Pen pals finally meet after 50 years

Phoenix -- For more than a decade, two pen pals shared their life stories with each other, but only on paper.

Last weekend, they met face-to-face for the first time.

As a fifth grader, Linda Martin answered a letter from a pen pal in Australia named Wendy Norrie. The two continued to write for 55 years.

Recently, Wendy decided it was time for the two to meet in person. She said that even though they know each others stories very well, theres still a lot to be said.

She said that they were never tempted to stop writing letters by hand, even while their friends turned to electronic communication in recent years.
