A simple love note, written in the wall, has travelled through time to delight its intended recipient some 50 years after it was first penned by his wife.
When Germaine Langdon was preparing to have a little re-panelling done in her Ontario home, she took the sweet step of writing a little note for her husband in the drywall. It read: Germaine loves Roy March 17th, 1965.
Roy never saw it because it was soon covered up by workmen. But more than 50 years later, their home’s new resident, Rebecca Churáň was doing a little home improvement work of her own, and uncovered the message. “When I tore down the paneling in my living room, it revealed drywall," she wrote on Facebook. "I was exited [sic] because that meant I did not need to drywall haha."
But eventually she decided that the note should be reunited with its intended recipient, and so she posted its picture on a community Facebook page, appealing for anyone with information to come forward. Within days, Claudette, daughter of Roy and Germaine got in touch. Sadly, her mother had passed away in 2006, but Roy would be over the moon to finally get the message.
At the age of 92, Roy finally has his love letter from his wife. “The love I could feel he had for his past wife was almost too hard to take,” Churáň wrote following the handover meeting.
