The note read: "Would you consider to become my friend. I'm 90 years old- live alone. All my friends have passed away. I'm so lonesome and scared. Please I pray for someone."

Marleen went over to her elderly neighbor’s house with a friend the next evening to introduce herself with cupcakes in hand.

Afterward, Marleen wrote to Frank Somerville of KTVU News to tell him what happened.

"Frank!

She's such a sweet lady!

And she was over the moon when we came over.

Wanda said:

'I hope you didn't think I was stupid for writing you, but I had to do something.

Thank you so much for coming over.

I've lived here for 50 years and don't know any of my neighbors.'

Wanda has 3 sons, one died last year of cancer.

The other two live far away.

She's 90 and and is on oxygen and has congestive heart failure, osteoporosis, among other ailments.

We brought her cupcakes (didn't have enough time with work to make the banana bread).

I also made sure she knew she can call us at anytime and that I'll be back to spend time with her!

I'm sure Wanda and I will have some great times."

Wanda's story has been shared by hundreds of people on Facebook.

"I love this story," Frank wrote. "And I'm so happy for Wanda. But as I said in my first post, there are so many others out there who are lonely just like Wanda.

I would ask that maybe you consider knocking on their door and saying hi. I know it would mean the world to them.

And who knows, maybe you'll make a new friend."
