A radio in a home for the aged

USA - 27.08.2008

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

Dear Faculty and Students,
God bless you for the beautiful radio I won at your recent senior citizens'luncheon.
I am 84 years old and live at an assisted home for the aged. All of my family has passed away. I am all alone now and it's nice to know someone is thinking of me. God bless you for your kindness to an old forgotten lady. My roommate is 95 and always had her own radio. Before I received this one, she would never let me listen to hers, even when she was napping.

The other day, her radio fell off the night stand and broke into a lot of little pieces. It was
awful and she was in tears. She asked if she could listen to mine, and I said "fuck you".

Thank you for that opportunity.
