Family Reunited With Lost WW2 Love Letters In Pensacola

A fateful find at a Pensacola, Florida mall is responsible for revealing the beginnings of a decades-long love story.

Jason Boatwright and Chelsea Parker bought some old letters at Miles Antique Mall two weeks ago, and they discovered they were love letters World War Two soldier Clayton Franklin wrote to a girl in Tennessee he didn't even know.

Romance blossomed through the letters, and the couple was eventually married for 60 years before they passed away.

Thanks to Facebook, Boatwright and Parker were able to return the letters to the couple's lone surviving child recently, and the Franklin's' granddaughter says she was moved to tears when she received the letters.
