The amazing story will probably bring you to tears. It did for me.
Billie Harris was a fighter pilot who fought for America in World War II. He was shot down and killed in July of 1944 over Nazi occupied Northern France.
But his wife Peggy Harris from Vernon, Texas was still in mourning as she did not know what fate had befallen her beloved husband. She has never remarried and still misses her true love.
