Thanks to Skype and iPhones, it's fairly simple to communicate with loved ones across the globe. But, sometimes a heart emoji isn't quite enough to show just how much you miss someone. Sometimes, you want to express emotion in a way that's more lasting. So, it's heartwarming to learn that not everyone is choosing the digital approach to relationships.
