My grandmother's sister and her husband lived there for many years in the fifties and early sixties.  I think that was the time frame.  Their name was Acheson and he worked for one of the Canadian banks as a very senior executive.  My parents used to visit occasionally but I never went.  I was born and grew up in Jamaica.

I haven't been since 87 had a transplant then.  I am scared to go out of the US and have dialysis was hoping someone had traveled there while on dialysis.
