David Moyes has undoubtedly had a difficult time of things at Manchester United, but his efforts to write to fans on behalf of the club will surely win him some respect from supporters.

Moyes dropped a note to a Mrs. Fearnley last week, who had lost her Manchester United-supporting husband. On Twitter, @bueyb_mufc put up a copy of the letter:

Respect to David Moyes for this #Mufc

And this came just days after a letter from Moyes to another fan, this time congratulating them on their wedding:

Thanks Mr Moyes! :)

Moyes in this respect is carrying on a tradition at the club. Reports of Sir Alex Ferguson doing the same for families during his time as Manchester United boss is well-known.

In early 2013, for instance, the Daily Mirror reported his letter to the parents of a 20-year-old who'd died during his travels in Australia.
