Police cook dinner for lonely elderly couple

ROME, Italy (WCMH) – The touching story of police in Rome keeping a lonely elderly couple company has gone viral.

Police went to an apartment after neighbors reported hearing loud crying form inside, WXIN reported.

According to a Facebook post from police, the couple has been together for 70 years and relies on television to keep them company since they don’t get many visitors. They were so upset by what they saw on the news that day that they screamed in despair.

Police came and found the couple, 94-year-old Michele and 84-year-old Jole in good health. Instead of simply leaving, the officers stayed and kept the couple company.

“This time, for the boys, there is a more difficult task to perform. There are two lonely souls to reassure,” reads a translation from the Facebook post.

The officers prepared a simple dinner of buttered noodles with cheese for the couple. The secret ingredient though, was their humanity.
