The Last time I Saw My Father Alive

July 2, 2024

“I am a wife, sister, daughter, and mother of two young children. I have experienced grief in my life, but never to the extent I felt in September of 2017. A week after his seventy-first birthday, my dad passed away.

I’ve always believed in God, Heaven, and Angels. I asked my dad in his final days if he was going to become an Angel. With labored breath, he said, “I don’t want to talk about that.” Then I asked if he wanted me to pray with him. He nodded, so we held hands and prayed together. I requested that God let him know how much he was loved, take his pain away, let him know we would all be okay if he had to leave us, and to show him beautiful healing light. That night, I left my dad’s bedside and glanced back for one more good-bye as he blew me a kiss. This was the last time I saw my father alive.

The lyrics of a song I listened to after his passing about wanting to make a father proud touched me deeply. When he was alive, he told me he was proud of me. He told me I was beautiful. He told me I was talented. I never listened; I brushed off his compliments, thinking he just said it because that’s what dads are supposed to say. I wish it hadn’t taken his death for me to believe him. But in the same breath, I am thankful to have received the Divine message of his pride in me. And that wouldn’t have been possible without Jeanne.

I have always been intrigued by spiritual mediums, and when I saw a local coffee shop was hosting a group reading, I read about Jeanne and immediately purchased my ticket. I was afraid to admit how desperately I wanted to hear from my dad. I told myself it would be neat to hear others connect with loved ones, and I believed that if no one came through for me, that would be okay.

When I arrived that night, I could feel something special in the air. Jeanne came to me and said there was a man there who wanted to talk to me and was telling me not to leave. I knew it was my dad right away. It shocked me that he was telling her to not let me leave, because I had been considering it. I had left my baby, whom I always put to sleep, at home for bedtime. When I had sat down, I’d thought to myself, if this is getting to be too long and she passes by me without any Angel messages, I may have to sneak out to get home to the baby.

While I wasn’t looking for “proof,” Jeanne had it, and many more points that confirmed to me my dad was there talking to her, like how he was standing up and pointing to his legs saying how great he felt. He had been in pain and unable to walk for a few years before he passed—but Jeanne had no way of knowing that.

The biggest message was when she told me he was beaming with pride for me. Hearing this reminded me of all the things he had said when he was alive that I didn’t take time to listen to. Hearing through Jeanne that he’s proud of me opened my heart in a way I didn’t know could be opened. The lesson I learned and continue to learn from Jeanne through her presence and her writing is that even though I didn’t appreciate my father’s words while he was here, I can find a new appreciation through her Divine message from him.

When my dad passed away, my grief felt like cement poured into my chest. It would hit me hard at random times and knock the wind out of me. But there is a reason that clichés like “It feels like a weight was lifted” exist. I know this to be true because that’s the feeling I experienced after hearing from my father through Jeanne. My life shifted, and my grief decreased because I became open to messages from Heaven. That night changed my life, and I hope that by reading my story and the other messages in this book, others can find comfort in truly believing that our loved ones are never far from us. God placed people like Jeanne on Earth to show us the truth in this.
