To my new extended family (that is how I feel about you all)

have just gotten off the phone with "OUR GERTRUDE" very emotional time
sorry that it has taken me so long to get back to you

Gertrude Kolsch (Selwood, Giaquinto born Egan(illegitimate)) is so happy she has only stopped looked for Wayne recently (husband has alzheimers)
Wayne's sister is Donna giaquinto born 1943 he also has 2 brothers (Kolschs)

I have told my daughter and my son now I need to get calmed down to call Wayne.

Love you all
Janice

I don't know about you lot - but there just aren't words...

Janice - God bless you and your family. Take some time now and get to know your new family. Keep us posted. I still can't believe we got to here. It has renewed my faith in God and Humanity.

There are so many people who say that the internet is a bad thing. Well - I think they should see this...

Much love, hugs and kisses

Think Janice is having hard time composing herself. She was on site again a few minutes ago but back off.

While offline I told several peolpe who know about this search & I kept on breaking down & crying.

Got to be 10X harder for Janice.

*WOW*
Ciao amici

is really all i can say.

thank you to all who put in the time you put in and the effort that went along with it.
i was sleeping when my mom came home and to come up stairs and hear her on the phone almost in tears but smiling i kinda knew what was up, and to think i just said yesterday don't ya think you are getting a little off track now looking for Kolsch ? Man was I wrong. Well i guess i'll take mom out for dinner and a nice bottle of wine ( she doesnt drink but EH ! ) nothing stops me from spreading the cheer.

Although i don't really know where this leave's us but its good none the less. i had a talk with my sister and told her that i'm not going to bed tonight thinking my grandfater was a monster i just can't do it there are two side's to every story and he isn't here to tell his kinda sucks we have to go by whats said by a third party but thats what we grew up with right?

what a really think is its up to Wayne to see how he wants to take it where he wants to go with it me my grandfather will always be my grandfather and grandma well who knows thats another day.

Grazie mille davvero! Siete i migliori!

p.s hopefully my italian is right
again a million thank you's

Rob

Your grandfather will always be your grandfather. He loved you and your Dad. You can never know someones motives. Perhaps he couldn't bear the thought of being separated from your Dad, although he might not have gone about it the right way. My parents are divorced - and that was difficult at the time, but as you get older you realise that things are never totally black and white. It can be difficult to accept some things - but just try to let go of it and live for whats happening now. I know fifty years seems like a lot of wasted time - but don't waste the good times to come by dwelling on it too much.

Lots of love
