Une très belle histoire – A very nice story. (Ruth Fishel blog)

This story was around a few years ago but my eyes still filled when I read it.  
It’s lovely and reminds us of the goodness of others.It is not known who replied,
but there is a beautiful soul working in the dead letter office of the U. S. Postal
Service.
Our 14 year old dog, 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 she dictated 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 likes to play with balls and to swim.
I am sending a picture of her 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 a picture of Abbey and Meredith and addressed
it to God/Heaven..
We put our return address on it.. Then Meredith pasted several 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 the 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, there 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,
Abbey arrived safely in heaven.
Having the 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 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..
Thank you for the 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,
