According to a report by the British Sun on the 22nd, John Lister, a 101-year-old man from Norfolk County, once worked as a gunner in World War II. He escaped the baptism of artillery fire but failed to escape the virus.
In March this year, John and his 92-year-old wife Ira were infected with the novel coronavirus at the same time. Poison, the wife died unfortunately.
In an interview with the media at the nursing home, John couldn’t help but cry, saying that since his wife left to the reserve feeling lonely, “sometimes I stay in the room all day, the only chance I can see others is when they deliver me food.”
After the broadcast of the program, kind-hearted people from all over the world sent cards and Christmas wishes to the elderly, hoping that the elderly would no longer be lonely, with a total of more than 7,000.
John also received a special Christmas gift, a jersey signed by his favorite Norwich Football Club.
Norwich Football Club goalkeeper Tim Krull said: “I hope our little move can help to touch the old man’s sadness.” John said that he was in a better mood now, and the letters and gifts brought him great comfort.
