I have fond memories of going to Uncle Manuel's farm when I was a little girl. It was there where we played baseball, went on a truck ride to feed the cows, and at times eat dinner there. I went there with my family that consisted of my mom and dad, Belinda (my older sister), and Ernie (my younger brother). Of course, my grandpa was always with us. Manuel always had a smile. I'm so blessed to have such wonderful memories of visiting his farm. May the Lord grant you all strength with each passing day.
PS. Manuel, tell my grandpa "Howdy" for me. Tell him thanks for all the 7 up and cokes he always had for us. Thanks again for the special memories on your farm.

I am so happy that I got to visit the past few times while I was in Texas. My favorite childhood memories will be at Uncle Manuel's farm.
