In Volume Two/1978 in The Texaco Marketer Magazine a section called "Earning Their Trust", a woman submitted a small paragraph praising Laddie and his Texaco Station. ….."I just wanted to write a word of praise to you about Laddie B. Benes' Texaco station in Port Lavaca, Tex. He is always courteous and helpful. He washes the windshield and checks under the hood and the tires without being asked. And he tells you if he sees anything wrong, which really means a lot to a woman. I think you should be proud to have him for a 'Texaco man.'"
