Boy sends postcard to his "dad in heaven" and gets an answer
Teri Copland, a mother of two from Bathgate, Scotland, took to Facebook to share the touching card her son Jase got from the Royal Mail.
Seven-year-old Jase sent his father, who passed away in 2014, a birthday letter. The boy asked the postman to make sure his father “in heaven” received the card.
Soon after sending it, Teri got a letter from the Royal Mail. In it, they assured that Jase’s card was “delivered safely.” While the simple fact of taking their time to send back a letter is impressive, the content of it made the story viral in no time.
THE CONTENT OF THE LETTER
Sam Milligan, the person who signed the letter, wrote that even though it was a difficult task, they successfully delivered the card. Sam went on to explain that they had to avoid stars and other “galactic objects en route to heaven.”
“However please be assured that this particular important item of mail has been delivered. Royal Mail's priority is to get out customers' mail delivered safely. I know how important your mail is to you. I will continue to do all I can to ensure delivery to heaven safely,” finished the letter.
Once Teri and her family got that card, she made a Facebook post revealing that Jase got very emotional when he learned that his father got his letter. She added that Royal Mail restored her faith in humanity.
Jase’s father, James, passed away in 2014 at the age of 28. According to Teri, the man was an amazing father with a great character. She finally said that Jase loves looking at James’ pictures and reading the stories that the man’s friends wrote about him in a memory book.
ANOTHER EXCELLENT WORKER
Sam Milligan, the Assistant Delivery Office Manager of Royal Mail and the person who wrote the letter, is not the only worker who went above and beyond while doing their job.
Patrisha Organo, a flight attendant on a Philippine Airlines flight, told the story of a baby who started crying soon after the plane left the airport. Patrisha walked to the mother to see if she could help, and the lady said that she had run out of baby formula, so the baby was probably hungry.
Since they had no formula milk on the plane, Patrisha realized that there was still one thing she could offer to help: her own milk. The flight attendant is the proud mother of a nearly-one-year-old girl, so she was still able to breastfeed when the situation took place.
The flight attendant fed the baby until she fell asleep and then gave her back to her mother, who couldn’t find enough words to express her gratitude.
