For 7 decades Peggy Harris tried to sort out her life. She tried to, first of all, explain the mystery of the disappearance of her beloved husband, Billie.
Their love story began in 1944, when Peggy, then living in Vernon, Texas, met her beloved for the first time. Shortly after, the young couple married – they knew that things are uncertain during times of war so postponing their engagement would not have made sense.
The freshly minted spouses spent just a few short weeks together, enjoying each other’s company and presence. A month after the wedding, Billie, being a military pilot, was deployed to Europe to fight in World War II. And unfortunately, that was the last time Peggy heard from her newly wedded husband. Only recently, 70 years after the event, did she learn the bitter, heartbreaking truth.
