Hallmark Hall of Fame-Lost Valentine
Well, I am just crying my eyes out on the old front porch...I just watched the Lost Valentine with Betty White. It was a tear jerker anyway...it is what Hallmark does, even the classic ads make me cry. But the story hit so close to my heart. My mother who would have been 90 (only a year older than Betty is) a few days ago lost her husband in Italy during WWII. He was injured and could not get medical care and died of his injuries. My twin sisters were born while he was gone and although he knew of their birth never saw them. I guess I am trying to say this movie made me think of what my mother must have gone through when she got her telegram and had to deal with her loss...
