Hola Yolanda: hace mucho tiempo que no entro, pero ahora estoy retirada por problemas con la vista. Todos los 4 de agosto me acuerdo de ti y de Alberto. Revivo lo que pasamos ese día dentro de la pecera y que, lo peor de todo fuera, que era la despida para siempre de mis padres. Por eso jamás perdonaré a esa gente. Te deseo lo mejor y espero que estés bien. besos de tu compañera de salida, Josie.

Gracias por tu mensaje Yolanda. Did you go to the 50th reunion last year? I went with my husband, so many memories that I had forgotten all came back in an instant. I hope you are doing well, and are happy. I still have my Mom she is 88 now. My Dad died in 1977 at the young age of 56. Everything that he lost in Cuba he got back. He worked hard as a Physician (Dr. Angel Cadiz) at the VA Hospital may he rest in peace. We are a very close family. Take care and keep in touch, we have so much to share. Maria Conchita

Yoli, Gracias por escribir, tienes razon, he pecado por omicion. Mi querida hermana PP de los 60' y Lucista de los 50'. Fijate que ahora no voy a mencionar los otros companeros del Colegio La Luz. Tambien, quiero que sepas que no pude comunicar con nuestra querida hermana Lucista y casi PP Ivonne Marti, ya que ella nacio el mismo dia y an~o, aunque unos minutos antes que yo, y por eso ella es mas inteligente, y siempre fue la numero # 1 de la clase.
