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:

And this came just days after a letter from Moyes to another fan, this time congratulating them on their wedding:
Thanks Mr Moyes! :) pic.twitter.com/nZYWQf2as3— Darren (@thedevilstweets) March 22, 2014
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.
