Sunday Mail (UK) - - Lesley Roberts -

If we could pause for a mo­ment while dry­ing our eyes, we’d have a round of ap­plause for Sean Mil­li­gan, as­sis­tant de­liv­ery man­ager for Royal Mail in Bath­gate.

The ten­der-hearted postie wrote to re­as­sure a griev­ing lit­tle boy called Jase that his let­ter to his late daddy re­ally did reach him in Heaven. “This was a dif­fi­cult chal­lenge avoid­ing stars and other galac­tic ob­jects,” he wrote. “I will con­tinue to do all I can to en­sure de­liv­ery to Heaven safely.”

It made seven-yearold Jase’s day and it touched his mother Teri’s heart.

“Royal Mail, you’ve just re­stored my faith in hu­man­ity and thank you,” she said. Tears again? Me too. Just a small ges­ture, with such a big ef­fect.

At the busiest time of year, Sean took the time to get it just right. Send­ing kind­ness through the mail: A les­son for us all this Christ­mas.
