Eddie Botha: Busy Ness







#TwinkleTwinkleArtisticStory

There is a lovely story in Northampton, the United Kingdom about Zoë Fierro and her granddad - Ronald Smith. A letter for Zoë from Smith, arrived 22 years after it was first posted.

Fierro's granddad sent a thank you letter, it was posted in June 1998 a few weeks after Mr Smith's birthday in May. When the letter, that had a second-class stamp on it, arrived on Tuesday, she recognised his handwriting straight away.

As Smith died 21 years ago, she was left amazed and thought someone playing a joke with her. She skipped right to the end to check and it was signed 'love from grandad'.

The letter said:

"Zoë

For your card and vouchers, very much appreciated.

Love from

Grandad"
