My name is Patricia Cruz Mullins Diaz. I’m from Arizona. I’ve been looking for my dad since 1958 (age 10). His name is Horace Manuel Mullins, born in 1929. On In 2011,,my daughter found an email dtd 2003, stating that my brother (William Randall Mullins) was trying to locate siblings from his dad’s side.She showed me the Email, I tried to contact my brother but didn’t succeed because he changed his email address.For a while, I gave up on the search. In 2017, I decided to post a copy of the email on Facebook, but no one responded. I gave up again.

This year, March 11th, I again posted a copy of the same email on Facebook. Lo and behold, a girlfriend
of mine (Rita Dziobecki French) who moved from Arizona to Florida last year, saw my FB post and texted me that there’s a possibility that she might have found my brother, gave me an address and phone number. As soon as I read her text, I called the number. Sure enough, I found myself talking to my brother. He told me all about my dad, that he passed away in 1996 and that I have 5 siblings. Within two hours, I found myself talking with my two sisters and one brother. I was told that one brother passed away. Two months later May 1st) I flew to Florida/Alabama to finally meet them. On May 4th, we had a beautiful Mullins family reunion. Before I left, my siblings and I went to visit Dad at his gravesite. I was so happy and excited that my four siblings and I were finally united after 71 years. Next year, I plan to go visit them again.
