Most couples exchange a few love letters, especially during courtship. But this man has written a love letter every day for over 30 years.

74-year-old Bill Bresnan has written his wife, Kirsten, a grand total of over 10,000 love letters. What started out as a note scribbled on a napkin became periodic cards, and these turned into daily love letters. "They mean everything to me," Kirsten said. "I have said that I would be so heartbroken if there was a night when I didn't get a card."

"If the world knows how I feel about this woman, then maybe, maybe, someone will say, 'Gee, why aren't I doing that? Why am I focusing on all the minutiae and all the nonsense instead of focusing on what's real?' This is real," Bill said.
