HEALEY [nee LANGORD] of New Zealand

My mother is/was Myrna Patricia Langford, married Norm Healey, had 2 Boys and 1 girl [me, Michelle] Tormented marriage, Boys ended up with Dad in Hastings NZ, I was raised by Tom and Myra Langford [nee Kelly]. Myra's bother lived in Wellington NZ,I think, he used to come and stay with us in Papakura often. Tom Langford was known very well in the Horse Racing industry. Owned alot, won some and lost also. Our racing colours were Green & Gold qtrs, with Green or Gold cap, and I remeber one Jockey Racklander. Our horses were named after Welsh towns ,Bargoed, Hengoed and Pengam, as Myra came from Wales.There were alot more horses, but those ones come to mind straight away.we lived in Takanini, near the stables, moved to Laurie Ave., Papakura,prior to commencing school, we had 12 acres for the horses when they had a spell. I remember Tom Langords mother used to live in Mt Eden, with his unmarried sister, we used to visit regular with boxes of fruit and veges, I was never made very welcome. I don't have happy memories of Tom Langford, when recently visiting NZ, found Myra's grave, NO headstone or marking. There certainly was not much love in that marriage.
