Hi Rita, I went to the Facebook page and looked at all the photos. Great memories. I never knew that you were a Pedro Pan child. I remember there were very few of us Cubans in our class, but I guess in those days, we didn't discuss those issues. I saw the photo of Tommy Fletcher and it broke my heart. When I moved to NY in 1975, Tommy and I became really good friends, so when he passed away it really affected me. I went to see him when he was sick. Anyway I don't want to get maudlin, this is a happy time to have reconnected after all these years.

Rita, mi rama Echandi es originaria de Oronoz-Mugaire, en el Valle del Baztán, Navarra. Mi padre y abuelo eran originalmente de Santiago de Cuba, aunque yo nací ya en La Habana. Elena Echandi, quien te contacto hace unos años, es una prima. Te contacto desde Rusia porque allá fue a parar trabajando, ella hizo un trabajo bonito de nuestro arbol familiar y por eso contactó a todos los Echandi que pudo mientras contruia el arbol Echandi nuetro.
