"A few weeks ago, my 7-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 that 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 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. 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 x (Teri Copland/Facebook)
The envelope in the first photo reads, "Mr. Postman, Can you take this to heaven for my dad's birthday? Thanks." The letter in response says, "Dear Jase, While we've been delivering your post, we became 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. However, please be assured that this particular important item of mail has been delivered. Royal Mail's priority is to get our customers mail delivered safely. I know how important your mail is to you. I will continue to do all I can to ensure delivery to heaven safely. Yours sincerely, Sean Milligan, Assistant Delivery Office Manager"
