With Sadness

forwardjeh_2450 carlos_and_the_wave_3

We learned some very sad news last night. A very active ambassador for We Are Water, Carlos Fonseca, passed away in a diving accident near our home in Florida. Carlos was a motivator, inspiring people to get involved in diving and make changes in their lives to protect our water environment. His young daughter is already an elite athlete, competing in springboard diving and other watersports. He proudly shared her successes with friends on Facebook while he watched her competitions and practices with his wife Anabela. Carlos had a way of sweeping people up in his enthusiasm and making them a part of his family. Robert and I count him as a dear friend and will always remember a special time in Tobermory when we dived together filming We Are Water. Our deepest sympathies go out to his entire extended  family.

    I am so sadden by this incident as he was one of my best friend in High School. I was very shocked and heart broken when the sad news broke and I can’t image this would ever happen to someone so young and especially someone I was very close with. I missed our times together and the best memories of Carlos will always be with me. He will always be my Carlos at heart! RIP brother, I miss you!
