An 86 year old man has gone viral after writing a heartfelt message to the person he bought a VHS player from online.

The letter has been shared hundreds of thousands of times and when you read it you'll completely understand why!

"I found many old VHS tapes recently and wanted to see what is on them and realised I had no player. So I went to Ebay for the first time and discovered your offer." his letter began.

"I bought your VHS and you shipped it within a few days. The VHS looks new and unused. Amazing. I had some issues getting it going, which were mine and not the player. I am 86 and perhaps not up to my game but I do get there eventually. And I did, and discovered the VHS works perfectly."

"I watched tapes of my retirement party from 25 years ago, which I had never seen before. Jeez, we were young. Then a tape of my wedding with all the family and friends, many of which are no longer around. Then skiing trips, kids growing up, travel and most importantly the gentle maturing of my family. Each one more fun than the last. All thanks to your generous selling of the VHS player."

He then finished off his letter to the seller by saying that he "thought you would appreciate how much someone has enjoyed your offer."

After people finished reading the letter they were quick to respond to the original poster.

"Now I’m crying." one person simply stated.

"Just another reason why thank you notes are important. What a great story." added another.
