Many years ago, three young boys were working hard in the fields to help their families get by. As young men, they would eventually help each other build up a successful dry-cleaning business in East Austin. Although my Grandpa Estrada started the business in the late 1950s, he could not have done it without the support of his extended family. Two men in particular, his brothers-in-law, Lolo and Baldo Maldonado, would break their backs pressing clothes in the sweltering 100 degree heat while my Grandpa went between the dry cleaning machines and the front to help customers for over 50 years. Today, our family lost one of those great men, my Tio Baldemar "Baldo" Maldonado. Tio Baldo enjoyed life, worked hard and loved his wife and huge family. Tio, you were one of a kind. Thank you for everything you did for our family and for always being a great brother-in-law to my Grandpa and a great big brother to my Grandma Hilda. RIP Tio. #tiobaldo
