Old woman was found living in an old car for years when they found her. They were shocked.
A concerned neighbor was startled to find out that the elderly woman who lived across from him had been living in her old car despite having a house.
Ed Miller and his elderly neighbor, Anna Wilde would often enter their cars at the same time each morning.
They would often exit at the same time as well at six. In the evening. One day, however, Ed had a couple of drinks with his friends and arrived home past midnight. He was surprised to see Mrs wild still inside her car fast asleep. Did she forget her keys aide thought to himself.
At that moment, he made a sudden realization that he had never seen. Mrs Wilde drive the car as she would always be busy fixing things for a couple of minutes as he drove away. He decided to take a closer look to see if she was okay before we continue.
Anna was all bundled up in the passenger seat with a thick blanket covering her body at the back. She had several bags of groceries. Why is she living out here? He asked him to self. Mrs Wilde’s house was a gorgeous Bungalow, which started to look more and more unattended. Since Anna’s husband, Charles died four years ago, Ed decided to go wake up his wife, so they could prepare the guest bedroom for their neighbor.
How could such a sweet old woman be living in her car? What happened? Ed’S wife Stacy asked he sighed. Echoing her question. I don’t know honey, but she isn’t sleeping in that car ever again.
You’Re with me on this decision right. He asked her. She nodded and asked him to go, get her as Ed walked outside he shivered it was cold and he couldn’t imagine how cold. Mrs Wilde was feeling he knocked on the window gently until she woke up at first. Her eyes widened until she realized it was a familiar face.
Mrs Wilde, it’s cold out here. Please come into our home. My wife made a cup of tea for you and we prepared a warm bed. Ed smiled, Mrs Wilde, still surprised, refused Ed sweet, don’t you worry about me? I am all right over here.
She replied Ed, refused to take no for an answer and told Mrs Wilde. He would stay out in the cold until she came with him after saying that Anna opened the door and got out of the car Ed helped her out and wrapped a blanket around her inside Stacy was waiting in the kitchen with a hot cup of tea. Thank you sweetheart. I used to prepare my husband, Charles a cup of tea. After he got home from work, she suddenly reminisced.
Mrs Wilde, you have a lovely home. Why have you been sleeping in your car? Stacy asked her. I don’t feel comfortable at home without Charles. She started you mean you haven’t been sleeping at home since Charles died, Ed asked surprised.
Well I used to come home, but everything at home reminds me of him. I didn’t want to be reminded of what I’ve lost, so I just decided to sleep in the car that way, I’m not reminded of his absence in my life. She said weeping quietly as she sipped the tea Stacy made. How do you take care of yourself that way, Stacy couldn’t help, but ask Anna then explained that she was a part of a gym club for senior citizens where she takes her daily showers. Why don’t you just sell the house, then?
Mrs Wilde Ed asked the questions. Wouldn’T stop coming as the husband and wife were curious about many things. Oh, I would love that, but the house is worn down. I haven’t maintained it in years. No one would buy it at a good price.
Mrs weld explained at that Ed revealed that he was an architect. He promised to look at the house first thing tomorrow morning and see what kind of work needs to be done. You are too kind thank you, sweet boy. She said giving him a hug true to his word, Ed checked out Mrs weld’s home the next day. He asked his assistants to come over and they were surprised to see how bad the house looked.
The whole house was covered in Gray, dust and spider webs hum from the ceilings on every corner. What’S worse, is the walls were covered with mold? We can’t be in here without protective equipment, Ed told his assistants and they changed to a pair of disposable suits and face masks. The mold looked toxic, so Ed decided to take a sample for them to study. Don’T you think we can just have a cleaning service scrub?
The walls clean his assistant asked him. Ed shook his head, this isn’t just mold. I feel this is toxic. We shouldn’t even be breathing in here without any masks. There should be a warning on the door.
Ed said it turns out toxic mold seeps through the wall and it could turn deadly. It’S a good thing. Mrs Wilde hasn’t been going in here. She would have died. Ed said shocked, his hunch was right and the lat results showed it was a dangerous type of mold.
The lab suggested that the house must be burned so that the mold would not spread to nearby houses. Dismantling it or tearing it down was simply not enough when Ed told Mrs Wilde the bad news. She was sad. However, she agreed to do whatever needed to be done and the fire department was called in to set the controlled fire. Anna watched, her House burn down and Ed was right beside her.
Mrs Wilde, you can live with us for as long as you want our home is yours. Ed said, Mrs Wilde gave him a reassuring smile. I know thank you Ed, but I do want to start again in my own small place. She hinted at that Ed decided to call the meeting among neighbors he let them know what happened to Mrs willd’s Place, saying she decided to burn it down to keep everyone else safe. They all agreed that they wanted to do something for Mrs Wilde and one of their neighbors.
A real estate agent said she might be able to sell the lot to someone with Ed’s help. They negotiated a good deal for Mrs Wilde. A developer took interest in the lot and decided to build several Assisted Living houses in the large plot of land. Aside from purchasing the land at a good price, the developer promised Mrs Wilde the best unit which she could live in for Life. In The End, thanks to Ed’s kindness and generosity, Mrs Wilde not only had a lot more money to her name, but she had a beautiful home right next to her best friends, Ed and Stacy.
What can we learn from this story? Sometimes it’s easy to miss things. If we’re not looking hard enough, Ed and Anna would always see each other every morning, but a did not realize Anna was living in her car things happen for a reason. Aside from being at peace, while sleeping in her car, it was a blessing that Anna stopped living in her house as it was filled with toxic mold.
