The mail carrier shared with us that he had lost his father.

After the heartfelt query was answered by the mail carrier, Sarah Tully, the mother of the child, the carrier got in touch with Sarah Tully who began receiving an influx on Facebook tags.
“My phone was pinging. It was there, I discovered when I opened Facebook. It was shocking. I told my daughter, “Oh my God, that’s Sianna” Tully said on FOX News.
Tully stated that Sianna had been writing letters to her father (who died at four months old) and sharing photos of holidays such as Father’s Day and birthdays since she was able to write.
“She is just beginning to grasp it all. She was only a baby. Tully stated that there are many pictures for her to see him.”
Sianna asked her mother about her father so she could continue writing sweet holiday messages. Tully replied that Heaven was on Cloud Nine, LeicestershireLive reported.
People quickly shared their support via Facebook comments, applauding the kindness and sharing it with others.
One commenter wrote, “Beautiful reading – I lost dad unexpectedly last month.”
Another commenter said, “What a touching post to remind us to remember dads who aren’t there… and to love him and appreciate him while they are here.”
Tully, who got the letter back, stated that she would continue the sweet exchange with Sianna when Sianna turns older.
