The letter to the boy read, "we succeeded in the delivery of your letter, to your dad in heaven."
The hardest thing for a little boy to experience is to lose someone they love. Jase Hyndman, now nine, sent a letter to his father in 2018. Jase, who is from West Lothian, lost his father and he wanted to send him a letter to heaven, to see how he was doing and to also wishing him a happy birthday. Sean Milligan, who works with The Royal Mail, felt the need to acknowledge the letter the little one sent to his father in heaven. So, Milligan wrote a letter to Jase, letting him know that his letter to his father James in heaven had made it through the rather "difficult" journey, reports BBC.
"I actually cannot state how emotional he is knowing his dad got his card," his mother, Teri Copland shared. "Royal Mail you've just restored my faith in humanity." In response to Jase's envelope requesting to be sent to "heaven", Royal Mail's Sean Milligan said, "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," the note added. "I will continue to do all I can to ensure delivery to heaven safely," concluded the note. It was initially shared on social media where it went viral, but now it seems to be deleted.
Jase and his 10-year-old sister Neive mark the occasion of their father's birthday every year since he died in May 2014. "He was overwhelmed and kept saying 'my dad really got my letter mum'... I've always told Neive and Jase even if you can't get anyone a present it's always nice to make sure you send a card at Christmas and birthdays," Teri Copland said. "I want people to realize that a small gesture of kindness can have such a fantastic impact on someone's life... Royal Mail actually took part and that gives me so much comfort." People were touched by Sean Milligan's kindness and took to Facebook to share their joy.

Meanwhile, we reported about a bar that has been leaving out notes to cars parked in their space overnight. No, it's got nothing to do with fines. In fact, they're little thank you notes because the cars in their parking space indicate that the customers chose to take a cab to go home instead of driving under the influence of alcohol. The Union Bar in Gering, Nebraska came up with this unique idea to encourage drunk people to not drive back home. As we reported earlier, people who find the note on their car can just go to the bar and show them the letter, and they will be rewarded with a $7 hamburger and fries for their wise choice.
