Rose Hill is from Hillsboro, Oregon, the place where the items were found.

When Rose received a phone call from her son, he said, “Mom, you’re all over social media.” It was then that she found out that she had been missing something in her life for a very long time.

She made arrangements to meet up with Rose to return what belonged to her. She even wrapped them up nicely to give Rose a little bit of a surprise.

As soon as Rose opened the package, she couldn't believe what was in front of her.

Inside of the package was a pile of envelopes, dating all the way back to the 1970s. They were letters sent to her from her ex-husband, Joe Hill, while he was serving time in the Vietnam War.
