Thumbs-Up, Thumbs-Down

Thumbs-Up, Thumbs-Down


Thumbs-up to Arnold Canales for being in business for almost 50 years on South Laurent Street. He greets everybody who enters his convenience store and thanks them. His wife keeps the store in good condition and watches over some of their “little angels/grandkids” raising them in the store, who may someday be managing the store. Their success has been “taking care of customers,” not “money” relations.

Thumbs-up to the Mozisek family, who showed Hannah what love and family is all about. My heart goes out to them for their loss. But we know where Hannah is today. God bless. Her story in the Advocate was a real blessing
