I lost my son age 18 yrs old on August 6,2009.I believe his is still with me as at times I feel like someone just kissed my cheek,even though no one is there.Music plays his favorite songs when no one is there to turn it on.I have been suffering tremendously and when I feel so overwhelmed with grief and just can not stand the pain,I hear his voice and feel his presence.I know he is still here but it does not help at all.Strange things have been occurring in our house that my husband along with me have been hearing and experiencing.I have two very significant dreams about him because he said specific things in the 2 dreams and I found them out later to be all credible.He had me stop a friend of his that was right in the middle of committing suicide but when I called him and told him what my son said to tell him,he thanked me.Everything in my dreams,were not just a vision,it had accurate information or directions for me to do.I absoultely beleive they can contact you,it has happened to me too many times to be coincidence
dear karen, i,m so sorry for your loss of your son ben. i know your pain all to well luv. but your doing the right thing, reaching out. one thing i can tell you is my mind in 13 years, has never let me go to where my son was found hanging, not once have i sceen it, or pictured it in my mind, it wont let me go there, and i,ve tried, so god must know it would be tooooo much for me to handle, maybe right now, it would be to much to let you handle, but rest assured, your son is there with you. sometimes in our grief we cant see the signs, or we dont associate them with the one we lost, we're sooo over whelmed, and luv, it sounds like you are. we feel your pain.talk to your son, even though you cant see him, and he,s not going to answer in a way your used to, he will answer. maybe his favoite song comes on the radio, when you really needed to hear it, or maybe it's in a dream you,ll have, it can be anything hun, you have to look, and you have to believe. all of these people telling us their stories cant be wrong, you,ll get your sign sweetie, just keep believing. godbless and i,ll pray that your boy, gives you a sign very soon. hugs....hi linda
I loved reading your story, my son was named Ben also it has been 5 months since he has passed, it has been so hard for me, like everyone else, I would give anything to have a dream or something then I think I could be okay.
I am not sure this was from my daughter but it was clearly a message from what I choose to believe is God. It gave me hope and I pray it will help you. My daughter died in January of 1989 - she was only three months and 9 days old. That year was a huge struggle, my older daughter, age four, was acting out and my husband and I were having extreme difficulties as often follows the loss of a child in some marriages.
November came and I did not have the feeling of gratitude to motivate me to get into the whole dinner planning. The day before, I finally decided to go to the store. I made a simple list - just the basics and stopped by my Mom's on the way. She gave me some coupons for a turkey she had been saving.
I finished the shopping and was standing at the check out, forlornly thinking: "What do I have to be thankful for?" When I was stunned to hear someone respond: 1985! I woke up as if from my fog and said: What? It was the check out girl informing me of the total for my modest Thanksgiving dinner that year after I had used the coupons. Ironically, 1985 was the year my surviving daughter had been born. It was exactly what I had needed to hear at that moment.
A coincidence, yes. But the odds were beyond calculation, that it would be the Thanksgiving dinner purchase- A turkey, potatoes etc., that I used coupons my mom had given me just minutes before, and that I would be thinking what I was at the exact moment the total came to that significant number. I still have the receipt- I keep it in a memory box as a reminder.
Hope it helps. Sometimes the messages are not shouts but whispers.

Karen Monsalve said:Hi Melissa, my name is karen, and i just joined after i saw your story. my heart goes out to you, but most of all, i can relate to you, and i do understand what ur saying about the cell phone thing. I went thru that,after my only son was killed in a motorcycle accident. the love of my life, my pride and joy, gone. gone forever. And so many strange things happen with his cell phone, and so many other strange things. It made me feel better, knowing that other people go thru this stuff also, and im not crazy. . But to talk to people who have never gone thru, they just think ur crazy. I really think ur boyfriend was telling you he was ok, and is doing good,and will keep you safe, he was telling you not to cry. Have you ever read sylvia brown books? she is really good,and i belive her, cause of the grief,and all the strange things i went thru. I belive in what she says. She says this is hell,here on earth. Are love ones are in a great place,and they know how much we miss them. Stay strong melissa, he is looking over you at all times, and wants you to stay strong. God bless.
