Searching for my Father

After years of searching for my Father without success GR found him in two days, although sadly he is deceased and my half sister also, I am now in touch with lots of great nephews and nieces, and hope to meet them soon, a whole new family I didn't know I had. A very big thankyou to all at GR with a special mention to Kay. You are all incredible people, and long may you continue xx
