A postcard sent to two sisters in Elmira, New York arrived at the right address, but ended up in the hands of another family because it arrived nearly 70 years after it was sent. The card was sent in July, 1943 from Illinois. It was sent to Pauline and Theresa Leisenring by their parents who were visiting their brother at a Medical center during World War II. The family that lives the address now, Adam and Laura Rundell said they were surprised when it arrived at their home in mint condition. They described it as an unexpected treasure. The Rundells did some research and offered the card to relatives of the original sisters, because both since passed away.

Mazurkiewicz said, “As long as three is a deliverable address, the Postal Service will deliver it. — Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell,
