Earlier this month, 7-year-old Jase Hyndman of West Lothian, Scotland mailed a birthday card to his father in Heaven. Since his beloved dad passed away four years ago, he was stunned when he got a response.
Jase did not put an address on his letter, instead writing, “Mr. Postman, can you take this to heaven for my dad’s birthday. Thanks.”
When assistant delivery office manager Sean Milligan from the United Kingdom’s Royal Mail service saw the letter, he decided to do something that many are praising him for: he sent the little boy a response!
“Dear Jase,” the letter read. “While we’ve been delivering your post, we’ve become aware of some concerns. So I just wanted to take this opportunity to contact you about how we succeeded in the delivery of your letter, to your dad in heaven.
This was a difficult challenge avoiding stars and other galactic objects on route to heaven. I will continue to do all I can to ensure delivery to heaven safely.”
Both Jase and his mother, Teri Copland, were incredibly touched and overwhelmed when they received the response. Teri decided to post the letter on social media, where it has quickly gone viral.
“I actually cannot state how emotional he is knowing his dad got his card,” she wrote on Facebook. “You didn’t have to make the effort to do this you could have just ignored it, but the fact that you have made the effort for a little boy you’ve never met is such a lovely thing to do.
Royal Mail, you’ve just restored my faith in humanity and thank you – it honestly means the world to him.”
This just goes to show how an act of kindness can make a huge difference in the life of someone else! God bless Sean for taking the time to make a little boy’s day!
