    DefaultI had to share this Dog story....

    This was on another forum, but I had to share it.....


    U. S.POSTAL SERVICE STORY

    Our dog, Abbey, died August 23, and the day after Abbey died, my 4 year old,
    Meredith, was SO upset. She wanted to write a letter to God so that He would
    recognize Abbey in heaven. She told me what to write, and I did.

    Then she put 2 pictures of Abbey in the envelope. We addressed it to God in
    Heaven, put two stamps on it because, as she said, it could be a long way to
    heaven. We put our return address on it, and I let her put it in the drop
    box at the post office that afternoon. She was absolutely sure that letter
    would get to heaven, and I wasn't about to disillusion her.

    So today we took the kids to the museum in Austin, and when we came home,
    there was a package wrapped in gold on our front porch. It was addressed to
    Meredith. So... she took it inside and opened it. Inside was a book, When
    Your Pet Dies by Mr. Rogers (Fred Rogers).

    Inside the front cover was the letter we had written to God, in its opened
    envelope. On the opposite page was one of the pictures of Abbey taped on
    the page. On the back page was the other picture of Abbey, and this
    handwritten note on pink paper:

    "Dear Meredith, I know that you will be happy to find out that Abbey arrived
    safely and soundly in heaven. Having the pictures you sent to Me was a big
    help! I recognized Abbey right away! You know, Meredith, she isn't sick
    anymore. Her spirit is here with Me, just like it stays in your heart...
    young and running and playing. Abbey loved being your dog, you know.

    Since we don't need our bodies in he aven, I don't have any pockets to keep
    things in. So... I am sending you your beautiful letter back with the
    pictures so that you will have this little memory book to keep. One of My
    angels is taking care of this for Me. I hope this little book will help.

    Thank you for your beautiful letter. Thank your mother for sending it.
    What a wonderful mother you have. I picked her especially for you.

    Signed,
    God

    This is a true story, I love that we have angels among us, some of them
    even work at the Post Office!
