World War II Vet Reunited With Love Letter 72 Years Later

Veteran love letterWESTFIELD, N.J. (AP) — A love letter lost in the walls of a New Jersey home has reached a World War II veteran 72 years after it was written.

Melissa Fahy and her father were renovating her Westfield home when they found the letter in a gap under the stairs. It was postmarked May 1945 and written by a woman named Virginia to her husband, Rolf Christoffersen, who was a sailor in the Norwegian Navy.

Fahy tells WNBC-TV in New York she couldn’t believe the love and admiration Virginia had for her husband.

She tracked down the couple’s son in California, who read the letter to his 96-year-old father.

Virginia had died six years ago this weekend.

Fahy says, “I guess it’s his wife coming back and making her memory alive again.”
