(PIX11)– An 8-year-old boy received a special “letter from heaven” this Father’s Day.

Gayle Valentine took her son Gino to visit his father’s grave on Father’s Day to deliver a card.

It was there that Gino found a letter beneath a heart-shaped stone, a message from his dad.

“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,” Gino read from the letter.

The emotional moment was caught on video and shared over 16,000 times on Facebook.

    I think that this is wonderful. My son Adam is 6 years old and his daddy just passed away yesterday. I appreciate the sharing of this moment for Gino. It may be something I can do to help Adam heal as well.

    This is just so sweet, I lost my father when I was 7 and had someone done this for me it may have gave me extra closure. Your a great mom for doing this, I can tell how much it ment to your little boy. Perhaps this is something you can keep doing as the years pass.
