Pets are a very important part of our lives. Losing a pet is like losing a family member. It is especially hard on young children who share a strong emotional bond with the pets. It is often very difficult to break the sad news to the Kids. Recently, Mary and Robert Westbrook of Norfolk, Virginia were faced with this situation when their three-year-old beagle, Moe, passed away. They told their son Luke that Moe went to the Doggie Heaven. But Luke who was best friends with Moe always kept asking questions about his buddy and when is he coming back.

Then Mary came up with an idea. She and Luke decided to send letters to Moe in Doggie Heaven. It soon became a tradition with Luke and Mary writing little notes to Moe. The messages were addressed to ‘Moe Westbrook, Doggy Heaven, 1st Cloud’.

They would leave the letters in their Mailbox and Mary would remove it every night. But one day she forgot to remove the Letters.
Next Day, to Mary’s surprise, the letter was gone. And in its place, there was a seemingly real response from Moe.

Later it was found that the Mysterious author behind the Kind note was the Postal Worker Zina Owens – a 25 year veteran of the department.
Here was a child who had lost his dog, and any time you love something and it goes away, it hurts. The letter’s innocence made my day, so I wanted to make his. It’s just love. Plain and simple’.
It sure made the day for little Luke and his parents. And reading about random acts of Kindness like these will make the day for thousands of people on the Internet
