A Memoir of my True Love


Since age three, I have been hearing voices in my mind; have dreams of personal, future events and had a Near Death Experience. Through these experiences, I have had my life saved numerous times, and had been guided through hints, to meet and marry my true love; soul mate, Rob. As wonderful as all this may seem so far, Rob and I did not meet each other until we both had two marriages behind us, and were in our forties!

Here's how we met: In 1994, I placed an ad in the Personals section of a newspaper, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Although many men (including Rob) responded, Rob was the only man I wanted to be with. During one of Rob's and my first few dates together, I realized that all the paranormal-type messages I had received during my life brought me to that very moment in time; that Rob was the man I had been in search of, for all those years. The knowing was so overwhelming for me, that I could never explain any of it to Rob.

After two months of our dating, I moved in with him at his house. A year later, we married. While we were still newlyweds, Rob passed. However, I've really never been apart from Rob. Since Rob's passing, he's come to me in several different paranormal forms: As being a mist by my side; talking to me in his same, familiar voice; as being a big, bright star in the sky; appearing to me with wearing new clothes, and in so many other ways. He somehow manages to have our wedding song be playing on the radio station I'd be listening to at the exact same time of when I'd also be feeling the most distressed.

On Easter Sunday, 1998-seven months since Rob had passed, while I was at his house (that I abandoned, due to its location in the desert), and inserting the key into the lock on the front door (to check on things, inside), a strong, sweet floral scent caught my full attention to notice some Lily of the Valley flowers that had bloomed in one of the flower beds that Rob had built. Although I had planted several different types of flower seeds in both Rob's flower beds during the summer of 1997, it was only those flowers that grew, on that day, and without having been watered since Rob's passing-over seven months!

The alarm on the wrist watch Rob wore for work still sounds off at the same time, every day, over nine years since his passing, with the same, original battery Rob had put in his watch! Rob had given me a special, precious gift - an imprint of his soul on my bedroom window's screen as proof of his visiting me one very early morning, when he then touched my body the way I had touched his, immediately after he passed.

Like the words to the wedding song, Rob and I left to fate to choose for us implies, the love Rob and I feel for each other, will surely last forever. Thank you for allowing me to share this part of my story with you.

Reading this story brought a tear to my eye. I lost my first love to suicide a few years ago, and I have never really felt like he actually left. I've been struggling with actually letting myself believe that there is a way that he could leave signs that he is still watching over me, and I have been trying to find a way to talk about it without people thinking I am crazy. Alot of the things you described in your story have happened to me, more particularly in my dreams. I am extremely sorry for your loss, but I am so glad I read your story. 😁

I'm happy that your experiencing a more peaceful journey with the ROB in your life. My ROB is nothing like yours, but I'm curious to find others that are able to speak to them for hour long conversations as I am able to?

Shane-You're very welcome. I thank you for calling Rob's and my story "beautiful". You summed he and I up very nicely!

miriah-I am very glad you found Rob's and my story to be "wonderful" and "spectacular"! The main reason why I shared my story with you and as many others as I am able to, is to demonstrate not only how powerful love is, but also how a part of our universe actually functions. I elaborated on the details in my completed (over 400 single-spaced) paged memoir; couldn't do it here, of course.

Nichole-Am so elated you were "touched" and were glad to have read Rob's and my story. Rob's a very nice guy-"here" and "there". Rob will be in my heart, mind, body and soul forever! Thank you, Nichole!

Tom-What can I say that someone else hasn't already?

I, I who have nothing
I, I who have no one
Adore you
And want you so
I'm just a no one
With nothing to give you but oh
I love you

He, he buys you diamonds
Bright, sparkling diamonds
But believe me, dear when I say,
That he can give you the world,
But he'll never love you the way
I love you

He can take you any place he wants
To fancy clubs and restaurants
But I can only watch you with
My nose pressed up against the window pane

I, I who have nothing
I, I who have no one
Must watch you
Go dancing by
Wrapped in the arms of somebody else
When darling it's I
Who loves you

I love you
I love you
I love you

This is a beautiful story. It just goes to show that not all spirits are evil or demons. Even though there will be some who say other wise. Our loved ones just want us to know that they are always with us and that they love us as much as we do them. That not even death can destroy that love and if you remember and cherish them, then they live on within us. Thank you Kathy for sharing your story with us.
