A young girl’s loving letter to her dead ‘dear Daddy’ has been found dropped in a pub car park by a landlady who is now appealing for help to track her down.
The heart-rending note was written by a child called Summer but there are no other clues to who she is, or who her father was.
It was discovered outside the Prince of Wales Pub on Ham Hill, Somerset and handed to landlady Nicki Holroyd who has started a social media campaign to find the youngster.
The tender, handwritten letter reads: “Dear Daddy. I love you. I miss you so much and I wish you were here right now!
“At night I sometimes look at the sky and make a wish and I make a wish on the brightest star I see and I believe it is you.
“I always think of you on your birthday, fathers day, my birthday and Christmas and always after.
“Happy some days sad the other but right now I can feel you in my heart and you are always in my mind but I just wish I could have said one last goodbye and one last hug before you took your journey to your new home in heaven.
“I know all my brothers and sisters and everyone in our familys (sic) miss you every day too and wish you were still here but until we meet again or talk again I will leave you to rest.
“I love you so much xx RIP daddy xx and I hope you are happy where you are xxx
“Lots of love, your little girl Summer, I love you xxxxxxx.”
Nicki, 51, said: “One of our customers handed this in.
“It’s the most heart wrenching letter from a young girl who has written the most lovely letter to her dad who has died and is in Heaven.
“Please help to try and trace her, we can never throw it away.
“As far as I can gather the letter was found in the car park so I think it was dropped rather than left.”
She added: “It doesn’t feel right that we have it. It is a beautifully written letter so we need to have a go at reuniting it with its author.
“The writer is called Summer and judging from the letter’s content, she has brothers and sisters.”
The pub is asking people to join their campaign on their Facebook page in an attempt to share the image until it the owners are found.
