FOUND by Amanda Rekenwith in Waco, Texas
After storage auctions, we often find personal cards, letters, and momentos. In a recent locker in Waco, Texas we found a treasure trove of love letters between Lilian and Ismael. Ismael was here in Texas while Lilian stayed behind in Honduras. All of their passion was made all the more poignant when we found their divorce decree amid the other papers.
