NORTH TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WKBW) — It's happened again on Pioneer Drive in North Tonawanda. A letter with a magic marker drawn stamp made its way into Natalie Leaver's mailbox. The sender? Her grandson, Chase, from Lockport.

Chase is known to send handwritten letters to his "Nonnie" with a magic marker "stamp" in the top right corner. The last time the letter sent through could only be explained by the Leaver family and the Post Office as a "Christmas miracle."

This letter, just in time for Easter, did have a return address unlike the Christmas mail and also showed the time stamp going through the postal system. Nonnie calling this letter her "Easter miracle," surprised another letter from Chase with a homemade stamp came through.

As for how this got through the mail system, again, the Post Office says it still isn't sure how this letter got to Nonnie's either. Adding that letters without the correct postage are returned to the sender, which could have been a possibility since there was a return address this time around. A spokeswoman for the U.S. Postal Service saying over the phone, "Wow, obviously these letters must have some special meaning. For some reason, this young man has a special path to his grandmother's house."
