  • Sorry, posted the story before but in case you missed it. We has to put our dog of 9 years down last Tues. Anna is 4 and did not go with us to pt him down and was really missing him. Crying at night I sugested we write him a letter... we did the next morning and she wanted to give it to our postal girl ( I expected her to take it and throw it away...noot what happened though.) She took it to the supervisor who then told the girl to tell us to expect a package for her in the next few days...Two days later Dave the super arrived at our door with a package marked "FROM JACK IN HEAVEN TO ANNA" inside the box was a book about a dog in heaven, a stuffed dog that resembled our dog and the most beautiful letter from Jack stating that he had arrived in heaven and how much fun it was to be there even though he had missed her very much... keep in mind that we do not know the postal staff personally and he helped our daughter so much!

  • That was a great idea on your part. Yeck they should put it on the news~~We need to hear more often of people doing "good" things.
