Maytia. ¡Hablando de la importancia de los nombres...! Discúlpame por no darme cuenta de que prefieres el nombre de Maytia y te llamé Gertrudis en mis otras notas. No pasará más. Yolanda

Gertrudis, I just left a message for you at your sister's site with my condolences to you for her loss, which I reiterate here. --You were at the camp when I was there, and I recognize your face from the photo of that time. We probably stood together more than once at that fence watching the soldiers go by.--Your mother's photo of the plane at Rancho Boyeros is terrific. It hit me right in the gut, as I can imagine now, as a mother, what she must have been feeling as she tried to capture one last image of the moment her daughters left her side, not really knowing when and if she'd see them again. Gratefully you were reunited and had time to make up for that terrible moment. A Pedro Panner Hug to you, Yolanda

Gertrudis, Welcome to the database. From your story, I can tell you're a survivor, a trait of so many Pedro Pans. Sorry to hear your sister passed away. You should register her into the database. She should be there, too.
