Peter Billelo met his wife over 50 years ago, during a trip to visit his mother in Italy. Her name was Grace, and after they wed, they returned to Conneticut where they lived for many years. The pair were inseparable until 2001, when Grace was diagnosed with cancer. She battled it for eight years, and in 2009, Peter came up with an idea: They should each sign a dollar bill, and he would keep them in his pocket, a sort of good luck charm or token of the hope he had for her survival. What happened next is heartbreaking – but this is one story that also comes with a happy ending.
