Yesterday, Huck and Sandra met an aunt on the other side of the family for the first time in more than 50 years.

Wanda Jane Jones aka Kim is their aunt cuz her dad was their grandfather.

Their grandfather was once married to Helen Tingley who later married Edgar Love.

The marriage between Helen Tingle and Wanda's father produced Mildred, who was Bill and Margaret's older half-sister and Huck and Sandra's mother. She was killed in a car accident in the early 1950s, and, as a result, the family unit scattered a bit.

Convoluted story, but we figured it out yesterday when many of the faces converged at Wanda's house. Huck gave Wanda/Kim a letter to read aloud, which she had written more than 50 years ago.

She was a school principal in Orange for years.
