Q When you were meeting with mediums since Chris’ death you kept very good notes. Did you know you would eventually write a book?
A Absolutely not. I thought I was keeping notes so that at some later time sitting on a porch in a rocking chair I would have something to refer back to.
Q Did you buy into mediums from the beginning.
A From the beginning I was given enough evidence to know that I was communicating with someone I loved on the other side. The more evidence I was given the more convinced I became
Q Did you ever meet with a medium and flat out strike out
A I did. It was on his birthday about 3 ½ months after he crossed. But I wasn’t about to throw in the towel. Like chefs and relief pitchers I believe a medium can have an off day. I also believe spirits are more comfortable with some mediums than others. And the reason for that is …… I have no friggin Idea.
Q Give me a few examples of mediums telling you things no one else could know.
A On June 30th 2016 I met with Andrew Anderson for the first time and he told me Chris acknowledged that I was planting something recently at his grave and that I was wearing a bracelet Chris gave me. I was in fact at his grave that vey morning planting shamrock seeds. I had also put on a bracelet Chris gave me in Disney World when he was 5 or 6 years old. I hadn’t put in on in 16 years but it was indeed under my right cuff.
Q Writing had to keep you in grief. Did you ever consider just walking away from it
A Not once. While the writing at times did keep me in grief it also kept me connected to him. And although sometimes the grief felt overwhelming it was worth it…. Every time.
