My Dad's Visit


I was 18 years old when my dad passed away, this was in 2005, I was the one who got to see him first after he passed away. Being the eldest and his favourite I knew I would have a special connection with him always.

After three days of his passing away, I was sleeping at night with my sisters and mom, when I suddenly woke up and saw him sitting near our bed. He told me briefly and very clearly the names of his five friends whom he wanted me to invite for lunch and out of those 5, I heard the names of only 3 before, so the next day when I called one of those friend he confirmed that there were indeed 2 other person with those names, who worked with him in his company. And to fulfill his wish, we invited them for lunch.

On another day, when all my uncles and us gathered to have dinner, my dad's favourite food was being cooked and as we sat to have our food, we heard loud banging on our front door as if someone wanted to come in, but when we went to check, the door was unlocked and there was no one outside. We all felt he wanted to come in and join us for dinner and wanted to be part of us.

There were times, when I wake up at night at around 2 am and see a white shadow of my dad's shape lingering near my mom's bed and I know its him. I know he misses her and us a lot and is taking care of us at every step we take.

I still see him sometimes though he doesn't talk anymore, it's either at night sitting beside us or in his favourite chair. It feels safe to think he is still around.

Sorry about your father's demise.

But I think you are lucky to have a man in your life who is so concerned for all of you even after his own death!

God bless you all and may his soul rest in peace!

BettyB, that was a good narration. I think your father loves you, your mom and your siblings so much that he wanted to be with you, protecting you. You are gifted.

Thanks for sharing your experience.

Regards and respects to you.

Thank you for your story. My dad visited me too after he died. It is such a solace, knowing they are OK.

Kind regards,
