Shirley was seven and Norma was 5, it was wartime when they had last been together.We managed to track Norma down with Mary and Jean's help.It was a big shock for Norma to be found. Having had lots of lovely ,long chats on the phone and photo swaps, they met for a truly wonderful weekend.
They felt like they had known each other for years, and are quite similar in character!
A real success story. Huge thanks to Mary and Jean for their help. Well done GR!
I've thoroughly enjoyed all the puzzles and excitement my new hobby has brought me, as well as all the lovely people who've helped me .
