VICTORIA, Texas – On Wednesday, Dec. 8, a previous VRRC elderly resident named Maria San Miguel at the Twin Pines nursing home is having a birthday party to celebrate this lifelong accomplishment. Carla Buckner, business and marketing employee at the nursing home said prior to the birthday party plans she constantly told San Miguel about celebrating this special day with her family, friends, and other invited guests.

According to Buckner the state has loosened social distancing restrictions making it possible to have this celebration in person for San Miguel. As a result the birthday party will take place at 3301 East Mockingbird Lane at 3:00 p.m. for San Miguel’s family, friends, and invited guests to attend.

In an interview Buckner admitted that she often says the phrase “Love conquers all.”

During her spare time, Buckner enjoys helping others as she volunteers for a local non-profit organization called Meals on Wheels. She even recalls helping the San Miguel family a couple of years ago, going to San Antonio and bringing her home so San Miguel may live closer to them.
