Oh my. Just goes to show that nothing is impossible. Can't imagine her emotions upon receiving this.

Chills run up my neck when I hold my grandfathers patches. I can't imagine touching the lost/found dog tags of a spouse. I only wish he was alive to have them back. I am sure she feels the same way.
