What a sad yet adorable story!!
Very recently, Roberto & Mary Westbrook‘s beloved beagle, Moe, passed away at the old age of 13, and no one was more devastated than their son, Luke, who’s too young to truly comprehend death and where his adored friend went.
Saddened by their three-year-old son constantly inquiring when Moe would come back, they encouraged Luke to write a letter to doggie heaven.
Even though the Westbrooks never intended to send the letter addressed to Moe Westbrook on Cloud One, it somehow ended up in the bag of a very sympathetic mailman who replied to Luke’s sweet writing which read:
“I miss you. Hope you’re having fun in doggie heaven.”
Despite thinking that the letter would be eventually tossed out, Luke received an ADORABLE response just days later:
“I’m in Doggie Heaven. I play all day. I am happy. Thank you 4 being my friend. I wuv you Luke.”
Umm, we might be crying right now.
While the mailman has yet to be identified, we bet Luke will never forget his kind gesture!
