Elderly woman who lost her husband and home in one day ‘adopted’ by neighbor, gets old house rebuilt by community

In January 2021, Gean LeVar of Glendale, Arizona, went through the darkest moment of her life. She lost her house and her 58-year-old husband on the same day.

The cops had to condemn her home because of the deplorable living conditions they discovered there. The widow also had no relatives or children to turn to.

When Carmen Silva learned about Gean's situation, she hardly recognized her. She didn't consider it to be a cause not to help her, though.

She reportedly said to Gean, "Don't worry, we'll fix it," according to CBS News.

The Silvas have eight kids and a three-bedroom home. No matter how crowded they were already, they were happy to make place for one more.

In order to provide their new adopted granny with a cozy bed, Carmen's boys gave up their bed and slept on the sofa.

She claims that now that she has a family, she appears to be quite happy.

Carmen may not agree with those who believe she went too far in her neighborliness.

As a father, I've always instilled in my kids the value of looking after their elders.

Gean claims that her new family means the world to her.

On the official CBS News Facebook page, Gean's story was posted, and many people were moved by the Silva family's selfless support of their neighbor. Their observations are as follows: "The most giving individuals are generally the ones who have the least."

The very finest. The children and relatives that gave up so much for the old person have my deepest sympathy. A new house should be built for the children. They are under the care of God. "That is the main focus. Nothing is more lovely than kindness. You should treat others how you would like to be treated.

A nonprofit organization called "Operating Enduring Gratitude" that assists Arizona soldiers and their families heard her tale and decided to help.
