cbs July 23, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): A letter that had been inscribed back in the 1930s finally reached its wished-for destination in Stockton this week. The letter was only just delivered to the Women’s Center of San Joaquin County. This Center is situated at 620, North San Joaquin Street, in Stockton. 73 years ago, the edifice was utilized as a convent.

She wondered about how a letter could hover in the system for a whopping 73 years.

Gomez did finally unwrap the letter and commenced to leaf through it. The note was transported to Miss Marie Fergone from a San Francisco nun, Sister Justine. The letter wished Marie a gleeful Christmas and a new year loaded with lucky things. The letter progressed with the nun affectionately inscribing that she wished that Marie will live for several years to come.

Joelle Gomez hunted down the family of Marie. Her family uttered that Marie was learning to become a nun at the convent at 620, North San Joaquin Street, in Stockton. However, Marie deviated from that path. She instead walked down the aisle and had a family. Marie passed away in 2009.

Gomez has articulated that Marie’s life could have traveled on a dissimilar path had she attained the letter 73 years ago. This letter had a constructive tone and encouraged Marie to continue her studies.

The Post Office has divulged that they now intend to bestow the letter to Marie’s fami
