Pedro, your dad was one of the finest moving van operators that Central ever had.
He also did a fine job of training you to follow in his footsteps. I'm thankful to have
the opportunity to work with both of you for many years.
BS will be missed ...they don't make many like him anymore !

It has been said that the best dads get promoted to grandpas. Grandfathers are good listeners, good storytellers, and most importantly, good friends. They are always there to laugh and play with their grandkids and even console them when necessary. Grandfathers are also often the source of sage advice, a benefit of their many years of experience. One thing is for sure, the love of a grandfather is a unique treasure that is never forgotten by their grandchildren. The times spent with a grandfather turn into precious memories that are conserved in the heart, even long after they have passed.
