The letters are now “under lock and key,” family members say, until the couple’s last living daughter can make it up to Vermont from Florida for a family visit later this year.
Thank you so much to Jenn Carter, who found the letters, and granddaughters Theresa White, Shannon Kivler and their extended family, for allowing us to document the return of the letters that captivated the Upper Valley with some good news for a few days.
As I told a couple of the folks involved, it has inspired me to go through some old love letters I inherited from my grandparents some years ago and have never really sat down and read through. That will change soon!
We wish a lot of happy reading to Mr. & Mrs. White’s family in the months and years ahead. ❤
