A love letter lost in the walls of a New Jersey home reached a World War II veteran 72 years after it was written, the AP reports.
Melissa Fahy and her father found the letter in a gap under the stairs while renovating her Westfield home.
The letter, postmarked May 1945, was written by a woman named Virginia to her husband, Rolf Christoffersen.
Her husband was a sailor at the time in the Norwegian Navy. "I love you Rolf, as I love the warm sun," Virginia Christoffersen wrote. "That is what you are to my life, the sun about which everything else revolves for me."
She decided to find the Christoffersens and deliver the letter, turning to a Facebook page for help. Facebook users located the couple's son in California hours after Fahy's post.
The son read the letter to his 96-year-old father. Virginia died six years ago this weekend. "In a way, I guess it's his wife coming back and making her memory alive again," Fahy said.
