Dad's Story

When I was about 12 years old my family moved from Colorado to Illinois. We left many close friends, but we still stayed in touch with them. One family that my family is very close to had a misfortune years ago. My dad's bestfriend passed away from lukemia, leaving his wife and 5 young children.

My dad has been known to be able to communicate with spirits that he was close to on earth. One day, my dad's deceased bestfriend's spirit came to him. My dad said he looked just as he did when he was alive. He talked with my dad like it was no big deal. Then he told him that he needed to contact his wife back in Colorado and tell her that their oldest daughter needed help. She had gotten herself pregnant at the age of 17 and that his wife had no idea.

So my dad was very distraught by this conversation. He didn't know how he would be able to do it. Finally he called her and asked her if her oldest daughter was ok. She told my dad that everything was as ok. Then my dad told her that she needed to ask her daughter if everything is ok. He told her that her husband had come to him and told him to call her. She had a hard time believing that and she was very angry that she hadn't seem her husband herself.

Finally she did ask her daughter and to her dismay, she found out that she was pregnant. It still shocks me to this day that my dad has such an amazing gift.
