Last year Beagle Street Life insurance company asked people to vote on the greatest love letters ever written. Top of the list was the letter Johnny Cash sent to “the greatest woman I ever met”, his wife June Carter, on her 65th birthday. It was followed by Winston Churchill’s letter to his “darling Clemmie” in 1935.
But what if the love letter you got was less than romantic?
