WOMAN FOUND DEAD IN APARTMENT FOR THREE YEARS WITH TELEVISION ON

THE LIFE OF JOYCE  AND HOW  HER DEAD BODY WAS FOUND IN HER APARTMENT AFTER TWO YEARS UNNOTICED WITH TELEVISION ON

This is the true-life story of  someone and a revelation of the lesson to learn from a true-life story

 In December of 2003, Joyce Vincent died of an apparent asthma attack in her north London flat. The television was left on. The mail continued to be delivered. Her rent was set up to be automatically deducted from her bank account. The days rolled by and no one noticed she was gone.

Those days turned into weeks and the weeks into months. There were large trash dumpsters on the side of the building next to her unit, so the neighbors never thought much of the smell emanating from her flat. The floor was full of noisy kids and teenagers and no one questioned the constant thrum of television noise in the background.

Eventually, Joyce’s bank account dried up. Her landlord sent her letters of collection. These letters, like the others, simply fell into the stacks scattered about her floor. They went unanswered. Finally, with more than six months of overdue rent, the landlord got a court order to forcibly remove her from the premises. The bailiffs broke down the door, and it was only then her body was discovered. By then, it was January 2006, more than two years after she passed away.

At that time, nobody ever came looking for Joyce Vincent. No family. No friends. No co-workers, not even neighbors knocked on the door to see if things were all right. Nobody called. Nobody checked in. imagine not seeing your neighbor for good two years and still not be concerned about him or her.  She was 38-years-old when she died.

This story is not funny and could be reflected upon. It sounds strange and impossible that entire years could go by with no one noticing a person has died around you. Yet, these sorts of scenario happen frequently.

The person lives alone. They lose touch with family and friends. They never meet their neighbors. They stay shut in with their television or computer for years at a time. The world moves on as if they are no longer there until one day, they are no longer there. 

Let’s do our little to keep the human touch & connection. Let's not fall too apart. Is there anyone that you/we haven't heard from for a while? Can someone give such mates a call/visit or a check on such person as you may be saving a life from? Also, don't just allow people with terminal diseases to be living alone just like that without any help. Take your health very seriously and live good

MAKE IT A POINT OF DUTY TO  BE YOUR BROTHERS/SISTER' KEEPERS. LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOUR AS YOU  LOVE SELF

Thanks
