A patron walking through the parking lot of a pub in Somerset, U.K., happened upon a crumpled letter lying on the ground. When he picked it up, he realized he had found something incredibly special, and totally heartbreaking.
The letter was written by a 10-year-old girl named Summer Lloyd, and was addressed to her father, who passed away five years earlier. The letter is a direct and honest look at Summer”s thoughts on her dad”s death.
One line reads, “Sometimes I look at the sky and make a wish. And I make the wish on the brightest star I see, and I believe it is you.”

Summer talks about how much she loves and misses her dad, and how she”s coping with the loss. She was planning on tying it to a balloon and releasing it into the sky, but had dropped it at some point. Luckily, the pub patron found it and returned it to the owner of the property. The owner, in turn, posted it on Facebook in the hopes of finding the writer. And it worked.
The letter was returned to Summer, whose family expressed gratitude at having it back. Summer did release a balloon, as she does every year for her dad. However, she decided to keep this year”s letter and frame it so she can remember the incredible story.
