Homeless man begs for a Thanksgiving that he isn’t lonely; his wish comes true

One Virginia couple has set an example for others by exemplifying what the holiday season is all about.

The couple, Ashley and Cory LeMore, answered an ad posted on their local news’ Facebook page by a lonely homeless man looking to spend Thanksgiving with someone, WTKR reported.

Neal Shytles told WTKR that he has no family living close by and he spends the holidays by himself.

“I am lonely like 365 days a year, but Christmas and Thanksgiving are two of the worst days, and I really miss having some kind of family atmosphere around me,” he said.

The LeMores plan on traveling to Shytles’ town to pick him up and bring him to their home for a Thanksgiving celebration.

“I just look forward to having him in our house and a part of our family for the day,” Ashley LeMore told WTKR.

Shytles was overcome with joy and excitement at the news.

“I was crying when she called me and I had to excuse myself because I was emotional,” Shytles said.

“I love both you and your husband even though I haven’t met you,” he added. “Thank you so much. It means a lot to me.”

It looks like holiday dreams really can come true.
