Norwood Thomas met Joyce Morris in England during World War II and took every chance they had to be together. Unfortunately, Thomas was sent home to America abruptly when the war was over. They still sent letters, and he even asked Morris to marry him but after some misunderstanding, they lost touch. 

70 years later, Morris asked her son to help her look up her old flame and she found him in an article about a D-Day Veteran who just crossed skydiving off his bucket list.

She asked her son to help her contact him and soon enough they were reconnecting over Skype. 


This call eventually led to Thomas visiting Morris in Australia where she lives now.
