An adorable little boy wrote a heartbreaking birthday card to his dad in heaven—and got the most tear-jerking response from the postman.
Seven-year-old Jase Copland, from West Lothina, penned the letter to his daddy, and wrote on the front of the envelope, “Can you take this to heaven for my dad’s birthday?”
His mom, Teri Copland, was so taken aback when a reply from the Royal Mail came through the door, which said it had “avoided starts and galactic objects” to deliver the card.
She posted the note on Facebook and thanked them for the moving gesture which made her “emotional” son happy.
The reply from Royal Mail that means the world to the little Jase.
Jase lost his dad, James Hyndman, in 2014, and celebrates his dad’s birthday every year with his 10-year-old sister Neive.
The little boy asked the Royal Mail to take the heartbreaking letter to his daddy in heaven.
Teri wrote, “A few weeks ago my seven-year-old son posted this card to his dad in heaven and today he got a lovely reply from the postman.
“I actually cannot state how emotional he is knowing his dad got his card.
“You didn’t have to make the effort to do this you could have just ignored it but the fact that yous 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 please share this so all the staff at Royal Mail know just how grateful we are. Thanks and Merry Christmas.”
“I want people to realise that a small gesture of kindness can have such a fantastic impact on someone’s life… Royal Mail actually took part and that gives me so much comfort,” she told the BBC.
We think this is the sweetest gesture ever. Well done Royal Mail!
