49ers Patrick Willis sends flowers to 7-year-old who invited him to birthday

Not only is Patrick Willis an All-Pro linebacker for the San Francisco 49ers, he’s one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet.

To say Willis had a difficult upbringing (at least until he was high school age) would be a severe understatement, but Willis has always done what he could do to give back be it in a group or individual setting.

Another example of Willis’ giving spirit emerged recently after the defensive juggernaut was invited by a 7-year-old to her Frozen inspired birthday party.

Willis, unable to make it due to prior commitments didn’t want to disappoint the young lady, so he decided to send her flowers and a card for her special day.

Willis often does what he can for all fans, especially younger supporters and often times they don’t hit the news wire like this one. But still very cool to see either way.

Bay Area television station KTVU captured the moment when Elizabeth Penados read the letter Willis sent her.

The world needs more people like Patrick Willis.
