100 Year Old Get 7,000 Cards For His Birthday

This Morning
Kokomo, IN (WTHR) – How many cards did you get for your birthday this year?

Well probably not as much as Ralph Kuntz!

You see, Ralph’s neighbor and best friend wanted to have a very special celebration for the World War II veterans’ big 100th birthday.

Salena Catron’s goal, 100 cards for 100 years.

Instead, she received over 7,000 and counting.

The cards are coming from all over the World. Everywhere from North Carolina to Switzerland!

Salena says she gets as many as 400 a day!

Ralph was overjoyed by the outpouring of support, and says he’s been trying to read at least ten a day.

It might take him another 100 years to read them all!

On ABC9 News This Morning, Jessica Rae and Scott Larson talked about the bond that Salena and Ralph have. And keep it tuned to ABC9 every morning for more fun and heartwarming stories like this one.
