I liberated the picture above from my sister-in-law's Facebook page and I thought it'd be a great idea to publish it here. In the picture are my brother Jose Anthony Rodriguez aka Boe, Kathy, Nellie and Tony, Jr.
Boe and Kathy have been married for more than 15 years but they have been a couple for over 20 years. My niece, Nellie recently celebrated her 21st birthday at a casino where she consumed alcohol and bet on the slot machines with her mom.
Tony, Jr. plays little league baseball and like his dad, he enjoys watching and participation in sports. I think his baseball team won a championship or they came close a couple years ago.
Boe and Kathy have worked very hard to maintain their family. At one point, they both held two jobs just to make ends meet. I'm very proud of my brother and Kathy.
Maybe one day I'll change my life and have a family of my own.
