My Love Story Winner!

Well, I have to say a big thanks to everyone who emailed me with a love story. It was such an amazing and eye opening experience to read them all and I thank you for sharing them with me.   So the big questions, Is my faith restored in marriage and long term relationships?

I really think it is a perfect example of true love!   My Grandfather lost a father brother and uncle on the western front during the 1st world war. He attempted to sign up himself but as he was a rather short 15 year old in 1916 he was unable to bluff his way in. At the outbreak of WW2 Poppa saw his opportunity to avenge/honour the deaths of his family members, he signed up but due to his age of 40 at that time he was unable to join a combat unit so he served as a stretcher bearer with the 2/9 AGH (Australian General Hospital).   While serving with the 2/9 AGH in Egypt and Palestine, Poppas’ then wife left him for an American soldier who was billeted…
