A 14 year-old dog named Abbey was the best friend of a 4 year-old named Meredith Scrivener. Whenever Abbey passed away from old age, the little girl was devastated. Meredith was so distraught, she told her parents that she wanted to write a letter to God. Together, she and her mother wrote a letter… and then, they received an incredible response.
Two weeks later, the family returned home to find a package wrapped in gold on their front porch addressed to “Mer” and signed “God, and one of his special angels.”
Meredith (now 10 years-old) wrote the letter to God when she was but 4. She wanted her little dog to be taken care of in heaven.
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.
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.
The kindness this little girl was shown came simple from the goodness of one person’s heart. They didn’t ask for anything in return, and it melts our hearts.
