MIDLAND, TX (WKBW) — A Midland, Texas man known as "Buffalo Dave" just received mail from the ultimate pen pal for any Bills fan, Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly.

7 Eyewitness News first reported on "Buffalo Dave" in mid-August, when the father of a woman who works at the assisted living facility where Dave lives sent in an image of Dave looking for pen pals.

The sign said Dave was looking for someone interested in the Bills, wings, hockey and reading. When Harold Fuller let us know about Dave's sign, he wrote, "in 1989 when I was 19 I had cancer and both Jim Kelly and Leonard Smith called me in Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester and it helped tremendously."

This time, it looks like Jim Kelly came through again! Fuller updated 7 Eyewitness News today, showing a signed picture Jim Kelly sent to "Buffalo Dave."
