Brigas’s boss, Rudy Quinones, knew Albert was eager to retire and wanted to help his dedicated employee reach that goal faster, so he wrote him a check for $5,000 to pay off the remainder of his mortgage.

“To give them something they’ve been yearning for their whole lives–it’s incredible,” Quinones told the news outlet.
