Child sends letter to 'dad in heaven' and gets response

Six-year-old Hollie Morgan's father, Nigel Morgan, died last year and Hollie sent a handmade card to her dad who would have been 47 this October.

Royal Mail responded to Hollie, writing to her to let her know that her card had been safely delivered after "avoiding stars and other galetic objects en route to heaven."

Hollie's mum, Laura Allen told the Daily Mirror: "She wanted to wish her dad a happy birthday... she wrote it and put, "To dad in Heaven" on the envelope, and we took it to the post office.

Laura from Widnes in Cheshire said: "I got the post and one of the letters said Hollie's name on it... She was so happy about it. It was wonderful."

Hollie's dad Nigel was a veteran of the Royal Logistic Corps.

A Monthly Gift Of £5 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the UK is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of £5 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
