ABBEY  AND  MEREDITH
Our 14 year old Black Labrador, Abbey, died last month. 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.  I told her that I thought we could, so Meredith dictated to me these words: 

Dear God, 
Will you please take care of my dog?  She died yesterday and is with you in heaven. I miss her very much.  
I am happy that you let me have her as my dog even though she got sick. I hope you will play with her. She
loves tennis balls and likes to swim. I am sending this picture of her and me 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 the picture of Abbey and Meredith and addressed it to God/Heaven. We put our return address on it.  Then Meredith pasted many 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 a 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,  our US Mail was delivered. In our mail 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,
I want you to know Abbey arrived safely in heaven. Having your picture was a big help. I recognized 
Abbey right away.  Abbey isn't sick anymore. Her spirit is here with me just like it stays in your heart.   
Abbey also loved  being your dog. Since we don't need our bodies in heaven we don't have any pockets 
to keep your  picture in. So I am sending your letter and Abby's picture back to you in this little book. This 
way you will keep it and have something to remember our Abbey by.  Thank you for your 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
