If you’ve ever written or received a letter then you know it’s one of the best feelings on this planet. The joy and thrill of owning a heartfelt note is priceless. This slow and less stressful form of communication surely helps you connect with yourself and others.
Speaking of which, a five-year-old girl wrote a letter to her 93-year-old neighbor amid the coronavirus lockdown. The little girl inquired about the elderly man’s health and well-being as he is self-isolating alone, reports News18. She wrote to him to reassure him that he was not alone.
Have a look at the heartwarming letters shared by the old man’s granddaughter:

The 93-year-old was self-isolating following the Government’s advice for over 70s to stay at home, reports the Mirror. He promptly replied to his neighbor’s letter informing her that he was doing okay. He also wrote a little about himself and thanked the child for her kindness.
Many people were touched by this beautiful exchange between the child and the elderly neighbor:
This is so lovely… shows there needs to be no gap between generations. We can learn a lot from our young and our elderly if we just take the time ❤️

Thank you for sharing, that's lovely. I do hope when this is over they get to have tea together, or an ice cream. 🥰

It’s so lovely for a young child to be thinking of an older person – I hope these relationships are maintained when the world gets back to normal. This is what makes us civilised good people – respect for others! 😍😍😍

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. ❤️😊

My sister's house owners have a daughter, Anna. She plays with my sister and hangs out at her place from time to time. Since the lockdown, they are all maintaining distance.
So they leave each other notes, doodles and messages at regular intervals during the day. 🙂♥️ pic.twitter.com/rF8LVnPJqC
