your vehicle. A really honest, trusting, sincere and a good man. Many would go to him to have their vehicle worked on only because of the person he was. Truly will be missed. My sincerest condolences to his wife and children. Carlos,rest with the Angels in God's Glory!"
