Good Evening San Pedro,

My name is Carter and I used to live on the island of San Pedro with my mother and grandmother when I was a young boy. It's been quite a while, but I've known that my mother Celeste was quite active in the local community as a musician, bartender, hospitality guru and even a volunteer firefighter. My grandmother Elaine was also quite esteemed in the town for her wise words and wonderful stories. Both have passed in the years to come, and I was stranded in America, far away from my spiritual home at a young age. I've been through some hard knocks, but I'm proud to say that I'm 21 years old, a Senior at the University of South Alabama and I'm on track to graduate in 5 years like most normal college students. My degree will be in the field of Hospitality and Tourism Management, with a specialization in Music Technology. Is there anyone who possibly knew my mother and grandmother out there? I'm trying to build connections and make way for my return and possibly get a job when I make my way down there. I don't remember everything, but I do remember Captain Tom Thomas, Nurse Natalie, and the Picous. If anyone could connect me with those people that would be much appreciated. My email is [email protected] and my American phone is 12514900403. We can connect on facebook if that makes things easier and more modern. Thank you for anyone who is listening.

Wow, my image of you is still a little boy. I knew Celeste well. You and I spent some time together during the hurricane when she was gone. You may remember using my handheld radio to try and call her in the aftermath of the hurricane. It was hopeless to contact her with the radio but seem to take your mind off the storm and being without Mama. It did annoy the crap out of local Citizen Band operators :-).

Captain Tom recently and fondly mentioned you to me .... You can find him at Mystic River Resort, in Cayo.
Contact info should be easy to find online.
I am sure he would be thrilled to hear from you!

PS ....... Elaine was the Carol Burnett of San Pedro. Bright, FUNNY, energetic and able to light up the room or elicit guffaws with her amazing facial expressions. We adored her!

It is lovely to hear from you Carter. You should be very proud of your achievements. Your Mom and Grandma were well loved and appreciated here on the island and you were quite the little imp!

Come home some time in the near future.
