A 92-year-old Canadian man was reunited with a love letter his late wife wrote to him on a piece of drywall in 1965.
Germaine Langdon carved a note to her husband, Roy, in a piece of drywall inside of their home in Blezard Valley, Ontario.
"Germaine loves Roy March 17th, 1965," the note read. Fast forward to March of 2016, when the same house was undergoing renovations.
"Found this in a house I'm renovating … Share to find the kids/grandkids of Germaine and Ron," Rebecca Churan wrote on her Facebook page, alongside a picture of the note.
The Langdons' daughter, Claudette Leblanc, saw the post on Facebook and recognized her mother's handwriting. She contacted Churan and set up a meeting with her father, 92-year-old Roy. Churan cut the piece of drywall out and gave it to Langdon in an emotional meeting.
The Langdon family moved out of the house years after the note was carved, and Germaine died in 2006.
"I was invited to their easter dinner to surprise him.. honestly the best thing I have ever seen.. the love I could feel he had for his past wife was almost too hard to take. As weird as it is I felt a very deep connection with this family and I'm honored I was able to deliver this little gift to you guys," Churan wrote.
Langdon's other daughter, Diane Marcuccio, told Northern Life that her parents "loved each other so much" and were inseparable up until her mother's death. At the time of the note in 1965, the couple had been married 16 years. The couple had six children.
Marcuccio said her father now plans to frame the drywall and hang it in his basement as a tribute to his beloved wife.
