This is one classy move by the Philadelphia Flyers.

A Redditor's father recently passed away, and he was a huge Flyers fan. Even though the man wasn't a season-ticket holder, Flyers captain Claude Giroux sent this letter on behalf of the entire organization to his family to thank him for his years of support. You can see the letter below.
