Completely unbeknownst to the owner, Gordon, he found a very old and emotional letter in the midst of an old book, that was tugged carefully and had fallen accidentally on the ground. The letter, Gordon noted, was addressed to one Bethany Gash and had been written by her mother who it turned out, had passed away due to complications from a surgery. Bethany, when she was called, recalled her father reading out the letter to her a good 21 years back.

Gordon Draper revealed that the moment he found out the letter, he immediately thought of seeking help from the revered BBC to track down who it had been meant for, i.e, Bethany Gash.

And amazingly, both were successful in contacting Bethany who was indeed ‘grateful’ at having re-discovered the letter she had almost forgotten about.

There’s always unbound happiness in receiving mementos of kindness and the good-natured Bethany couldn’t shy away from extending her gratitude to Mr. Draper when she said, “It’s absolutely overwhelming considering something so small can mean so much to someone.”
