At the age of 72 when everyone expects a comfortable life, Ms. Ella, a military widow from Las Vegas, Nevada is struggling to care for her great-grandchildren and collapsing home. When she felt her parenting days were completed after raising her kids and several of her grandkids, she found herself raising her six great-grandchildren too.
Ms. Ella’s home, however, experienced a Christmas miracle, all thanks to her best friend Alicestine Miller also known as Ms. Alice, who lives in California, never stopped caring for her best friend. Ms. Alice reached out to the Fox 5 Surprise Squad to assist a friend in need. Ms. Ella was overcome with emotions when the Surprise Squad answered the phone and astonished her at the front door.
When the Surprise Squad enquired about her great-grandchildren, she said, “Oh Lord, they mean so much to me.” “They’re my heart.” Ms. Ella refused to tell why she had brought her great-grandchildren in only that she needed to save them.
Ms. Alice was flown in by the Surprise Squad, and after the tears had dried, they have whisked away for a spa day. In their absence a truckload of new furniture, carpets, children’s beds, and even decorations for Christmas eve was brought by the team.
Then the workers did some essential upgrades and maintenance. Ms. Ella’s home was brimming with new furniture, beds for the kids and gifts.
There was a $500 gift card also for each of them.
Ms. Ella cried, “They’re going to have a fit.” When Ms. Ella’s great-granddaughter experienced the view of her revised home, she exclaimed, “It’s a tr-emendous Christmas miracle.” But that didn’t end here: Ms. Ella’s full rent was paid for the coming year, thanks to the Surprise Squad. In the video below, you can see Ms. Ella’s beautiful reaction.
