Girl, 6, gets ‘letter from heaven’ after sending dead dad a birthday card

[Reading level: B1 – Intermediate]

A daughter sent her dead dad a birthday card – and received a surprise reply. Hollie Morgan, six, posted the handmade card to heaven for war veteran dad Nigel who died from pneumonia in June 2018.

 

A Royal Mail employee told the schoolgirl to put her address on the back of the card to let her know if the letter was delivered to mark her dad’s 47th birthday.

 

In a heart-warming twist, Hollie, from Widnes, Cheshire, received a reply saying the letter had been delivered after “avoiding stars and other galactic objects en route to heaven”.

 

Hollie’s mum Laura Allen, 32, said her she was ecstatic to get a reply from her dad after she also sent up a special balloon to him for Christmas in 2018.

 

Laura said: “We’d heard about people doing similar sorts of things and thought we’d give it a go. She wanted to wish her dad a happy birthday as he would have been 47 in October.”

 

“Hollie sent up a special balloon in the colours of Liverpool FC, her dad’s favourite team, for Christmas but asked me if we’d be able to send a birthday card to him and I said I’m sure someone would be able to deliver it. She wrote it out and put ‘to dad in heaven’ on the envelope before we took it to the post office.”

 

“The postmaster said it needed a special stamp on because it was going to heaven and told Hollie that she needed to write her address on the back. He said they would write to her to let it know it had arrived safely.”

 

A few days later Hollie received a letter from Royal Mail confirming that the letter had been successfully delivered to heaven.
