1969 Birthday Greeting Arrives Decades Late

Transcript

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning, I'm David Greene with a birthday message that might have grown sweeter with age.

A man residing on East 12th Street in Brooklyn recently received a letter postmarked in 1969. It was addressed to Susan Heifetz, who'd lived at the apartment with her family as a child. The letter wished her a happy 19th birthday. When the man contacted Heifetz, she asked if there was any sign of who it came from. On the back there was a lipstick mark. Her late mother did like to seal letters with a kiss.
