Juan Baldovinos speaks of his wife, Brenda, in the present tense. And why wouldn’t he? Her spirit can be felt throughout the business she established; in its walls, in this community, within the members of her family and the children – some of whom are now young adults she helped nurture.

It’s been about eight months since his wife’s unexpected passing of an aneurysm in February of this year, but it’s obvious that Juan finds solace speaking about his wife of so many years. Brenda, after all, was the woman who not only provided Juan with a family, but the person who fueled his dreams. The couple, it turns out, were a team, and Brenda was the team captain.
