To know if her 93-year-old neighbour was doing fine in Coronavirus lockdown, a five-year-old girl wrote a letter to him asking him about his health and well-being and the letter exchange between the two is nothing less than heartwarming.
A Twitter user, the old man's granddaughter, shared the letters on the microblogging website and wrote, “My Grandad is 93 and currently in isolation of course - but is in very good health - and he has recieved the most beautiful letter from his 5-year-old neighbour and he wrote back to her. Just please read, it should make you smile”.

The letter, which has got more than 42,000 likes, has the granddad advising the little one to stay indoors. In the letter, he mentioned how he was the first person to move into the area.
He also tells the girl that he has put her rainbow drawing on the window for passers-by to see. Moreover, he also thanked the neighbour for the letter and hoped for the isolation, which has been imposed due to the widespread of COVID-19, to end soon.
As of now, more than 13 lakh people have tested positive for the disease while over 74 thousand people have lost their lives due to the disease.
It comes as no surprise that Twitteratis could not resist showering all their love and awe in the comments of the post. Some of the reactions included:
this is so lovely. I used to chat to a lovely man who was recovering in a convalescent home near my house when i was about 8 or 9. he was just lovely and we kept in touch by writing to each other even after he went home. this reminded me of that. ❤️😊— Fiona Shearer (@EQIMSouthHC) April 6, 2020

Your grandad's handwriting looks just like my grandads did. He used to write us letters or messages in cards. I love that this has made me think of him ❤️— Michelle (@Mich_G_123) April 6, 2020
