Man receives deceased mum's postcard 54 years after it was posted

Wellington , Mon, 30 Apr 2012 ANI

Wellington, Apr 30 (ANI): A postcard mailed from Chicago in 1958 has finally reached its intended recipient, with a little help from Facebook.

The Chicago Sun-Times reported that the postcard depicting Shedd Aquarium recently arrived at Scott McMurry's Virginia home, more than five decades after his mom mailed it.

The 71-year-old said that he immediately recognised his mother's handwriting.

The postcard was addressed to Clairmont Lane in Decatur, Georgia, where McMurry grew up.

But it recently arrived in Elizabeth Fulcher's mailbox on Clairmont Lane in South Daytona, Florida.

Fulcher posted a picture of the postcard on Facebook and her friends helped track down McMurry, Stuff.co.nz reported.

The reason behind half-century mail delay remains a mystery.

In the meantime, the aquarium has offered to give him a tour of the attraction that his late parents visited. (ANI)
