SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — San Francisco 49ers star linebacker Patrick Willis is known for interacting with fans on social media and has made even more fans by his response to a 7-year-old girl who invited him to her birthday party.

Elizabeth Penados of Suisun City sent Willis a hand-drawn invitation letter to her birthday party on April 23rd, saying “I am your biggest fan.”

Willis responded with a tweet showing an image of the letter, and calling it the “best invitation ever” from his “soon to be 7yr old friend’”

While Willis was unable to make a personal appearance at the “Frozen”- themed party, he instead sent a bouquet of red roses and a birthday note to Elizabeth.

Happy birthday Elizabeth! I am sorry I couldn’t make it today but I wanted to wish you a day full of fun! Thanks for being a great fan, I truly appreciate your support! – Patrick

Happy birthday to One of my most youngest precious fans in the world Elizabeth. .
