Bill Moore was 20 years old when he wrote a love letter to his soon-to-be wife Bernadean. 70 years later, he sat in tears at his retirement home reading the words he once wrote. “My darling, lovable, alluring, Bernadean,” begins the letter. “I ran out of space, but I could have written a lot more adjectives describing you. You are so lovely, darling, that I often wonder how it is possible that you are mine. I'm really the luckiest guy in the world, you know.”
The long lost letter was found in by a woman in Westminster, Colorado who discovered it tucked away in an antique record she bought. Because of the age of the letter, the woman thought the prospects of returning it to the original owner was a longshot. Turns out, the author lived just a few towns over in Aurora, Colorado. The power of love is a curious thing.
