regarding Andrew Baines, US Navy WWII

Classification: Query
My Mother received a letter (which I never knew about until after she passed away and I found it when going through her things in the house) from a friend of the above mentioned Sailor. They apparently was dating, I think they were engaged. The letter is handwritten, and has the "US Navy" logo on the top of the letter. It states that "Andy" died in a plane crash. The letter is not dated, nor do I have the envelope of which it was mailed.I do have a locket, it is heart shaped,with the US Navy logo on it, and it opens, but there is nothing inside.It took me a long time to figure out that fact that the letter and the locket, are probably pertaining to the same guy. However, I don't know who Andrew Baines is, and I am curious to know more about him, where he was from, what he looked like. I do not have much more information than what I have written here. Any help would be appreciated!! (by the way- my initial reaction was "Oh My gosh My mother had another life before she was married"!! LOL)I feel like this is something from a Lifetime Movie, or something...
Thanks for any help or ideas... I appreciate it!
