- 90 years old woman sends a note to Marleen Brooks, her neighbor.
- She lived there for 50 years but never got to know any neighbors.
- She combated her isolation and loneliness through sending a note asking for someone to be her friend. She wasn’t disappointed and two new friends came and brought cupcakes.
KAMI learned this story of an old woman, Wanda, who sent a note to a neighbor asking to be her friend.
On April 25, Marleen Brooks came home and was welcomed with a note from her 90 years old neighbor.
The note says:
"Would you consider to become my friend. I'm 90 years old- live alone and all my friends have passed away. I'm lonesome and scared." -Wanda
Marleen wasn't going to let this old woman wait any longer. She shared the letter with her friend. Later, she went out to buy cupcakes and together with her friend, they set foot to the woman's house.
Marleen wrote to Frank about this encounter.
Frank! She's such a sweet lady! And she was over the moon when we came over.
Wanda told her, "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 also made sure that Wanda knew she can call her new found friends anytime and that she'll be back to spend more time with her.
She is pretty sure that they will have some great times together.
