Dear Limoneira Company,
My name is Elissa and I am 34 years old and I grew up on your ranch. Over the last few months my Mother, her siblings and some of my cousins have been working on moving my Grandparents out of their house, C-25. This took them months to do because my Grandparents lived in C-25 for over 40 years. My Grandparents came to Limoneria Ranch in 1954 or 55. They have lived there ever since. They are moving out of the house simply because it was time. Time for them to be taken care of and loved 24/7.
Limoneria Company has made a lot of changes since I lived there (bocce ball??) but one thing that I truly admire about your company is that long after my Grandfather retired, you allowed him to continue to live in the home they raised their children in. My Mom and Dad even met there because they were neighbors.
I don't know what your plans are with all the homes on the ranch. They have seen better days. I just need you to know that C-25 is not just walls and rooms to me and my family. This house is the backdrop to all of mine, my siblings, all my cousins, and my kids, happy memories. Easter egg hunts in the back yard, corn parties in the summer, Christmas Eve talent shows, and the last place I spoke to my cousin Roman before he passed away. I could show you thousands of photographs of this house, of happy faces and a very loving family. Pictures of me at 2 months old dressed up just like my 3 month old cousin Patricia, up to my 2 year old sitting on my Tata's lap under the big family portrait.
This house was home base for us. It was were we went to feel love and family. So I guess I just want to thank you. For giving my family a place to be together for over 40 years. It's the only place I have even known as "Nana & Tata's" house and it will always be the background to my childhood. I know that my family is not the only family who has had generations grow up on Limoneira Ranch. So thank you Limo, for caring about the people who work and who worked for you. You continue to be a business that cares for it's employees. This business philiosphy will guarantee that you continue to remain one of the best in the business.
And who knows, maybe bocce ball is the next soccer? (totally joking with you!)
with much love and gratitude,
Granddaughter of Joe and Ruth
