Aged widow forced to leave home, but neighbor purchased the house so she can move back home

While some may argue that the era of strong neighborhood relationships is a thing of the past, this story serves as a reminder that the art of being a good neighbor is alive and well.

Angie Tyma, an 89-year-old resident of Hudson, Florida, found herself in a tough spot when she learned that her home, which she had sold a few years prior but still resided in, was going into foreclosure due to the owner’s failure to pay the mortgage. Despite her determination to find a way to keep her home, Tyma was eventually evicted and left without a place to go.

However, her neighbors noticed her distress and rallied around her. Danielle Calder, one of Tyma’s neighbors, discovered the situation and went above and beyond by purchasing Tyma’s home and becoming her landlord to ensure she had a place to live.

When asked about her decision, Calder simply stated, “I didn’t need another house, but I needed her.” The act of kindness was not lost on Tyma, who was surprised by the gesture on her birthday and said, “I was in a state of shock. I was speechless. I couldn’t even talk.”

As Calder put it, “She’s the glue that holds the neighborhood together,” and her actions show that being a good neighbor is more than just a thing of the past.
