    My parents have lived next door to these neighbors for almost my entire life. I was best friends with their daughter until she passed of a massive heart attack a about 5 years back. My dad and her dad had a falling out over a misunderstanding a few years ago. They haven't spoken since. When my dad's generator wasn't working the other day, he tried to help him. They let my dad and stepmom charge their phones and call me. All is good in their world now. Yay! A forty-year friendship is on the mend.

    It's truly amazing how a crisis will bring people together. Good for them.

    It was eye opening to see people reach out to each other. I really didn't have a negative interaction with people. Everyone went out of their way to make sure no one was isolated or hungry. It's just such a waiting game and people lose patience. Loth, I'm so glad that your dad and mom have someone who cares to check in on them.
