After locating Chuck & Mary’s wedding registry online, the Felker family, who live hundreds of miles away in Illinois decided to send the package.
The letter stated “Your names were the first listing on the search results to be getting married in 2018. Through a little bridal registry ‘detective work,’ we found an address to send this gift to,”
It turns out, the couple shares the same names as the Felker’s departed parents from La Crosse, Wisconsin.
The shared first names were all it took to inspire a wonderful act of kindness.
The letter was to congratulate Chuck and Mary on their forthcoming wedding.
Mary tells WFIE “We opened it, and he started reading that letter, and as he started reading, I just got chills and goosebumps all over.”
“He kept reading… and I was just shocked.”
This was an extremely sentimental gift.
The letter read: “We kindly wish that you will accept these engraved champagne glasses that had once belonged to our late parents.”
Chuck and Mary Felker, of La Crosse, Wisconsin, were married for a delightful 62 years.
A small photo of the two young lovebirds was included at the bottom of the letter.
Mary was astounded by the pair of personalized vintage glasses:
Engraved with the words ‘Let me dance with you forever, Mary & Chuck’
Evidently, the couple plans to utilise the glasses on their wedding day.
But wait… the strange incident doesn’t end here.
Mary also observed the glasses were packaged in a Converse shoe box.
“I’m like, ‘No way!‘”
Mary and her bridesmaids planned to wear the famous Chuck Taylor shoes by Converse from the beginning underneath their dresses!
Honestly, what is the likelihood?!
