Illustration for article titled The Ultimate Hoarder? This Woman Has Kept Her Late Husband’s Letters For Over 60 Years

Okay, there are a lot of weirdos in the world, but when do things just plain cross the line?

This widow’s one-bedroom apartment might just hold the answer. Meet 85-year-old Melinda Hayworth, a category 5 mega-hoarder who has kept her late husband’s love letters for over 60 years and says she has no plans to ever throw them out!


Whoa. Two words: Textbook. Crazy.

Melinda isn’t just your average obsessive: She’s been holding onto her dead husband’s letters since the day she received them. She stacks them all in a shoebox under her bed and refuses to let anyone, even her family, touch them. And, uh, psycho alert: She reads them every year on his birthday, even though she has them memorized.

Plus, get this: Ever since her husband died, this total basket case has brought the letters with her every time she’s moved, along with the yellowed old newspaper containing their wedding announcement.

Honestly, how much of this garbage does she really need? They’re all so old and illegible at this point that no one’s going to buy them anyway.


It’s just stuff, lady. Let it go!
