Ammon News - A grandmother's sweet card to her grandson has left the internet in tears.

A man shared a picture of the birthday card his nan gave to him for his 47th birthday in a post on Reddit 's MadeMeSmile forum.

It was captioned: "My 98-year-old grandma has been making me birthday cards for years. This one is the most plain of them all, but meant the most."

In the image, the man's grandma had typed a sweet message out on a piece of plain paper and printed it off.

It reads: "Happy birthday [name redacted].

"You have blessed my life for 47 years.

"This will be my last time trying to write on computer and doing it as hands don't want to write and now memory going fast, but trying to do a birthday card for you my dear precious [name redacted].

"Love you so much, Grandma [name redacted]."

Reddit users were in bits over the heartfelt note and commented to say so, as one person wrote: "This hit me in the feels."

Another said: "Treasure this, forever."

A third shared a tip on how to make sure it stays in perfect condition as the years go by.

They said: "Get yourself an acid-free archival folder and keep that card in there and store it somewhere safe. That is priceless and beautiful. Thank you for sharing it with us."

While someone else suggested that he frame the card to keep it forever, writing: "It's a written record, undeniable evidence, of love.

"Trust me, when they've gone, there's nothing like it to reminisce about the times you had with them, the love you had for each other."

In the comments, the man shared more about his grandma.

He wrote: "She lost her husband, my 97-year-old grandpa this year. Makes me realise, especially with this card, that I will be losing her too.

"Both were rocks in my life.

"Sometimes you are lucky enough to have the best gma in the world."

Other users shared heartwarming stories of their own grandmas.

"Mine was the sweetest person you ever did meet. I never saw her say a mean word about anyone.

"She loved fully and was the only truly altruistic person I ever knew. I was fortunate to have known her so well.

"She never quite got the hang of computers except to play solitaire games though!"

And another user revealed: "I found a letter from my grandmother recently when cleaning out some things in our garage. It was from when I was struggling in school and she sent me some money to hire a tutor. She shared some of her struggles in school and said she would always find more if I needed it.

"I’ve kept the letter all these years, it’s been over 25, I think, since she sent it. She’s been gone for so long but that letter brought her back and filled me with a deep sense of being loved again."
