Imagine Receiving a Love Letter That Was Written to You 72 Years Ago–This Man Did
It has been six years since Virginia passed away – but after a mysterious discovery in a New Jersey home, her words have come alive to touch the heart of her husband once more.
Melissa Fahy and her father Alan Cook were doing some construction on their Westfield, New Jersey home earlier this week. As they were renovating, however, an old typed letter fell out of a crack in the ceiling.
The letter was a love note addressed to a man named Rolf Christoffersen from May 4th, 1945.
The letter’s author was Rolf’s wife Virginia. During the time that the letter was sent, Rolf was deployed in the Norwegian Navy, leading Virginia to write the heart wrenching love note, pining for her husband.
“I love you Rolf, as I love the warm sun, and that is what you are for my life, the sun about which everything else revolves for me,” reads the letter.
Melissa was so touched by the letter’s words, she knew she had to give it to the proper recipient. After doing a quick internet search, she found Rolf’s son living in Santa Barbara, California with his 96-year-old father.
The Christoffersen family was so overjoyed to receive such a treasure from their mother’s past, that they connected with Melissa in a video call and thanked her for the compassionate gesture.
“I was so surprised after all these years. I was very happy to find out that a letter like that existed. I am still very emotional,” Christoffersen told CNN.
