My mother used to have pen pals, and when she married and came to England at the age of 20, she was forced to stop writing to them.
Check this. well while we was going through the photos we found pictures of my mums penpals and on the back were messages and their names!! SOOOOOOOO enter Google and Facebook!
They were found, hoping its the same person! Both on Facebook and I contacted them to see if they would write to my Mum again. Fingers crossed. It would be the perfect Birthday present.
