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, according to the New York Daily News
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. 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 dire cries of the elderly couple were a response to the bad news they saw on television – their primary companion.
The elderly couple was treated to a meal of spaghetti with butter.
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.
The gesture by a group of Rome’s finest generated over 65,000 likes and nearly 24,000 shares on Facebook.
