Dealing with the loss of a loved one is terribly difficult. As adults, we may already have developed coping mechanisms that can help us endure the painful loss. But for kids, it may be an entirely different story.

Four-year-old Wyatt Revels tragically lost his father in January 29, 2015. His mother, Alysha Starling, said that he has been struggling to come to terms with the idea that his father is never coming back. One of her friends came up with the idea of sending little Wyatt a handmade card or a little something to brighten up his day, put a smile on his face, and distract him from the loss. So far, it has been working.

“Now instead of waking up every morning and asking if we were going to go and dig Daddy up today (as a mother it’s so hard to choke back tears and answer that question) the mailman has proven to be a pleasant distraction, so much that local friends and family got him a PO Box so that they could safely share with more friends and family to send a card.” says Alysha.
