A New Jersey woman and her 14-year-old son made a charming discovery after Sandy swept through the coast.

 

WNBC reports Kathleen Chaney and her son, Patrick, reportedly found some 57 love letters written during and after World War II.

 

“And this is the end results. A stack of letters mostly legible filled with the everyday and endearment.”

“I don’t feel like sleeping so I thought I would write you a few more lines. Well, darling, two weeks from today and we will be married.”

 

The letters were written between Dorothy Fallon of New Jersey and Lynn Farnham, a World War II soldier from Vermont. WUPW reports Kathleen wanted to return the love letters to whoever they belong to, so she tracked them down.

 

“Kathleen took her search to the internet, posting on Facebook, Craigslist, and a website called FindAGrave.com, and that's where Dorothy and Lynn's niece found her."

“It's magical. This can't be real.”

 

KYW reports the historic lovers had two children and Chaney plans to mail the families the letters and keep photocopies for herself.
