"THIS WILL BRING TEARS TO YOUR EYES.............

Senior moment-beautiful!

Just when you have lost faith in human kindness, someone who teaches at Kean
Elementary in Wooster , Ohio 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 Kean Elementary:

God bless you for the beautiful radio I won at your recent senior citizens
luncheon. I am 84 years old and live at the Sprenger Home for the Aged.
All of my family has passed away. I am all alone now and it's nice to know
that someone is thinking of me. God bless 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 ass.

Thank you for that opportunity.

Sincerely, Edna"

I loved this! A huge giggle and an ending I never expected.
Don't ever mess with the elderly!

I always tell my kids that youth and exuberence has nothing on old age and treachery....
Thank you for the proof.

What would you attempt to do...if you knew you could not fail?
