Elly, (my dear roommate from Florida City) You left us so sudenly without a goodbye. It is conforting to write to you through this database to at least tell you how much you meant to me. You were an inspiration to all of us. Much love, Marta

To all Pedro Pans on the Database: We wanted to let you know of a special discovery on this database. The late Elly Chovel, who was instrumental in spreading the word about your exodus, had never found her name in the Airport Log, where all these names appear, thanks to Jorge Guarch. This week, the log uncovered Elly's name. There is was: Elisa de la C. Vilano Ojeda. She had been listed as arriving on June 6, 1962, not her actual arrival date of Feb. 6, 1962. Her name was unearthed by fellow Pedro Pan and friend Carmen Romanach. "Elly wanted me to find her; she's now here with all of us," Carmen said. - Luisa Yanez, Pedro Pan Database coordinator

Querida Tinkerbell, This database is the fruit of your long years of loving efforts, your tenacity, and the self dedication to our pledge. I know that you and Monsignor Walsh are watching this wonderful development from the spiritual eternity of Heaven. Thank you for giving us so much, for making our story known world-wide, and for having been a wonderful Pedro Pan sister and friend. Much love Elly; we truly miss you. Betty(Beatriz)Amezaga Wolf
