Their background story on the gift shop website reveals that their story goes all the way back fifty-seven years to when a nine-year-old boy met Linda, the visiting granddaughter of his parents’ neighbor. He built for her a lovely decorated wooden box lined in navy velvet “to hold all the letters I will write to you while you are away.” They corresponded and visited over many more summers and then stayed in touch as adults independently pursuing their careers.
