Seven-year-old writes letter to Kyle Williams

Friday January 27th, 2012

San Francisco 49ers punt returner Kyle Williams had two costly fumbles in the NFC Championship game and he has received his share of criticism -- and threats -- from the 49er faithful. A Los Angeles seven-year-old, however, was so upset after the San Francisco loss, that he decided to write Williams a letter -- to make him feel better.

Owen Shure told his father after the game that he was upset about the loss, and his father asked him to think about how Kyle Williams felt. From that, the boy wrote Williams a letter.

Here's the note, reprinted in full:

Dear Mr. Williams:

We just watched the Playoff game. I feel really bad for you but I wanted to tell you that you had a great season. you sould be very proud, so I wanted to say thank you.

I am your #1 FAN!
