Royal Mail makes Ella’s day with a re­ply from her ‘Mummy in Heaven’

Daily Mail - - Brexit In Crisis - Daily Mail Re­porter

IT WAS a Mother’s Day card to melt the heart – a mes­sage of love from a griev­ing lit­tle girl to her ‘Mummy in Heaven’.

When Ella Len­non, four, put the note in a post­box, she never dreamed she would re­ceive a re­ply. But in a touch­ing ges­ture, a staff mem­ber at Royal Mail de­liv­ered Ella a letter from her mother, say­ing how proud she was of her.

Her aunt, Linda Ross, said: ‘On my sis­ter’s first heav­enly Mother’s Day, Ella sent her mummy a card. To­day a kind stranger from Royal Mail used their time to re­ply and make a lit­tle girl so happy.’ She added: ‘Her face lit up with the big­gest smile. Just shows the amaz­ing peo­ple in this world! Can’t thank you enough.’

Ella, from Kil­marnock in East Ayr­shire, lost her mother Jen­nifer in De­cem­ber, re­port­edly due to a brain tu­mour. She sent her a De­spi­ca­ble Me-themed card which, in a ref­er­ence to the film series’ Min­ion mas­cots, said: ‘You’re one in a min­ion Mum.’ Her mes­sage on the en­ve­lope read: ‘To Mummy in heaven, Happy Mother’s Day. I love you, Ella x.’

Two days later, a letter came back. It said: ‘To my beau­ti­ful Ella. Thank you so much for my very spe­cial Mother’s Day card. You’re one in a min­ion to me and I love you very, very much. Mil­lions and bil­lions and tril­lions is how much I love you! You are grow­ing up to be a very clever and spe­cial big girl and I am so proud of you, and even though I am in heaven I watch over you ev­ery day! Lots of love, hugs and kisses, Mummy.’

The letter’s en­ve­lope has the re­turn ad­dress of ‘1 An­gel Gate, In the clouds, Heaven.’

Ella’s fa­ther, Dean, wrote on so­cial me­dia: ‘I would like to thank the kind-hearted per­son at the Royal Mail.’

Twit­ter users were moved by Ella’s story. One wrote ‘I just cried’, while an­other said: ‘I’m sob­bing! This is beau­ti­ful.’
