I came to work for Sue Escobedo in December of last year 2018. From the moment I first met her she always had a smile on her face. She loved talking about the wonders of creation by God, her children, and of course roland. When I asked what her name was she told me she didnt know, so I asked if I could call her "momma" she shrugged her shoulders and said "I guess". From then on I felt like she adopted me as a daughter. When I would leave I would give her a hug, and she would say "i love you". I felt very at home with sue and roland. At times it didnt feel like I was at work, but at home. Felishia, justin, and jr. Were always making me laugh, and showing me that you dont have to be blood related to be family. I feel like jehovah God led me to sue, roland, and the rest of the escobedo's. And from them I learned many lessons of love, and life! All I can say is thank you very much!
