A few days later a gold box with her name and address gets delivered to her house.
We all know how beneficial it is for children to grow up with pets.They learn from a very young age to be responsible, to take care of someone else, while they also have a playmate- and this is even more important for only children.The 14-year-old dog had been with the family for years and it had eventually become a proper family member.
Since Meredith was born, they had always played together and developed a friendship that was special and unique.And that’s exactly why, when Abbey got sick and died, Meredith was left heartbroken. She just couldn’t come to terms with the fact that her best friend had left them forever.
“The day after she passed away my 4-year-old daughter Meredith was crying and talking about how much she missed Abbey,” Meredith’s mom, Colleen, wrote in a Facebook post.
Then, they put the letter in the envelope, along with several stamps – Meredith insisted lots of them should be used since it’s quite a journey to heaven- and put it in the mail.
As for the address? That would be “God/Heaven.”
A few days later, Meredith asked her parents if God had received her letter, and they could only reply that they assumed so.
The little girl’s parents thought that was the end of the story, but they were wrong.
A few days later, Meredith received a gold box with her name and address on it. It looked like it had been sent by God himself.
Inside the box was Mr. Roger’s book “When a Pet Dies,” along with the letter and picture Meredith had sent.
There was also another letter, which Colleen read for her daughter.
Abbey arrived safely in heaven. Having the picture was a big help and I recognized her 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.
You see, a small act of kindness can go a long way – just see the sweet way it all played out in the video below.
