A friend emailed this to me....

Our 14 year old dog, Abbey, died last month. The day after she died, my 4 year old daughter Meredith was crying and talking about how much she missed Abbey.. She asked if we could write a letter to God so that when Abbey got to heaven, God would recognize her. I told her that I thought we could so she dictated these words:

Dear God,
Will you please take care of my dog? She died yesterday and is with you in heaven. I miss her very much. I am happy that you let me have her as my dog even though she got sick.
I hope you will play with her.. She likes to play with balls and to swim. I am sending a picture of her so when you see her You will know that she is my dog. I really miss her.
Love, Meredith

We put the letter in an envelope with a picture of Abbey and Meredith and addressed it to God/Heaven. We put our return address on it.. Then Meredith pasted several stamps on the front of the envelope because she said it would take lots of stamps to get the letter all the way to heaven. That afternoon she dropped it into the letter box at the post office. A few days later, she asked if God had gotten the letter yet. I told her that I thought He had.

Yesterday, there was a package wrapped in gold paper on our front porch addressed, 'To Meredith' in an unfamiliar hand.. Meredith opened it. Inside was a book by Mr. Rogers called, 'When a Pet Dies..' Taped to the inside front cover was the letter we had written to God in its opened envelope. On the opposite page was the picture of Abbey &Meredith and this note:


Dear Meredith,
Abbey arrived safely in heaven.
Having the picture was a big help. I recognized Abbey right away.
Abbey isn't sick anymore. Her spirit is here with me just like it stays in your heart. Abbey loved being your dog. Since we don't need our bodies in heaven, I don't have any pockets to keep your picture in, so I am sending it back to you in this little book for you to keep and have something to remember Abbey by..
Thank you for the beautiful letter and thank your mother for helping you write it and sending it to me. What a wonderful mother you have. I picked her especially for you.
I send my blessings every day and remember that I love you very much.
By the way, I'm easy to find, I am wherever there is love.

Love,
God

Oh that is so sweet. What a lovely thing to do. There is obviously a guardian angel working for the post office somewhere.

Irish eyes are crying

:cry:Oh my gosh my little boy who is ten and I have just cried like babies and are now hugging my little dog to bits. What a really lovely thing to happen. A long time ago my little girl found 20 pound on the floor in asda and handed it in . She was about 8 at the time and I honestly never thought any more about it but ten days later a little package turned up with a small framed picture of two little flower fairies and a note from a very elderly lady saying how lovely it was to know that there were still such honest children and that the money was a big part of her pension and how grateful she was. That little picture still hangs in my little girls bedroom and still brings a smile. Thank you for sharing and so sad about your doggie loss :(:angel:

Thanks for posting - made me cry too! We lost our beloved dog at Christmas and I miss her every day too - so lovely to know there are devoted people like that to make loss of a loved one a little easier to bear.
