The worth and value of human life and the genuine love and memories shared with someone doesn’t end after they’ve passed away.
And in England, a seven year old boy whose father apparently passed away misses his dad so much he sends him letters in heaven. He sent a birthday letter to his father and wanted to know if the postman would deliver it. He was comforted when he got an answer back.
Teri Copland said her 7-year-old son, Jase, received a lovely reply from the U.K.’s Royal Mail service after dropping off his unique letter at the post office.
The mom posted a photo of her son’s card to his dad on Facebook Wednesday. Instead of writing a mailing address, Jase wrote instructions for the mailman across the the envelope: “Mr. Postman, can you take this to heaven for my dad’s birthday. Thanks.”
Copland then posted a second photo of the reply letter Jase received. “Dear Jase,” the letter from Royal Mail 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 the letter to your dad in heaven. This was a difficult challenge avoiding stars and other galactic objects on route to heaven,” the letter continued.
Royal Mail assured Jase that the card was delivered and told him it is their priority to get customers’ mail where it needs to go. “I will continue to do all I can to ensure delivery to heaven safely,” said the letter signed by Sean Milligan, assistant delivery office manager for Royal Mail.
“I actually cannot state how emotional he is knowing his dad got his card,” Copland wrote in her Facebook post. “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.”
