Local Mail Carriers Deliver Community Birthday Wishes


Ryan Weaver, the birthday boy!

On Friday, May 29, rural mail carriers Lana Owens and Linda Lowery delivered a special birthday surprise to Ryan Weaver from members of the Mansfield community.

Weaver, 28, is the son of Bill and Sidney Weaver of Mansfield. The family is well-loved and respected in the community.

Both Owens and Lowery were aware of Weaver’s love for mail. Owens stated, “he stands at the mailbox waiting for the mail to be delivered.” So, as his birthday approached, the duo decided to involve the community, and ask for cards for Weaver’s birthday.

Over 75 cards were delivered to Weaver, and he received parcels of birthday wishes everyday for two weeks. On his birthday, the mail carriers bundled up the cards and attached balloons to make the delivery even more special.

“He was thankful, and so was his family for all the cards,” Owens added. “He was very grateful for the kindness that was shown.”

Happy Birthday Ryan, we hope your birthday was as special as you are!
