Aaron Williams made Christmas memorable for one Buffalo Bills fan

Aaron Williams made a lifelong fan on Christmas day.

Buffalo Bills safety Aaron Williams is out of action on the field due to a neck injury. Off the field, Williams is still making plays for Bills fans. On Christmas day, Williams dropped in on a Bills fan to deliver an autograph. Here's the story from Williams himself:


Here is what was attached with the picture:

Had the privilege of meeting this awesome family today. Got a letter from Carrie (girl in the purple) explaining how she got one of my cards, and wanted me to sign it so she could give it to her older brother as a Christmas gift. As I was reading she mentioned how she has Dyslexia and ADHD. Reading that really hit home, because I too have Dyslexia and ADHD. Instead of just sending it back in the mail, I went to their house after practice and surprised her and her whole family. Their story is incredible and to see Carrie and her family smile ear to ear while tearing up, just because I showed up made me so happy. I decided to personally hand her her brothers card. God made sure this happened in my life. #BlessedBeyondBelief #MerryChristmas

A simple autograph request turned into something great because of a letter that was enclosed with Williams' card. As the Bills safety mentioned, Carrie's letter hit home as she has ADHD and dyslexia, much like Williams himself. Williams' arrival at the house must have been a real shock for Carrie's family on Christmas day. Carrie's brother received his autographed card in-person from the safety in a moment that won't soon be forgotten. Based upon the picture, it seems as though everyone had a wonderful Christmas.

Athletes have a chance to make a positive impact upon their fans and Williams certainly made a positive impact for one family on Christmas day.
