Such A Sweet Reunion: Daughter Finally Meets Her Father Again 26 Years After She Was Told That He Had Died
Nearly 30 years ago, a woman named Janie Rudolph was told that her father died of a heart attack. At the time, she thought she was never going to see him again. However, a couple of weeks ago, father and daughter reunited once again.
It all started years ago Ronnie Rudolph separated from his wife, Janie's mother. According to NewsChannel5, he moved to a different state. Other members of Rudolph's family moved around a lot and soon Ronnie lost contact with them.
However, a few years later, Janie discovered that her dad had moved to Lebanon where he worked at a concrete plant. She would sometimes call the workplace and speak to him, and for a while, they maintained contact.
One day, Janie received a phone call from her father's workplace and she was told that he had a heart attack and he died. She believed them and did not bother to investigate further. She got married, had a family and simply moved on.
Janie also informed her relatives of the news and everyone accepted that he was gone. For 26 years, they thought Ronnie was no longer alive. Then, a few months ago Janie began doing some digging after her mother's passing. She was looking for her dad's death certificate and did not find one. She began considering the possibility that he wasn't dead.
Upon further investigation, Janie found out that Ronnie was, in fact, still alive and living in Lebanon. It was a shocking but happy discovery. Janie arranged a family reunion at his house. So, she and a bunch of other relatives made their way there.
It was a powerful and emotional reunion. Janie could not stop declaring her love for her dad and Ronnie was thrilled to see everyone, including his four grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. It was surely an unforgettable moment for everyone.
