Siblings reunited after 71 years
A Kansas man and his sister have been reunited after more than 70 years apart.
Jim Nixon met his half-sister, Mary Gold, at Mid-Continent Airport Tuesday. The two had been separated for 71 years due to family divorces and re-marriages.
The siblings remotely knew about each other, and reconnected about two months ago. Mary flew into Wichita from California, and said they have a lot of catching up to do.
"We're just gonna talk and talk and talk, I'm sure," she said.
Mary plans to visit Jim and his Pratt family for a week.
