William Barnes(second from left) was my father whom I had a chance to meet in my mid 40's, it was a honor to meet my half sisters and one brother(whom I have known longer). Unfortunately my mother decided to tell me the truth during the time my father suffered from Alzheimer's, but the best part I had a chance to finally meet the one person I always wanted to meet!
