“For My Hamstra Family:
Gabriel and Andres have been working so hard all morning. They bring their caring hearts and goodness to each task. They work in the hot morning sun on the air conditioner and in the garage to exchange old machines for new. The poet in me would say that they tend their “garden.” They take time to explain what they are doing and they take pride in their beautiful work.
These two amazing human beings deserve every accolade I can write. I want to take a moment to acknowledge such hard, hard work. I have been with your company for approximately twenty years, and in that time, I have only known compassionate, hard working, and gentle souls who work for Hamstra. There is no mystery. Your company has a heart. In a world that is often unkind, your workers like Gabriel and Andres take pride in their beautiful work.
They deserve every accolade that I can offer. From your gentle, artist Lisa to the compassionate heart of John Roelle, to these two fine, hard working human beings, Andres and Gabriel, I am profoundly blessed to be a part of the Hamstra Family over all these years. In a world that has often gone mad with unconscionable war and governments that can not work together, there is hope when two young men, Gabriel and Andres work so hard & take pride in their beautiful work. The earth is blessed.
While I am writing this, they are still hard at work. They are the future and they give me hope. We are all blessed. So, on this day breaking, thank you once again to all the Hamstra Family. You touch all our lives with your goodness and hearts that are wider than the world is wide. I know you will share this letter with them. They deserve to be praised. Their goodness makes me hopeful for the future.
They are still working! Please take time, as you always do, to acknowledge Gabriel and Andres.”
