2 Teens Write Letters To Each Other Every Month. 42 Years Later They Meet In Person!

A lost art is the art of having a pen pal. Someone who you exchanged letters with using good old fashioned pen and paper and the post office. George Ghossn and Lori Gertz were pen pals for 42 years! They started writing letters to each other when George was 14 and Lori was 12. It all started as a chain letter, but they kept in touch over the years (and years!).

Needless to say, the two became quite close friends. Lori got married and had two children, and still, they wrote to each other. George thought if they ever met, it would damage their friendship somehow – so they never actually met. Finally, George traveled across the country to meet Lori.

You can watch the video below to see the moment when these lifetime friends finally met!

What an incredible story and the moment they met was magical! Incredible isn’t it?!

Well, share away then!
