Hola Mary Que gusto que seas la primera en contestarme, el Santiesteban is por mi esposo, su familia es de Holguin y no reconocio ninguno de los nombres que me distes, que pena, pues Santiesteban no son muchos, mi apellido de soltera era Nodar. Carinos y abrazos. Olga Maria

Hola, Mari: Has puesto la foto perfecta para St. Patty's Day y te ves magnífica. Tu foto con la muñeca está super tierna. Yo todavia no me he metido a escanear en el nuevo aparato que compré especificamente para poner mis fotos viejas aquí. Voy a tener que embullarme contigo. Me alegro de verte volver a poner tus tremendas fotos y que hayas puesto dos de tus pinturas. Un abrazo, yoli

Hola Maria, Veo que en tu historia mencionas que tu padre trabajo en Osceola Farms hasta el 1976. Yo fui ingeniero alli en 1973-1976. Como se llamaba tu padre y en que area trabajaba? Yo estoy seguro que tuve algo que ver con el en ese tiempo. Un fuerte saludo, Frank Corral

Dear Maria thank-you for your story.and the sweet comments on mine. I'm new to this site but the stories and emotions they evoke have been sleeping for so long in the cold. Their sudden awakening has been enlightening to say the least. Also, the love and the tenderness of the words in all the comments are uniquely Cuban, and remind me of my mother who passed away and others that I have grown distant from. I'm glad you found painting, who is your favorite? Mine is the 'Prince of Painters,' Velazquez. Again thanks for the thoughts and maybe someday we will all meet. Enrique Flores-Galbis
