Long before smartphones revolutionized our world and our daily lives, people wrote letters to their loved ones. They were used to communicate short messages and notes and to connect with people.
A Redditor brought back memories of that time by posting a letter from their grandmother to her then-husband in 1962.
“A letter found in my late grandfather’s belongings, a letter my grandmother wrote to him in 1962,” the Reddit user captioned the post, attaching a screenshot of the letter.
This is how the letter begins: “Dear Morty: It’s the first of June. That means our wedding is in just three weeks! I’m so happy, I just can’t think of anything else. Isn’t it wonderful, my dear, that with all the millions and millions of people in the world, you and me should have met…and fell in love…and now we’ll get married soon!Or do you think it was all planned that way, way back maybe – even before we were born?”

But there’s always your brothers in Canada,” the woman said in the letter.
“Love me too, honey. Never stop loving me. You’re the most important thing in life to me now that you know that, aren’t you? All my love and a million kisses,” she said at the end of the letter and sign with her name “Pauline”.
The post has become a hit on Reddit, with over 6,500 people voting for it. The responses are also nice.
