Half-sister, full sister and her children

In the past several weeks, I have been contacted by the adult children of a long lost full sister who I had tried to find on this site with no luck. Sadly, she passed away earlier this year, but her children upon Googling my father's full name, immediately found my search. Several years ago the son of an unknown cousin (on my father's side of the family) also found me and through him, my half-sister. To be in contact with these relatives and see and send photos back and forth and exchange information, is a joy which is hard to describe. Thank you Genes Reunited!!
