90-Year-Old is Confused When Young Neighbor Leaves a Note, Instantly Breaks Down in Tears

Before we reach our senior years, we are often so busy with our lives that we hardly ever get the chance to stop and think about the elderly folks who live right next to us. During life we can become consumed by work, our families and social lives, often forgetting about those who are at the point in life where they’ve lost several friends sometimes even spouse.

When Marleen Brooks came home to  find a letter from a nearby stranger, she learned how lonely life for a senior can be. The letter was from her 90-year-old neighbor, Wanda, who Marleen had never spoken to. In the letter, Wanda was asking Marleen to be her friend because she was so lonely and wanted someone to talk to. The letter read as follows:

“Would you consider becoming my friend? I’m 90 years old live alone. All my friends have passed away. I’m so lonesome and scared. Please, I pray for someone.”

Marleen immediately made cupcakes and headed over to Wanda’s house to meet her. As to be expected, Wanda was overjoyed when Marleen showed up at her front door.

“She’s such a sweet lady,” said Marleen, who quickly learned about Wanda’s isolation in a heartfelt conversation that the two had when they first met. Wanda went on to say…

“I hope you didn’t think I was stupid for writing you, but I had to do something. Thank you so much for coming over. I’ve lived here for 50 years and don’t know any of my neighbors.”

Marleen quickly learned a lot about the woman who had become her newest friend. Wanda has three sons, one of which passed away from cancer just a year ago. And her other two sons live far away so she never has a chance to see them. That alone can be devastating and so lonely that it feels debilitating. Among other ailments, Wanda has osteoporosis, congestive heart failure and is on an oxygen.

Marleen believed the letter and the situation were too endearing to not share with others, so she forwarded it to the local KTVU news anchor, Frank Somerville, who shared it on his Facebook page, along with Marleen’s comment…

“Came home to this note from a lady that lives down the street from me. Makes my heart sad, but on the bright side it looks like I will be getting a new friend.”

Frank and Marleen hope to spread the word about the loneliness and isolation that elderly people often feel. While many of us are hopping from one family event to another, we often forget to stop and think about how lonely those who live close to us are. We make more of an impact on others than we think we do and sometimes just spending a few moments every day with someone can make a huge difference.
