Christmas reunion for father and daughter

December 26, 2003

Albany -- A Christmas reunion for a father and his daughter separated for over 30 years. An Albany man lost contact with his child and her mother for almost 32 years. During that time he searched for them with little success. Luckly his daughter who now lived in Ohio was also searching for her lost father. This Christmas the two were reunited.

"She jumped out of the car," recalls Gradis Lewis Jr."We just hugged each other for a long time and we cried and we just held each other you know." Lewis's daughter was not the only visitor he had Thursday. His daughter also introduced his to his three new grand kids.
