Memorial Day is an occasion for most families where they reminisce about their lost loved ones. For two ladies, both growing old, it was a moment of joy and reunion after finding out they were long lost half-sisters. 

94-year-old Reta Knight and 85-year-old Zelda Gates thought they had seen it all, until it was recently revealed to them that they had a half-sister that they did not know existed. The existence of a half-sister was revealed to Zelda when her father's will was read out to her by her family. It came as a shock to her and her brothers who had no idea that their father had children from another marriage. Attempts were then made to locate Zelda's half-sister who was nine years older.

They were looking for Reta Knight, who was left by her father at a very young age, had not seen him once and never knew him. She said she always wondered why her father didn't try to locate her. Even her mother was evasive whenever she asked questions about her father. To this day, she doesn't know what happened between them.

Meanwhile, younger sister Zelda's family started researching using Geneology websites, photographs and other resources online and finally found Reta Knight who they identified as Zelda's half-sister. Months later, the two finally met up in Jenks, Oklahoma. What a wonderful meeting it was!
