My dad passed away on Feb 7, 2009 and I have been grieving ever since.
I prayed that God would let me know that he was alright and he did. I had a dream and my dad ws standing at the end of a hall and I was talking to him and he said there was an angel there.
I feel that God sent Dad to me to let me know that he is alright. I was Dad’s only child and I had to do everything by myself; this is the hardest thing I have ever had to go through in my life. I am only 35 and I wasn’t ready to lose my dad at that age. He passed so quickly that I never got the chance to tell him how much I loved him but I believe he knew.
Thank you for letting me submit my story.
