Post office says it delivered boy’s “letter to dad in heaven”


A boy who sent a birthday card to his dad “in heaven” received a touching reply from the post office, saying it had delivered the letter.

7-year-old Jase Hyndman, of West Lothian, Scotland, sent a letter addressed to the Royal Mail with a handwritten note that read, “Mr. Postman, can you take this to heaven for my dad’s birthday, thanks.”

Jase’s father died in May 2014, and every year, he and his 10-year-old sister Neive, mark the day to remember their father, according to the BBC.

This year, officials from the Royal Mail sent a note back to Jase, letting him know his wish was granted.

“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.”

Jase’s mother, Teri Copeland, shared the letter on Facebook, where it has been shared more than 441,000 times since it was posted Wednesday morning.
