to his mother. Thanking USPS, Angelina shared that Johnny was a wonderful partner, and getting his handwritten letter out of the blue feels like he is with her now.
USPS found an emotional letter written by a WWII soldier for his mother and which is finally delivered 76 years later.
Reportedly, the letter was written by the late veteran Johnny Gonsalves, which was sent to his widow during the holiday season.
According to CBS, Johnny Gonsalves passed away in 2015 at the age of 92 and served in the US army at the young age of 22 as a sergeant stationed in Germany.
The letter dates back to some 76 years ago on December 6, 1945, i.e three months after the war had ended.
"Dear, Mom. Received another letter from you today and was happy to hear that everything is okay.
"As for myself, I'm fine and getting along okay. But as far as the food it's pretty lousy most of the time. Give my love to the family in regards to all. Take care, love and kisses your son Johnny.
"I'll be seeing you soon I hope."
As fate would have it, the letter ended up with Johnny's wife Angeline Gonsalves, his wife of 61 years, who shared the images with CBS.
After receiving the letter, she said:
"I loved him dearly and he was quite a guy. I still feel his presence, I really do."
She called USPS and thanked them for finding her husband's letter.
"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, you know?"
Johnny and Angeline got married in 1953 after he came back from the war. The loving couple lived a happy life and shared five sons together.
"We were good together. I had a good life, I really did. It was wonderful."
After he came back from the war, Johnny worked in the electrical engineering field and graduated from Northeastern University.
He worked for Sylvania for almost 30 years.
In 1973, Johnny was part of the fiber optics team, which was introduced at the Super Bowl and according to his obituary was 'the very beginning of optics which John had shared in the development of'.
