Little Girl's Dog Passes On to Heaven - Sends Letter To God - Receives Reply!

A letter from the Post Office.

We don't know who replied, but there is a beautiful soul working in the dead letter office who understands LOVE..........................
Our 14-year-old dog Abbey died last month.

The day after she passed away 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 that we could, so she dictated these words:

Dear God,
Will you please take care of my dog?
Abbey died yesterday and is with you in heaven.
I miss her very much.

I 'm 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 swim and play with balls.

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 & Meredith,
addressed it to God/Heaven.

We put our return address on it.

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 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'm 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

Thank you...

I really appreciate the compliment.

And to be honest, until your statement I didn't even realize, but many may have thought I was making an argument against the mother telling her child that the dog had gone to heaven, which wasn't my intent at all.

The mother believes in heaven (my assumption) so it only makes sense for her to pass this belief on to her child as comfort.

"And to be honest, until your statement I didn't even realize, but many may have thought I was making an argument against the mother telling her child that the dog had gone to heaven, which wasn't my intent at all."

I knew this wasn't your intent, which is why I wanted to offer the opportunity for an obvious clarification. I also knew you would agree that offering what you believe to be true to a child needs to be tempered with parental love, which you obviously have in abundance.

Are you serious?

He states that the "dead dog" is a suspect in the forgery.

Is Jonathan Swift arguing against utilitarianism here, or is he arguing that we should eat Irish babies?

Thank you...

For apologizing! It's about time someone took responsibility for twisting a child's innocence into something as grotesque as a belief in the insanely impossible.

It's about time, people, parents included started treating their children like people who deserve to be told the truth and raised with a solid understanding of reality versus fiction.

It's about time that parents stopped destroying their children's ability to trust them, and well, anything really.

My parents never lied to me, I never lied to my children about Santa Claus or anything.

What gives you the right to lie and manipulate a child's belief system for your own amusement?

Having said all of that. You clearly were being a smart ass, and so are still a part of the problem.

This brought tears to my eyes.

Thank you for sharing it. Nice to see a 'good news' piece now and then.
