There was one thing that I had to leave behind, and that was a beautiful doll. It was a brand new one that I had gotten from Santa Claus, and I had to leave that behind. I was very disappointed but with only one suitcase that could be taken. I got to take a rag doll that my sister had made, and I think that was the only toy that I got to take with me. But the funny part was that when we got back to the Island, my doll was still sitting on that sofa. So I had it all through high school, it was just sitting on my bed that was the one thing I loved so much as a kid!
