We all know how beneficial it is for children to grow up with pets, and a gold box with her name and address is delivered to her house a few days later. Children learn to be responsible from an early age, to take care of others, and to have a playmate – something that is even more important for children by themselves.
Meredith and her 14-year-old dog had been living together for years, and it eventually became a part of the family. Since Meredith was born, they had always played together and established a special and unique friendship. It was because of this that Meredith was devastated when Abbey died. 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.
As a result, Meredith insisted that a lot of stamps be used since it is quite a journey to heaven- and the letter was mailed out. Several days later, Meredith asked her parents if God had received her letter, and they replied that they assumed it had.
Several days later, Meredith received a gold box with her name and address on it. Her parents thought that was the end of the story, but they were wrong. A letter and picture Meredith sent, along with Mr. Roger’s “When a Pet Dies” were inside the box, which appeared to have been sent by God himself. Colleen also read another letter to 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.
I think it is important to understand that even a small act of kindness can go a long way. Take a look at the video below to see how it all played out – please SHARE this with your family and friends in the comments section.
