Police Praised After Cooking Pasta for Elderly Couple Heard Crying in Apartment From Loneliness

From the Daily Mail:

Italian police officers in Rome performed an extraordinary act of kindness that melted hearts on social media over the weekend – cooking pasta for the benefit of an elderly couple whose cries of loneliness pierced the hearts of their neighbors.

Cops responded to a distress call from neighbors of Michele, 94, and Jole, 89, who have been married almost years and who rarely receive visitors.

The dire cries of the elderly couple were a response to the bad news they saw on television – their primary companion.

‘Attacks, abused children in a kindergarten…Jole wonders why [there is] so much evil’, the Rome police wrote in a Facebook post.

‘It is not always easy life. Especially when the city empties and the neighbors are away on holiday. Sometimes loneliness dissolves into tears.’

Police who responded to the call noticed that the couple did not have much food in their home, so they decided to roll up their sleeves and pitch in the best way they knew how – cooking spaghetti.

The elderly couple was treated to a meal of spaghetti with butter and parmesan, according to the New York Daily News.

‘There is not a crime’, the police wrote on Facebook. ‘Jole and Michele are not victims of scams and no thief entered the house — there is no one to save’.

‘This time, for the boys, there is a more daunting task — two lonely souls who need reassuring. They understand that just a little human warmth will restore tranquility to Jole and Michele.’

Just to be safe, the police summoned an ambulance to the home to make sure that Jole and Michele were of good health before chowing down.

Hopefully, these officers will keep in touch with this couple so that the loneliness does not set back in. There is really no substitute for a good support network and that’s clearly something these two need.
