The Letter

Our 14 year old dog,
Abbey,died last month (8/23). 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.

She dictated and I wrote:

"Dear God,

Will you please take special care of our dog, Abbey?
She died yesterday and is in heaven. We miss her
very much. We are happy that you let us have her as
our dog even though she got sick. I hope that you
will play with her. She likes to play with balls and
swim before she got sick. I am sending some pictures
of her so that when you see her in heaven you will
know she is our special dog. But I really do miss

Meredith Claire

ps: Mommy wrote the words after Mer told them to

We put that in an envelope with 2 pictures of Abbey,
and addressed it to God/Heaven. We put our return
address on it. Then Mer stuck some stamps on the
front because, as she said, it may take lots of
stamps to get a letter all the way to heaven) and
that afternoon I let her drop it into the letter box
at the post office. For a few days, she would ask if
God had gotten the letter yet. I told her that I
thought He had. Yesterday, for Labor Day, we took
the kids to Austin to a natural history museum. When
we got back, there was a package wrapped in gold
paper on our front porch. Curious, I went to look at
it. It had a gold star card on the front and said
"To: Mer" in an unfamiliar hand. Meredith took it in
and opened it. Inside was a book by Mr. Rogers,
"When a Pet Dies." Taped to the inside front cover
was the letter we had written to God, in its opened
envelope (which was marked Return to Sender:
Insufficient address). On the opposite page, one of
the pictures of Abbey was taped under the words "For
Meredith." We turned to the back cover, and there
was the other picture of Abbey, and this handwritten
note on pink paper:

"Dear Mer,
I know that you will be happy to know that Abbey
arrived safely and soundly in Heaven! Having the
pictures you sent to me was such a big help. I
recognized Abbey right away. You know, Meredith, she
isn't sick anymore. Her spirit is here with me--just
like she stays in your heart--young and running and
playing. Abbey loved being your dog, you know. Since
we don't need our bodies in heaven, I don't have any
pockets!-- so I can't keep your beautiful letter. I
am sending it to you with the pictures so that you
will have this book to keep and remember Abbey. One
of my angels is taking care of this for me. I hope
the little book helps. Thank you for the beautiful
letter. Thank your mother for sending it. 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 am wherever
there is love.

God, and the special angel who wrote this after God told her the words."
