Soldier Receives A Letter From His Daughter By Coincidence

Letter in envelope

A letter was addressed simply "to any soldier" and sent to Saudi Arabia. So when Sgt. Rory Lomas opened it, he was stunned to find it signed by his 10 year old daughter, Cetericka.

Lomas' wife Barbara told the Beaver County Times: "It's amazing if you think of the odds of him getting his own daughter's letter out of the thousands that were sent"

"My family couldn't believe it. They say it was a blessing and was truly meant to be. It's something that will be very special to us for a very long time."

The letter from Cetericka was one of thousands written by Chatham County children and addressed "to any soldier."

The letters were packed with chocolate brownies  made by more than 1,000 volunteers and shipped to 14,000 soldiers.

Lomas, a member of the 84th Transportation Company, arrived in Saudi Arabia a few weeks previous to receiving the letter.

The letter said:

Dear Soldier

Hey, my name is Cetericka Lomas. I am 10 years old, and I know you're hot over there. Well, hopefully you can get home soon.

Now we are studying Indians in social studies and studying plants in science.

Do you work hard? How high is the temperature over there? Well, we'll talk to you later.

Your friend,

Cetericka Nicole Lomas.
