Mr. Salinas worked at John Deere Company as a heavy machinery operator.  He was the first employee at Uniroyal Proving Grounds until the company closed.  He was a test driver and tire analyst.  Mr. Salinas was the President of the Local United Rubber Workers and later worked for the Webb County Restitution Center as an instructor.

Porque pierdes el trabajo

no te sientas derrotado

si el futuro lo ves negro con desilusión

aguántate y piensa de una nueva ambición

 

Si crees que estas viejo

y nadie te dará trabajo

descuida, estudia una nueva profesión

y ya verás el futuro con clara distinción

 

Acuérdate que ya no vas a estar

atado a la misma rutina de siempre

que el futuro se habre de repente

pues no te sientas triste y lánzate a un nuevo porvenir

 

Reúnete, organízate

planea para el futuro cuidadosamente

hay muchas oportunidades en el presente

de trabajo con buena gente

 

Con fe y ayuda de Dios todo es posible

pues vamos a darle ganas y energía

a la nueva meta, que en el camino de la vida nos espera

 

Se me viene a la mente

de todos los años transcurridos

de las penas y sufrimientos ocurridos

pero también de los buenos tiempos recibidos

 

Con las bendiciones que Dios nos dio

al permitirnos un buen trabajo

no me queda otra

que decirles a los compañeros buena suerte,

vayan con Dios y yo los espero en otro trabajo

Unable to attend Mario's wake and funeral. My deepest condolences to his family. Mario and I spent many years together working at Uniroyal, and it was very sad for me to learn he had passed away. We were good friends and will keep his name in my prayers. May he rest in peace.

Sentimos mucho la perdida de su ser querido por eso queremos compartir con ustedes el consuelo que Dios nos da mediante las escrituras. Por ejemplo Dios nos promete eliminar la muerte, en Revelación o Apocalipsis 21:4 dice que "Dios limpiara toda lágrima de los ojos y la muerte no será mas, ni existirá ya mas lamento ni clamor ni dolor". Hechos 24:15 dice que "va ha haber una resurrección". Entonces podemos tener la seguridad de que nuestro creador Jehova Dios acabará con toda la maldad y el sufrimiento, esto incluye el odio, las guerras, el fraude, el delito, las enfermedades y con la muerte. Además nos dice que tiene el deseo de devolverles la vida de nuestros seres queridos que hayan muerto.
