This was one of the most romantic and sweetest things I have ever read. I quote:
Ted Howard wrote 98 letters to his sweetheart Mollie during the seven years he spent courting her. However, she tore them into pieces and stuffed them into a cushion after finding someone reading them in 1953.
It has taken Mr Howard 15 years to put the fragments back together. The 82-year-old, whose wife died three years ago, said that the mental exercise helped him deal with his grief.
Letter writing seems to have gone by the by these days and I am to blame equally, just dont get enough time. But yes, that courting by letters strikes a very personal chord indeed! :)
