It’s Time To Cry: Man Finds Lost WWII Love Letter He’d Written To His Late Wife

Even the coldest, most bitter of hearts will melt at the sight of 90-year-old Bill Moore gushing over his late wife of 63 years, Bernadean. Bill and Bernadean were dating when he was just a 20-year-old fighting in World War II, back in 1945. While he was deployed, he wrote her countless love letters. Bernadean saved every one, but they were lost after her death in 2010. Ilene Ortiz, a stranger to the Moores, found one of Bill and Bernadean’s notes in a record she’d purchased at a thrift shop in Colorado. She got in touch with her local news station to help her find the couple it belonged to, and six months later it made its way to the Moores’ daughter, Melinda. The letter reads:

“My darling, lovable, alluring, Bernadean. 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. And you are the reason, Bernadean. Even your name sounds lovely to me. It’s just when I get so horribly, terribly lonely for you that I write letters like this. I have never been so homesick for anyone in my life as I am for you.”

Forget rom coms, this is the kind of timeless love worth aspiring to.
