Birthday parties are a ton of fun. Between the friends, presents, and activities, they’re exciting for whomever is celebrating. Although, arguably, the best part is the birthday cake.

Recently, 4-year-old Bella Graham whipped up a cake for her mother’s birthday, but what she did with it will have you in tears.

Bella Graham’s mother, Jessica, passed away in 2016. Despite that, Bella wanted to give her cake for her birthday.

Back in 2016, Bella’s mother, Jessica, died from a sudden illness. While she was only 2 years old at the time, this incident had a profound effect on Bella.

Now, in May 2018, Jessica would have been 30 years old and, while she was unable to celebrate her birthday here on Earth, Bella hoped that she’d be able to celebrate from beyond the grave.

“She started expressing concern that mommy wouldn’t have a birthday cake in heaven,” Bella’s grandma, Laura Fisher, told WPTV.

So Fisher reached out to an Edgewater, Florida, post office to see if it would be possible for them to mail a cake to Heaven.

“[The post office] mails hundreds of thousands of letters to Santa Claus every year, so Heaven wasn’t that much further, right?” she said.

The post office agreed to mail Bella’s cake to Heaven.

Fisher received word from the post office that they agreed to ship a cake to Heaven. So Bella and Fisher got started baking.

When they were done, they put it in a box and brought it to the post office where workers opened up a special line just for them.

“They said this line was for people shipping to Heaven only. They put a stamp on it, they guaranteed her that the cake would arrive before mommy’s birthday,” said Fisher.

Bella was overjoyed that the post office was able to fulfill her request.

“She was so happy. She gave me a high five,” Fisher said. “She was like, ‘Mommy’s going to have a birthday cake. She’s going to have a party!”

Bella wasn’t the only one happy. Fisher was deeply impressed with the post office’s cooperation.

“They have no idea how much it meant to her to be able to do that for her mom,” she said.

While the cake may have been full of sugar, Bella’s love for her mom is far sweeter.
