    I am so very sorry for your loss of your Husband , and Father . I know I was NOT a planned relative in your eyes relatively but DNA has proven me to be your Niece through blood. I did not ask this but I know that sometimes life brings on unexpected circumstances. If not for DNA I would have never known you were my Uncle. I might be the “dirty little secret” in your family history but i was MEANT to be. I exist for a reason unbeknownst .to me. I so wish I could have known you. And that you would have accepted me when you learned about me from Mary Ann. But I know these things are hard.
