(Newser) – A lost message from more than 60 years ago may finally finish its long journey. Sheila Polk bought a book from a Goodwill in Plant City, Fla., but when she flipped to the back page she got a lot more than she bargained for: A lost, still-sealed letter sent in 1945 from Sgt. Albert C. Alm Jr. to Private First Class Helen Rothurmel, who was stationed in Dallas, Texas. Polk has decided to leave the letter unopened and try to return in to its rightful owner if she is still alive, or find surviving family.
