Trying to find Dressler

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Neil Report 13 May 2003 19:34

Where to start.... I have done this in an attempt to fill a hole in my life and to seek closure so I can move on. I am looking for my Mother her name 'Caroline Diana Theresa Dressler'. I have memories of visiting her Mother (My Grandmother) in Goddard Avenue in Swindon as a small child with my Grandmother 'Vera Solomon'. I also remember Carol visiting me at my Grandmothers house in Bourne Road I was 6-7 yrs old. Another memory I have is of Amanda it is distant but not forgotten. Carol had changed her name to 'Solomon' by Deedpoll but changed it to 'Ponting' when she split from my Father, Derek. Carol had 2 other children a boy and girl that were older than me and Amanda (Bridget was one of them) I am not doing this with intent to upset anyone or bring bad feeling or to leech or invade your lives or to ask for my backlog of Birthday presents. It would be nice to know things though. I would like you to know that if contact never reaches fruition for one reason or another that I am alive and well and bear no ill regards. I am happy but not complete in my life
