Ask, and you shall receive!
Olive Veronesi, the 93-year-old woman whose “I Need More Beer!” sign went viral, was surprised on Monday with just that: 10 cases of beer from Coors Light.
“I can still kick a football and if you like, hit a home run!” Veronesi answered during the delivery when asked how she’s feeling, the brand tells PEOPLE.
Photos of the drop-off — which were taken while using social distancing precautions — show Veronesi gleefully holding up a can of Coors Light and a dry-erase board that read, “Got More Beer!”
In other snaps, she poses next to her new supply of the beverage while enjoying a can of the brew.
Last Thursday, Veronesi was photographed from a window holding up a can of beer in on hand and her dry-erase board in the other, which read “I Need More Beer!!”
“Olive Veronesi from Seminole, PA is doing her part to stay home and stay safe,” Pittsburgh CBS affiliate KDKA wrote in the caption of the photo shared on their Facebook page. “She’s sending this message to her neighbors and to her daughter.”
Another photo posted later by KDKA showed Veronesi standing outside her porch while holding two cans of Coors Light — and, once again, she was beaming with delight.
“It’s nice, something for a young lady,” Veronesi told the station.
Several commenters on the station’s Facebook page applauded Veronesi, and some even said they would try to send her some beer.
In Veronesi’s home state of Pennsylvania, there are at least 25,396 confirmed cases of COVID-19, with 608 deaths related to the virus. Nationwide, there are now at least 604,577 with 25,733 related deaths.
