Post­man, can you take this birth­day card to heaven?

Houston Chronicle Sunday - - NATION | WORLD -

LON­DON — A 7-year-old Scot­tish boy who sent a birth­day card to his father in heaven has re­ceived a heart­warm­ing re­ply.

A Royal Mail of­fi­cial re­sponded to Jase Hyn­d­man af­ter see­ing the card ad­dressed: “Mr. Post­man, Can you take this to heaven for my dad’s birth­day.”

The Royal Mail’s Sean Mil­li­gan wrote back, say­ing, “This was a dif­fi­cult chal­lenge avoid­ing stars and other galac­tic ob­jects on route to heaven. How­ever, please be as­sured that this par­tic­u­lar im­por­tant item of mail has been de­liv­ered.”

Jase’s mother, Teri Co­p­land, posted im­ages of the let­ters on Face­book, which have been shared more than 260,000 times.

Co­p­land says, “I ac­tu­ally can­not state how emo­tional he is know­ing his dad got the card. … You’ve just re­stored my faith in hu­man­ity.”
