    Default Old People are Great

    This will warm your heart. Just when you have lost faith in human kindness.

    Someone who teaches at a middle school in Safety Harbor, Florida,forwarded
    the following letter.

    The letter was sent to the principal's office after the school had sponsored a luncheon for the elderly. An old lady received a new radio at the lunch as a door prize and was writing to say thank you.

    This story is a credit to all humankind.

    Forward to anyone you know who might need a lift today.


    Dear Safety Harbor Middle School:

    God bless you for the beautiful radio I won at your recent Senior Citizens
    Luncheon.

    I am 84 years old and live at the Safety Harbor Assisted Home for
    the Aged. All of my family has passed away. I am all alone and I want to
    thank you for your kindness to an old, forgotten lady.

    My roommate is 95 and has always had her own radio; but before I received one, she would never let me listen to hers, even when she was napping.

    The other day her radio fell off the nightstand and broke into a lot of pieces. It was awful and she was in tears. She asked if she could listen to mine, and I told her to kiss my ***.

    Thank you for that opportunity.


    Sincerely,
    Edna

    If that was here in K-town, I'd think it was one of my clients!
