Last week, Rome police were called to an apartment building after someone called to report loud shouting and crying. It was coming from the home of 84-year-old Jole and her 94-year-old husband Michele. The couple had both started crying after watching the news on TV… Jole asked her husband why there was so much hate in the world. While the officers were investigating the noise complaint, they learned Jole and Michele had been married for 70 years and often felt extremely lonely. They also noticed there wasn’t much food in the house, so one of the officers decided to make them a proper pasta dinner.
While the couple ate, a few officers sat down to chat “the couple told the officers of a life spent together, but also of how their loneliness was, at times, so suffocating with only a television to keep them company.” Rome Police posted on their Facebook Page. You can read more about the story here
