Armando from Finca Santa Maria recently posted a Thank You to everyone through Jeff’s Facebook Page. We are re-posting it here for all to see:

From Armando:

“En nombre de mi esposa Magaly y mis hijos Valeria y Juan Pablo, muchas gracias a todas las personas y empresas que generosamente nos han dado la mano en esta situación difícil, Dios les compensará la bondad de sus corazones; que lindo saber que en el mundo existen personas tan maravillosas, aunque no hablemos el mismo idioma, los buenos sentimientos son universales. Personas como Ustedes son las que hacen que este mundo a pesar de las adversidades, sea diferente y grato para seguir adelante. Muchas gracias y que Dios los bendiga por siempre. Ajunto mi hijo Juan Pablo, agradeciéndoles a todos Ustedes.”

From Jeff and Maritza: Translating Armando’s message the best we can from Spanish to English,

“On behalf of my wife and my children Magaly, Valeria, and Juan Pablo, thank you very much to all the people and companies who have given generously hand in this difficult situation. God will compensate the goodness of their hearts, it’s nice to know that in the world there are such wonderful people, even if we don’t speak the same language, good feelings are universal. People like you are who make this world different and pleasing to proceed despite the adversity. Thank you very much and may God bless you forever. Below is my son Juan Pablo, thanking you all.”
