Long-Lost Love Letters Discovered in Michigan

From the Jan. 30, 2014, Yahoo! News/ABC News "Strangers Discover Long-Lost Love Letters in Attic, But Story Doesn't End There" by Eliza Murphy. //// Joshua McKinney, of Casnovia, Michigan, was removing old insulation in his attic Jan. 25 and found a stack of old love letters from World War II. They were wrapped in a pink ribbon and included a 1942 birth certificate for William Kissel and a marriage certificate from 1941 for Edward and Virginia Kissel. //// He alerted his local news station and media and within four hours Christina Frein, the grand-daughter of Edward and daughter of William, from Muskegon, an hour away, knew about it. //// That was the same weekend that her uncle, William's brother, had died and she said it was "like my dad was trying to talk to me." Her grandfather Edward died before she was born. //// No one from the family has ever lived in Casnovia, but the house had been in Muskegon in the 1940s and was part of a community. After the war, the house was separated from the others and relocated to Casnovia. //// An Interesting Story, But Wait, There's More. --GreGen
