Dear Jane
I have seen your post for the first time today.
Your half brother Stephen is also my half brother.
Your mother was my father's third wife and I knew her first at Christmas 1959 when I was 12 and she was 18 and she had married my dad the month before.
My brother John and I spoke by telephone today to exchange new year greetings and we both mentioned Stephen, very much regretting he has had nothing to do with us since our father died.
Happy New Year to you and please pass on our best wishes to Stephen.
He may not know pour sister Desna died in 2005 and our brother Richard also died in Australia.
As you rightly say, with parents gone and even losing siblings life is too short to hold grudges whatever the reasons for them. As far as I know none of us ever fell out with each other.
I would love to hear from you.
Deb :-)

Jane Ashley. Born 12/5/1978, is searching for relatives not seen since her mother passed on. She is the only daughter of Ann Ashley, nee Lister who sadly passed away 11/11/1991 from cancer. Jane grew up on Anglsey with her mother and father ( Phillip Ashley. born 28/8/1952ish). They moved around the island alot until Anns' cancer became too much. At this point Ann and Jane moved to live with her son from a previous marriage He is called Stephen Uren, a Dr of Physics now residing in Munich Germany, they all lived together at 2 Marian terrace, Garth hill Bangor. They remained here until Ann passed away, After which Jane lived with friends while her father and aunt battled over her custody. The aunt was Chritine crane, last known to be living in Tunbridge wells, but thought to be moving to France,aunty christine had a partner called bill so she maybe re-married now having his surname. Jane moved to London to live with her father, before moving to Devon and marrying, taking the name Jane Hall, she is now divorced and known once again an Jane Ashley, her aunty christine did contact jane briefley before & after she was married, but due to jane moving around so much again she lost the postcard with their new address on. Other known relatives are Aunt Rosemary Lister, Uncle Robert lister, Cousin Sophie Lister, daughter of her aunt rosemary, her aunt rosemary also looked after her granny for many years in a village called Bryngwran, Anglesey. My cousin Sophie is also a very highly skilled stain glass window artist, last known to be living in a canal boat in little venice in london. If you recognise yourself, anyone or anything in this passage please contact us. Jane has only her father and brother left as family and believes that a family feud led to the loss of contact with her mothers side, she would dearly like to make contact once again, she hasn't been very well for a few years & now I am desperate to catch up, ask questions& have a hug. Thankyou for reading this.
