CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas -- Two women have finally met face to face after being pen pals for decades.

Audry Sims lives in Australia and Norma is from Corpus Christi.

The pair began writing each other 74 years ago for a school project.

After all the letters, Sims came to Texas on Tuesday for their very first visit.

“I think we've got parallel families. We're both married and divorced and married again, and it’s sort of almost the same,” Sims said.

The women estimated they've written about 3,000 letters back and forth.
