I’ve worked a couple of jobs in my past and I have never felt more loved and appreciated as I have been working here at Avanzar for the last four years. I am grateful for everything. I really appreciate everything from the staff calling me, to the highest management of Berto. From my family to y’all, we are grateful for everything and I understand that all you have done is from y’all hearts to us, it’s not required by anyone, it is a gift of love and respect and honor. I would hope all other team members would agree when I say once again it’s a giving from the heart, not requirement, thanks again and blessings to all of y’all .. Avanzar strong 🤛... thank you , Alvin Duque
