Gino Valentine was visiting his father’s grave on Father’s Day when he discovered a heartfelt “letter from Heaven”.
The eight-year-old found the letter beneath a heart shaped stone, while leaving a Father’s Day card for his dad, Daryl.
His mum Gayle, asked him what it said, to which he replied: “A letter from Heaven.”
Gino tragically lost his father when he was three-years-old, and his mother decided to ease the little boy’s grief by writing him a letter on what she believed his father would’ve said to him on Father’s Day.
Gayle shared the footage of Gino reading the letter on Facebook to help grieving families.
Gino was so touched by the letter that he started to cry and said he was “…going to take this home with us.”
Gayles letter said:
“Hi Gino, thank you for coming to see me on Father’s Day.
I know you don’t remember me very well as I came here when you were only three-and-a-half but I do see you. It’s OK to be angry, but please don’t use bad words.
I wanted to come and see you but I can’t ’cause it’s not allowed when we go to Heaven so I sneaked a letter inside for you to read.
I miss you and I don’t get older like mummy does!”
