Love Letters Washed Up on Our Shore After the Hurricane

They’re being called the Superstorm Love Letters.

Love letters from World War II (not pictured) written by a New Jersey woman to her boyfriend washed ashore during Superstorm Sandy.

A 14-year-old found the 57 letters inside a box while walking along a beach in Atlantic Highlands the day after the hurricane struck.

The letters chronicled life for Dorothy Fallon and her boyfriend Lynn Farnham from 1942 until the week before they married in 1948.

Kathleen Chaney, the mom of the boy that found the letters, started playing amateur detective as her son dried the letters.

She left a message on a website where she learned that the husband had died in 1991. That’s when a niece contacted her to say that 91-year-old Dorothy Fallon Farnham is in frail health in Asbury Park.

It’s believed the letters floated from the Rumson area down the Shrewsbury River into Sandy Hook Bay.

True love never dies….even when swept away in a storm.
