Letter to Heaven returned- Postage due

Imagine wanting closure from the death of a loved one and getting a bill for it. That is what happened when a French teenager who wrote a letter to her late mother in heaven had it returned with a demand for postal costs.

The 13-year-old girl, named, addressed the letter to Paradise Street, Heaven.

Two days later it was returned to her home in Chatillonais, France with an “unknown at this address” notice and a demand for 1.35 euros as she hadn’t put a stamp on the envelope.

Two years after her mother’s death, Anais was still inconsolable. She decided to send her a letter to let her mum know how much she loved her.

Asked to explain the mishap, the French post office said there really was a town in the area called Heaven — “Ciel” in French — but that the street named Paradise Street was unknown.
