EDINBURG: A seven-year-old boy in Scotland received a touching surprise when he discovered that the letter he had written to his late father was “safely delivered” by the British postal service.
Recently, Jace Hindman wrote a letter for his father, his mother Teri Copland said Wednesday on Wednesday (November 28).
Not only did they know that they would soon receive a response from the Royal Mail, which said that their letter was delivered.
Response from Assistant Head of Delivery, Sean Milligan, Royal Mail said the delivery of the boy’s letter was “a difficult task avoiding stars and other galactic objects on the way to the sky”.
He added: “However, be sure that this important item of the mail was delivered … I know how important your mail is to you. I will continue to do my best to ensure delivery to heaven. ”
Copland said she was grateful for the kind gesture.
She wrote: “Actually, I can’t say how emotionally he knows that his dad received his card.
“You didn't have to make an effort to do this. You could just ignore it, but the fact that you did your best to that little boy you never met is such a beautiful thing. ”
She added: "Royal Mail, you just returned my faith in humanity."
According to the BBC, Jace and his 10-year-old sister Nave celebrate his father's birthday every year since his death in 2014.
Jace was “overwhelmed” when he learned that the letter was “delivered”, and continued to say: “My dad really had my mom's letter,” Copland told BBC
Since then, her social media post, via a letter from Royal Mail, has been transmitted over 250,000 times since Wednesday.
Copland added: "I want people to understand that a small gesture of kindness can have such a fantastic effect on someone's life … Royal Mail really took part, and it gives me so much comfort."
