The holiday season is when people reconnect with their loved ones. We make the time to go and see all of the family and friends who we haven't seen in a while, and it's always a nice time.
However, some people are unable to see their loved ones. When we lose someone we love, we never stop thinking about them, whether it's for the holiday season, a special occasion, or even just a regular day.
When a very young child loses someone they love, they are going to have a hard time dealing with it, but one seven-year-old boy found a way to cope and his story has warmed the hears of thousands of people.
His mother Teri Copland, shared the post on Facebook, revealing that her son Jase had written a letter to his father in honor of his birthday. He wanted to send it to him in heaven, so he wrote a little note on the envelope and sent it off in the mail.
It reads: "Mr. Postman, Can you take this to Heaven for my dad's birthday? Thanks."
While a lot of people would just ignore the letter from the child, the Assistant Delivery Officer Manager Sean Milligan, actually took the time to write back to the young boy to reveal that he did everything he could to ensure his letter was delivered. His response 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 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 customer's 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.
The post has been shared hundreds of thousands of times since it was posted just two days ago, and received thousands of comments from people who are absolutely stunned by what this postman did for this child.
It's always nice to see such a sweet thing happening out in the world, especially so close to the holiday season. I'm sure all of us have a loved one in heaven we wish we could write to, and I guess now that Sam Milligan knows the way, we can.
