A five-year-old girl wrote a letter to her 93-year-old neighbour to make sure that he was ok during the lockdown that we currently find ourselves in.
In the letter Kirah said:
“Hello, my name is Kira. “I am 5 years old.
“I have to stay at home because of the coronavirus. I just wanted to check to see if you’re ok?
“I have drawn you a rainbow to remind you that you are not alone.
“Please write back if you can.
“From your neighbour at number 9”.
It wasn’t long until young Kirah got a response from her number just to let her know that he was ok and to thank her for sending the letter to him.
“I was so pleased to receive your message asking about my well being, and I am pleased to say that I am keeping well so far.
“Like you, I am in isolation, so it was so nice to hear of your concern for me.
“My name is Ron, and I am 93-years-old.
“I was the first person to move into the crescent in 1955, and I have been here ever since.
“The situation with coronavirus is very bad, and we must all do our very best to overcome it and hopefully come out of it in good health again.
“I thought your drawing of the rainbow was amazing and I am going to place it in my window for people to see.
“I would like to thank you again for writing to me, and I hope you will be able to be out from isolation soon.
“From Ron at No 24”.
The pictures of the letters were uploaded to Twitter by Ron’s grandaughter (@hey_im_ginger) with the caption:
“My Grandad is 93 and currently in isolation of course – but is in very good health – and he has received the most beautiful letter from his five-year-old neighbour, and he wrote back to her Just please read, it should make you smile”.
The tweet has been liked 85k times and has been retweeted over 14k times.
During these dark days, it is nice to actually be able to write about something that has put a smile on our faces.
