|I also have the handwritten letters my father wrote to my mother before they met. They were penpals during WW2. He had very sloppy writing but he filled page after page telling the young woman who wrote to him about his exeriences in Hawaii after Pearl Harbor. He says to her he is afraid she won't write back after she sees his handwriting . Her first letter was done in her neat school teacher writing that looks so perfect it looks like print. I have that first letter of hers to him too. They wrote for three months, he came to Los Angeles met her and in December 1942 married her . All started with handwritten letters.
