Imagine The Heavenly Reunion Happening RIGHT NOW!

Edith Shain, best known as the nurse kissing a sailor in the iconic photograph, has died at age 91. The photo was taken in Times Square on August 14th, 1945, when thousands converged there to celebrate victory over Japan.

Sadly, Shain never really found out who that sailor was. She came forward as the woman in the photo decades after it was snapped, and in 2008 she told the Daily News, "In retrospect, I should have said, 'Hey, wait a minute!' and gotten his name and number."
