Hi Yolanda, el nombre de mi hermana al salir de Cuba era Sullman Maria Zayas Posada. ella asistia a el Instituto de Marianao. en estos dias cuando mirabamos las turbas en Cuba, ella se acordaba de cuando los estudiantes del Instituto de Marianao, fueron atacados y puestos presos.. By the way, tengo una companera de escuela que ahora vive en New York (somos amigas desde 4to grado en Cuba) estudio en el Instituto del Vedado. No se si la conoces. Su nombre es Avidalia Despaigne. Dejame saber. Carinos, Tania

Gracias Yoli! Ese sweat shirt lo compre yo en el thrift shop de la escuela St. Patrick's, en Sacramento donde vivi mis primeros 6 meses despues de llegar de Cuba. Pero no lo compre hasta 1999 cuando volvi de visita con mi esposo. -Mary

Yolanda, yours is a very intriguing, sad, happy, and inspiring story, all in one. Thank you for your kind words about my own story. Also, for the compliment about my Spanish. I was lucky to go to a nice school in Cuba, and later I tried to keep my native language in check. I asked my mother about someone by the name of Cardenas that at one time or another I had heard mentioned. But, it was not Conrado, it was Gonzalo de Cardenas. He was a salesman. My 84 year-old father has Alzheimer's, so I could not ask him at this time. Also, my father did not work in El Vedado until his company was confiscated and he was moved to that location. It is interesting and coincidental that the uncle (mentioned in my story) that took us in for a few days when we first arrived in the USA, move to near Columbia, SC (Ridge Spring) around 1970. He has lived there since. His wife passed away just last year. Best wishes. Carlos
