StoryCorps: Bill Kuen & Hope Lawler
Volunteer Hope Lawler spends an hour each week with Bill Kuen, a 94-year-old hospice patient. His vision has faded, so she’s been reading back to him some of the love letters he sent his wife Helen during their 59 years together.
At StoryCorps, Hope began the conversation.
Bill’s family estimates that over nearly six decades with his wife, he wrote her between 200 and 300 letters.
