World War II love letter

Earlier this week I showed you a page one of a love letter I found in my auction purchase. Many of your have requested to know more. I have decided to show you the entire letter. I hope it warms your heart as it did mine. I can't believe the family didn't keep it. But then on the other hand there was so much at this auction, maybe it was over looked.

Isn't that beautiful Don't you just want to know everything about them did it all turn out...did he get home safely.....did they have a large family....Or do you know the people so you know all those things?

Thanks for sharing. It was beautiful.

I loved reading this! Reminded me of my Dad and a letter he wrote my mother during that time. Blessings, Marlene

I felt like a peeping Tom reading how Eula was sending pics of her hose!

I am left wondering what happened to him? DId he get home safely and did they raise a family?

I think you should try to find the family. Do you have last names?

I so hope everything turned out wonderful in the end!

I love how he went on about Eula's purty legs. Seems so innocent compared to today.

Thanks for posting this, Patti.
What innocent times those were.

I want to know more now! What a neat thing to find at an auction. I have all my Grandmas diaries and I read them like novels because I can't wait to find out what happens next.

Thank you for sharing!! So beautiful.. you could really tell he wasn't that in to writing letters but he sure loved his sweetheart. Hmmm, wonder about that "hose display".. was it racy.. do you think? ;) Just wonderful. My Grandma Winfree's name was Eula. P's Dad was in WWII and at Pearl Harbor when it was bombed. He doesn't like to talk about it much. Was this man's name Gay, Gary, or?? Couldn't really make that out. Hope the pieces of the puzzle are put together soon. Keep us posted!! -Tammy

Such letters are priceless. I have many that my parents wrote to each other during the war. I wouldn't ever let them go.

Thanks for sharing!
