Bronagh and Thomas Burke on their wedding day

Like all the best ideas it is brilliantly simple. Bronagh Burke from Londonderry wants the public to send her three-year-old twins, Aoife and Adam, a card on their fourth birthday on June 28. It is a way, she hopes, of bringing a smile to the twins' face after they witnessed the horror of seeing their father die from a massive heart attack five weeks ago.

The children may be young but they know they have lost someone central to their lives and their childish hope is that dad may come down from heaven to see them. For Bronagh life has become a horror story - her father died from a heart attack five years ago - but the public can bring a bit of joy. Please post a card.
