3-year-old boy receives letter from doggy heaven

beagle[1]You’ve heard about Post Office workers responding to children’s letters that are addressed to Santa at the North Pole. This particular response is even more touching.[2]

Hampton Roads has the story,

Moe, the family beagle, dies at age 13, leaving some heartache in the home of Mary and Roberto Westbrook. They live in Norfolk’s Colonial Place with their 3-1/2-year-old son, Luke — who keeps asking if his dog is coming back.

One day, Luke asks to write a letter to Moe. Doing so becomes a bit of a mom-and-son ritual — crayon-filled sessions that seem like good medicine.

The usual message: “I miss you. Hope you’re having fun in doggie heaven.”

The letters — addressed to Moe Westbrook on Cloud One — are carried out to the mailbox, then retrieved by Mary after her son falls asleep.

A few weeks ago, she forgot to fish one out. The next morning, it disappeared with her mailman.

“I figured someone would just throw it away once it got to the post office,” Mary said. “It didn’t even have a stamp.”

But this week, an answer appeared in the Westbrook mailbox. Printed on paper marked with a tiny “USPS” at the bottom, it was addressed to Luke from Moe:

“I’m in Doggie Heaven. I play all day. I am happy. Thank you 4 being my friend. I wuv you Luke.”

The publication went further and tracked down the kind postal worker, Zina Owens, a window clerk for the Post Office. As annoying as the Internet can be sometimes, with garbage everywhere, it also contains beautiful treasures like this, which we’d never know about otherwise. Kudos to this kind woman.
