Lyn, who lives in Adelaide, Australia, first wrote Dolores, who lives in British Columbia, Canada, in 1960. They were both 10 years old at the time.
The pair became fast friends, sharing interests in music and hobbies throughout their adolescence and into adulthood.
As the physical letters transformed through the years into emails, text messages, and phone calls, the women continued to share milestones.
Earlier this month, Dolores decided to go on a "bucket list trip to Australia" to meet Lyn.
"She's the friend who I've had the longest," Lyn said. "Sixty years is pretty special."
