If you have a small child in your life, "Letters from Heaven" is a wonderful new tradition you can start for your family that will last for many generations.

Susie shared the idea on her Facebook page, including two videos of her 18-year-old daughter, Abby, opening the time capsule for the first time.

"This week Abby turned 18. For her 1st birthday we asked all our loved ones to write her a letter to be put in a time capsule that would be opened 17 years later. It is the most precious gift we could have ever given to her. Among the 25 letters are 7 letters from people who have passed on. These include letters from her Grandfather Doug, her uncle John Aldershof, great grandparents and more."

"We cried and laughed all night. Such a blessing to have birthday wishes from everyone. The time capsule was full of great things for her. If you have a small child in your life, please share this idea. It was incredible."
