ST. LOUIS, MO. (KTVI) – A letter sent by a little girl to her grandmother didn't have any postage or even a name on the envelope.  Yet it still got delivered to Utah thanks to the Postal Service.

Valerie Welsch, with the U.S. Postal Service, says, “I think that somebody probably figured out it was a child writing and went ahead and let it go through from the goodness of their heart.”

From St. Louis to Salt Lake City, with no name and no postage.

Katrina Jensen, who wrote the letter, is happy the letter made it saying, “ I was surprised and I feel like something.  So I feel like a rock star.”

Katrina has hearing trouble, and her parents move her to St. Louis so she could attend the Central Institute For The Deaf. But that took her away from Grandma.

Welsch says the post office always gets the job done, “Rain, sleet, snow and for Grandma's sometime.  For Grandmas sometimes, right.”

And Katrina says she'll continue writing letters, only next time she'll remember something important: the stamp.
