FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) -- A lost trunk full of memories has been returned to its owner after more than two decades.

The Farmington Daily Times reports (http://bit.ly/H6iBPz) that a Farmington woman recently got her lost trunk back when a Vancouver, Wash., woman contacted her following an attic cleaning.

Shirley Wills had lost her trunk when she and her late husband, George, moved from their Farmington home in 1988.

Julie Hoice said her husband, Phil, found the trunk letters under the sink of an apartment he was renting in Farmington and just kept it. But after rediscovering it in the attic, the two decided to research and find out who owned it.

Shirley Wills said the trunk contained lost love letters from her late husband that he wrote while serving in the Korean War.
