Elderly Man Leaves 14 Years Worth of Books and Presents to 2-Year-Old Neighbor

If this story does not convince you to love thy neighbor, then I don’t know what to tell you.


In Barry, Vale of Glamorgan, a town in Wales, Ken, a neighbor to Owen and Caroline Williams for the last two years, on Monday evening, has passed, thus having his daughter deliver the news that presents were left for their two-year-old daughter Cadi to obtain fourteen years worth of gifts.

Mr. Williams couldn’t resist opening one of the presents, and it was a book, Christmas Eve At The Mellops’ by Tomi Ungerer.

“She was clutching this big bag plastic sack, and I thought it was rubbish she was going to ask me to throw out,” said Mr. Williams.

“But she said it was everything her dad had put away for Cadi. It was all of the Christmas presents he had bought for her. I brought it back in, and my wife was on FaceTime to her mum in Ireland. My wife started to tear up, and I started to tear up, and her mum started to tear up. It’s difficulty describing it because it was so unexpected. I don’t know how long he put them away whether it was over the last two years or whether he brought them towards the end of his life. “We can tell there’s some books, there’s three or four soft toys, maybe so Duplo,” he added.
