A few days later, a gold box with her name and address is delivered to her house.
We all know how useful 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 only for children.
The 14-year-old dog was with the family for many years and eventually became a real family member.
And that’s why when Abby got sick and died, Meredith was left heartbroken. She just couldn’t accept the fact that her best friend had left them forever.
“The day after her death, my 4-year-old daughter Meredith cried and talked about how much she missed Abby,” Meredith’s mom, Colleen, wrote in a Facebook post.
With love, Meredith”
Then they put the letter in an envelope, along with several stamps–Meredith insisted that there be a lot of them, since this is a real trip to heaven-and mailed it.
As for the address? It 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 it.
The parents of the little girl thought that this 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 was sent by God himself.
Inside the box was Mr. Roger’s book “When a Pet Dies,” as well as a letter and a photograph that Meredith had sent.
There was also another letter that Colleen read for her daughter.
Abby arrived safely in heaven. Having a photo was a great help, and I recognized it right away.
Abby’s not sick anymore. Her spirit is here with me, just as it remains in your heart. Abby loved being your dog. Since we don’t need our bodies in heaven, I don’t have pockets to store your photo, so I’m sending it back to you in this little book so that you can keep it and have something to remember.
You see, a small act of kindness can make a big difference – just watch how cute it all played out in the video below.
