A little boy who asked a postman to deliver a letter to his dad in Heaven received a heartwarming reply from Royal Mail.
Seven-year-old Jase sadly lost his dad four years ago and ever since then he and his sister have made efforts to keep their dad's memory alive.
This year, Jase wanted to send his dad a birthday card but realised he would need some help getting it up to his dad.
On the envelope, little Jase wrote: ''Mr Postman, can you take this to Heaven for my dad's birthday. Thanks.''
In response, Royal Mail sent out a letter which read: "Dear Jase, while we've been delivering your post, we became aware of some concerns.
"So, I just wanted to take this opportunity to contact you about how we succeeded in the delivery of your letter, to your dad in Heaven. This was a difficult challenge avoiding stars and other galactic objects en route to Heaven.
The letter continued: "However, please be assured that his particular important item of mail has been delivered. Royal Mail's priority is to get our 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."
It was signed Sean Milligan assistant delivery office manager.
Sharing the heart-warming post on Facebook, his mum Teri Copland from West Lothian, wrote: "A few weeks ago my seven-year-old son posted this card to his dad in heaven and today he got a lovely reply from the postman.
"I actually cannot state how emotional he is knowing his dad got his card...you didn't have to make the effort to do this you could have just ignored it but the fact that you have made the effort for a little boy you've never met is such a lovely thing to do.
"Royal Mail you've just restored my faith in humanity and thank you it honestly means the world to him please share this so all the staff at Royal Mail know just how grateful we are. Thanks, and merry Christmas."
The post quickly went viral racking up thousands of likes and shares as well as comments from people heaping praise on the postman.
