After more than a decade of offering his loving companionship to them each day, the couple's dog Tucker passed away last year at age 12. Naturally, Ashley's grandparents were both devastated, wanting to cling on to the pup's precious memory as best they could.
"He had always been a huge part of their life," Ashley told The Dodo. "They have been heartbroken ever since."
Creating that peaceful shrine for Tucker did little to ease the heartache, however, especially for Ashley's grandma. But then she received a letter that did.
