Jase Hyndman of Great Britain was just a toddler when his dad died in 2014. But that hasn’t stopped him and his older sister, Neive, from celebrating his birthday.

This year the now 7-year-old Jase wrote to his father, addressing a letter to him in heaven. And the Royal Mail delivered.




The British mail service took the postal carrier’s unofficial motto, “neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds,” up a few light years.

“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,” wrote Sean Milligan, the Royal Mail’s assistant delivery office manager, in a letter to Jase. “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.”

The boy was ecstatic, according to his mom, who expressed her gratitude on Facebook.

“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 his dad got his card,” wrote Teri Copland in a post that has been shared nearly 250,000 times. “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, and thank you, it honestly means the world to him.”

She signed off wishing them a Merry Christmas.
