The Royal Mail got a birthday card addressed to Heaven – what they did will give you all the feels
It’s hard enough for adults to cope with losing someone they love, but it can be a lot harder for children, especially on special days like Christmas or birthdays when they miss those people even more. When one 7-year-old boy’s departed dad’s birthday was approaching, he still wanted to send him a birthday card, so he did. To make sure the card got to Heaven, he wrote this:
In case that’s hard to see, it says
Can you take this to heaven for my dad’s birthday
His mum, Teri Crosland, shared the picture on Facebook, along with an update. It seems that the lovely people who work at the Royal Mail had dealt with the letter in the most sensitive and thoughtful way possible.
Now that’s what we call going above and beyond.
The post has been shared more than 10k shares on Facebook and was copied onto Twitter where it also got more than 11k retweets – in both places, it’s really giving people all the feels.
I'm a cynical bastard but this actually made me tear up. Warning to anyone who has lost a parent: this will get you. https://t.co/9WnXcRS7s3
