This year he decided to send his dad a birthday card but knew he'd need a little extra help in getting it there.

So on the front of the envelope, Jase wrote: ''Mr Postman, can you take this to Heaven for my dad's birthday. Thanks.''

In response, the Royal Mail's assistant office delivery manager, Sean Milligan, replied with 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."

It concluded: "I will continue to do all I can to ensure delivery to heaven safely."

Jase's mum, Teri Copeland, told the BBC that she "cannot state how emotional he is knowing his dad got his card".

She continued: "He was overwhelmed and kept saying 'my dad really got my letter mum'... I've always told Neive and Jase even if you can't get anyone a present it's always nice to make sure you send a card at Christmas and birthdays.

"I want people to realise that a small gesture of kindness can have such a fantastic impact on someone's life... Royal Mail actually took part and that gives me so much comfort."

No, you're crying!
