In this article it states my father "Walton Pinky Sanchez" did not have any kids...Well, my name is Stephanie Solis age 31 born in Mcallen Tx in 1977. My father also has another daughter whom is my sister Jennifer Solis age 29 born in Dallas Tx in 1979. After the divorse of my parents my mother San Juanita aka "Janie" decided to move my sister & I to Dallas to start a new life. But the tragedy of my father's death has not only made my sister & I very sad but to also know we will never have the opportunity to met him makes it worse on us.

If you are 31 and your sister is 29, don't you think that both of you are old enough to have met your father before? I feel for you but on the other hand, not really because there should have been no reason nor excuse of why you had not met your father before. If this man was 48 years old, then he had you when he was 17-18 and 19-20 years old. I'm assuming that your mother was also a teenager when she had you. When both of your parents are teens, there are things that they tend to keep away from their parents. If the paper says that "he had no kids" perhaps its because he never told his parents/family about you both. Things happen in the teen/adult world that when you were a baby/child, you have no say-so on your parents decisions but once you reach adulthood, you go looking for answers. If anything, you could have gone and met your father before, regardless of whatever happened in the past between your parents. Now, like you said, you will never have the opportunity to meet nor know your father. We live in such a screwed up world that there is no excuse of why we can't search for answers that happened in the past.
