Fun Story of the Week: Elderly and the Radio

Here's a story of the week to make you smile. (Thanks to our friend Elvina for sharing it): 

This letter was sent to a Principal's office after Kean Elementary School had sponsored a luncheon for the elderly. An elderly lady received a new radio at the lunch as a door prize and was writing to say thank you.  
    
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 night stand and broke into a lot of pieces.  It was awful and she was in tears. Her distress over the broken radio touched me and I knew this was God's way of answering my prayers. 
   She asked if she could listen to mine, and I told her to kiss my ass. 
Thank you for that opportunity. 
Sincerely, 
Agnes 

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
