The Internet is swooning over the sad story behind an eBay wedding dress

A charity shop in the UK has successfully tracked down the anonymous man whodonated his late wife's wedding dress with a touching note pinned to it.

"I wish any lady who takes this dress to have a life with her loved one, 56 years like I did, happy years," reads the note. "I was a lucky man to marry a lady like mine."

The dress (and note) turned up at a store that supports St. Gemma's Hospice, which provides care for medical patients suffering from cancer and other terminal illnesses. The note generated all kinds of local interest, so the hospice put the dress on eBay to make it available around the world. It worked, and now the beautiful lace wedding dress has gone viral.

Just over 6 days to go on eBay and it's at over 8,000 British pounds, or $12000+. All proceeds will go to charity.
What a lovely story!
