when dad was in WWll, one letter was saved, or given to my mom. in his letter, he wrote to each person in his family,his mom, his dad, and his 4 brothers and 2 sisters. it was so endearing for him to put that special, personal note to each one in his family. we also have the newpaper edition of when he went missing in action for 6 weeks. he was shot down near calais,france. we loved to hear his stories of his youth.

Personal love notes/letters are way more personalized and intimate....the handwriting, the actual paper, the image, etc. Think about it...how often do we save an e-mail or text (which yes have replaced these in many cases)...I still have a few notes from my younger years. Gosh, I loved getting actual letters in the mail....(I'm going to stop now cause I'm sounding old).

You are not getting old...just romantic. When I was younger, I thought only girls keep love letters from their admirers, when I got married I saw boxes of love letters my ex received from his girlfriends. When he was not around I would spend time reading them. He would blush when I teased him because some of the notes were "Return to Sender" (his letters to a gilfriend who broke up with him.) I think he still have them because he took and hid them away. I still prefer handwritten letters and cards.

I wrote a lot of little poems and notes and put them in my husband's lunch box or coat pocket for him to find. Sometimes it would embarrass him cuz he'd take a little guff from the guys, but he never asked me to stop. He was romantic, but not very poetic so when he'd leave for work early, before I woke up, he'd have the sweetest note waiting for me. It would be a funny attempt at a poem.

Once we received a large crab cutout advertisement from the science museum. We would leave it in places for each other to find. It started as a joke to see where it would show up next, but for one of us traveling to find in a suitcase meant the ones at home loved and missed you. (It even went to Israel:) Our neighbor recently found our "crab" and after hearing the story decided to join in on the fun. The following morning I found it in the shower! Great fun and great memories. I had a good laugh over that one.

One of my all-time favorite love notes was very large (8X11), and came through the interbranch mail delivery at work...

It was a heavy tagboard work portfolio, and I thought.."Oh, another grant request full of verbage to wade through..." When I opened it up, it was an anonymous love note from a man I'd gone out with the week before. Inside were mounted two REAL CANDY BARS!! Handwritten around the candy bars it read,

'LOOK no further, your BIG HUNK is here!"

I was 19 when I received my first love note. Working at Al's Diner in Virginia Beach, a guy left me a note on a napkin with the tip. It said, "you have a beautiful smile. Never lose that." I never saw him again. He never came back into the diner. But to this day, I still think of that note and smile.

Just wanted to let guys know that those notes are so appreciated!

I believe love lotes aren't dead because I'm guilty of thinking about it at least a few times in a year. It's the best way for me to show how much I like the gal. I've written them in the past & it usually resulted to making that particular day for her extra special. The best part is when they're able to read my cursive written notes :).

We, in the education field, would call that crab a "transitional object". Transitional objects are used as a source of comfort with children who are having difficulty with separation, and to be reminded, just as you said, that there are people at home who love them. That crab story is too cute.
