On Saturday, we drove to Odem, Texas to celebrate our Brother, Jesse’s retirement. After 41 years of working at Holt Caterpillar, he is ready to move on to the next chapter in his life. Last year, he was presented with a Pioneer Award as he was one of several employees to start with this company. He is very proud of this company and of all that he learned there. We on the other hand, are so proud of our only brother. You are the very best, Brother. Love you very much!
Here are a few pictures of the event. My Brother, Jesse and his Wife, Berta.

There was so much food here. It was all delicious. There were also several desserts and it was all great!
It was good to see Mark Martinez. He tells us he already misses my brother. They are very close friends!
People inside and outside the house. We all had so much fun and it was so good seeing everyone.

Two Loves of My Life!
My niece, Eliza set the timer on her phone and took our picture. All family and friends having a great time.
Manuel and the girls were to drive back to San Antonio but he was talked into letting them stay with us. We stayed at the Corpus Christi Naval Air Station. We made a quick stop at Walmart for night clothes and were set. Also picked up some table games and had a great night! Corina brought Quincy with her so he came to visit us in the room. Ari found the perfect night shirt.
A big Thank You to Alma & Raul for the hospitality. The party was great! Love you all a bunch!
