several "visits" from my dad after his death from
pancreatic cancernearly six years ago. He was 83. The dreams
started coming about two weeks after he passed away. In each
dream, he always looked healthy and robust and there was a
glow around his body.
first dream, my mother and I were standing before his grave
on a sunny day. I looked up at the sky and said, "Dad,
we miss you." Suddenly a beautiful white light broke
through the clouds and a white dove flew across the sky before
dropping straight down and disappearing, after which a cross
appeared in its place.
dream, I was at my mother's house when a car pulled into the
driveway and Dad got out wearing a straw hat. I ran out to
see him and we talked for a few minutes before he returned
to the car. It wasa convertible and he waved at me while driving
into the sunset.
another dream, I went over to Mom's house. Dad was sitting
there in his chair laughing and talking to a roomful of people
who were shaking his hand and patting him on the back. Everyone
was so happy.
next to the last dream which occurred a couple of years ago
in the fall (I always get depressed in the fall because that's
when we got the bad news; he passed on the first of January)
he appeared before mewith a golden glow around him.He was
dressed in a cream colored panama shirt (I gave it to him
as a gift from my Caribbean vacation several years ago).He
was smiling and said to me, "Don't worry about me. I'm
very happy and healthy, I feel good and will never have to
be sick again."
when I got depressed again, he appeared to me in a dream sitting
across from me at a kitchen table. I couldn't see his face
but I knew that it was him although everything was sort of
veiled. He told me, "You've got to let this go and get
on with your life.
last three years, I have occasional had a recurring dream,
during times of stress, of driving a car very fast down the
edge of a mountain road trying to hold onto the wheel. My
Dad is in the car with me, and just when it seems that the
car is going to go off the edge, something saves me. I think
it is my Dad looking out for me even now.
