Jase Hyndman was a mere toddler when his father passed away but the little boy still thinks of his dad often. He writes him letters often and Dad has never left his thoughts.
He and his sister, ten-year-old Nieve, are always thinking of ways that they can keep their father’s memory alive. Jase may only be seven but he is as thoughtful as they come. He even wrote a birthday card for his father!
As Jase’s mom, Teri, shared on Facebook, the young boy decided to add a few instructions, so that the postman would know that the card needed to be delivered to Heaven.
The boy dropped the letter in his West Lothian, Scotland mailbox and went about his life as he normally would. “Mr Postman, can you take this to Heaven for my dad’s birthday. Thanks,” the note read, in part.
Jase probably did not expect to get a reply but he was in for quite the surprise. A letter arrived a few weeks later and the family was left stunned. Sean Milligan, the assistant delivery office manager of the Royal Mail, had written the return note. We are totally blown away by this one, so just imagine how this little boy must have felt.
“Dear Jase,” the letter read. “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 en 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 was happy with the reply and his mother was so moved that she decided to share the story on her Facebook page.
“I actually cannot state how emotional he is knowing his dad got his card…” Teri said. “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.”
