Reunited...and it feels so good.
You guys...we just had the coolest thing happen.
we met a History teacher named Beth Z.
She was very interested in the box of WWII love letters that we had.
We chatted about them for awhile and she bought a few of them to share with her classes.
A few days later we got an email from her saying that through some internet research, she had found Julie B. , the daughter of the couple in the letters! Beth forwarded the email response from Julie:
"That is indeed my mother and father, who are both deceased. My Dad was always writing home (St. Paul) to my mother. He was stationed in London and was a pilot in WWII. I believe he was also in Stevens Point, WI and other parts of the U.S. Of a family of six there are only my brother and myself left"
After hearing this we knew the right thing to do. So we gathered up all the letters and are going to be mailing them out today (5/30/14) to Julie B. What a wonderful surprise that will be for her and her brother. We're just happy that they are finding their way back to the family!
We will keep you posted about their journey!
Have a wonderful weekend!
