(Newser) – A remodeling project that turned into a rediscovery: an Indiana couple found love letters dating back to World War I tucked away in their attic. A contractor hired for the home renovation found the letters in the couple's attic insulation; they were written by Clement Berger, a soldier heading off to fight in the war. The letters were sent to his sweetheart, Mary Borho. A sample line: "You are closer than ever to me, for every day, I long for you more and more." The contractor managed to find Berger's nieces, who will pass the letters down to their grandchildren.
