Keen to return pen pal pics

LETTER

Many years ago, back in the days when letters were hand written, I had a pen pal who lived in Gisborne.

I learned a few years ago that sadly she had passed away. Her name was Shirley Stephens and she had three daughters — Sharyn, Kym and Vivienne (she also had two sisters, Rebecca and Sue).

During the time that we corresponded, Shirley sent me some photos. I have made digital copies of these photos and I would like to pass the originals back to her children.

Can anyone help me locate Sharyn, Kym or Vivienne? (The Herald has my contact details.)
