Asi es la vida de nosotros los Pedropanes, un momento viviendo una vida tranquila y pacifica y de pronto escupiendo ojos. Pero eso me lo enseño nuestra amiga Yolanda que se lo dijo a alguien confidencialmente pero yo tengo conecciones para enterarme lo que pasa aqui. No se lo cuentes a nadie. Carmen

Jose Antonio...Gracias for tu interes en mi breve relato de mi experiencia. La realidad es que la historia de America esta repleta de cuentos similares a los nuestros. You simplemente tube la buena suerte de ser cuidado y querido por gente muy generosa. Tambien lei tu histora; cuando llegaste a Fla City ya yo estaba en Montana. Me alegro muchisimo leer que pudiste reunirte de nuevo con tu familia relativamente rapido. Espero que el futuro te obsequie todo lo que desees y que vivas en paz y felicidad por el resto de tus dias. Un fuerte abrazo de un nuevo hermano...Mario

Jose Antonio, como estas? veo que estubiste en Fla City yo estube ahi por muchos anos desde el 62 hasta que lo cerraron asi que tenemos que conosernos. Ahora veo que eres Oriental igual que yo, pues yo soy Santiaguera y muy proud de ser de Santiago. Oye mira mis fotos y dime si me te acuerdas de mi, Saludos de otra hermanita mas de PP, Silvia Budejen

Jose, these names sound familiar!! And no one to ask... Mami seemed to know everyone in Holguin. I imagine it was a pretty small town when she grew up there. When she married my dad she moved to Havana.

I read your story and see your grandparents were from Santiago. My father was born there his name was Fernando Monfort Soberats. I case someone in your family recognizes the name....

Hello Jose Antonio. What a small world!!! I am happy you found me through a message to another Pedro Pan. Yes, that is where the store was and that is the church I went to. Did you know my cousins, Betico, Yayo and Xiomara? Their home was across the street from the store. My maternal grandmother lived on Aricochea 12. I looked at the pictures you posted. I know that bench by the two story building in Fla. City. If I remember well, that is where the vending machine was. I visited the camp about 5-7 years ago, (cannot remember), and drove through the entire complex. Looks just like it did 47 years ago...Even the vending machine is there. Thanks for writing back to me. Niurka

Sorry, forgot to tell you to feel free to call me Yolie That's what my Cuban friends still call me.

My grandparents on my mother's side were from Holguin. Their names were Lalo Miranda and Maria Fox. They had eight children and I was one of their many grandchildren. Other grandchildren were Marly Rodriguez Miranda, Eddy Rodriguez Miranda, Eduardito and Ana Maria Miranda, Aldo and Luisin Miranda. Because I was born and raised in Havana I did not get to see them often. Perhaps only four or five times in my fourteen years in Cuba. My mother's name was Yolanda Miranda Fox. I think my grandfather had a store in town- maybe a fabric store? Not sure. So now you have two writers here! Surely that will help our story to be told. Yolanda is wonderful and obviously a very good writer. Thank you for bringing us togehter.
