Better late than never


Army Sergeant John Gonsalves penned a letter to his mom and mailed it to her from Germany at the end of World War II. It was found 76 years later in a U.S. Postal Service processing and distribution facility in Pennsylvania in December 2021 and delivered in January 2022 not to his mother, who had passed away in 2015, but to his widow, Angelina Gonsalves, who lives in Woburn, MA and who was overwhelmed, reports the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. Her late husband, Johnny, passed away in six years ago. And, in a local TV interview with Angelina she said, “I love it. I love it. When I think it’s all his words, I can’t believe it. It’s wonderful. And I feel like I have him here with me.”
