Talavera Mayor Nerivi Martinez honors the good heart of an ordinary citizen turned friend
Talavera Mayor Nerivi Santos Martinez was recently widowed. But even though her husband Martin passed away, the mayor continues to serve her constituents and from time to time, honor ordinary citizens dear to her. In her Facebook account, she introduced to her friends and followers Tatay Alwin from Santo Domingo.
She met Tatay Alwin by accident. After her husband’s wake, she was looking for a picture frame because she wanted a petal that fell from her husband’s flowers to be framed. The mayor shared that one night, she was asking Marvin in his casket if he was happy. She asked for a sign and right at that time, her friend Diorella Santos pointed to a petal that fell to her feet.
There was no open bookstore which eventually led her to Tatay Alwin. He immediately made a frame and did not ask for payment. He was simply happy that he was able to be part of a meaningful memory of the mayor’s late husband. From then on, they became friends.
Tatay Alwin recently donated face masks to frontliners in Talavera. He also gave Mayor Martinez a new gift.
