After my dad passed away, my mother just couldn't
handle his death. They had been married for over 50 years and were inseparable
spirits here on earth. So she believed that she had no reason to continue
living once he was gone. In the coming months, she remained quite depressed.
She insisted that Dad had come to her several times and had spoken to her.
I truly believed her, since I had had similar experiences since his passing.
Finally, after a
brief illness, Mom passed away. She died just a few short months
after Dad left us. One night, I was awakened by a finger firmly
thumping me on the chest. It was my mother. She was smiling,
and a wonderful feeling of peace and love filled my bedroom.
My dad was standing in the corner by the foot of the bed. He
was smiling, too. He never said a word, but my mother definitely
communicated to me that they were together and very happy. They
both looked so young and healthy! It was such a wonderful experience
that I did not want to end.
Although my dad and
I had enjoyed a close relationship, my mother and I had not been
close. But on the day before her death, we had spent several
hours talking about many issues we should have dealt with years
before. So it was particularly helpful to me to feel so much
love in that room and to see Mom and Dad together and so very
I just wanted to
share this story with everyone. The spirits of our loved ones
truly do come back to us, and it helps us with the grieving and
healing process to know that they are in a much happier place
