Soul Kisses December 2005
November was unseasonably warm
for Colorado. The changes of fall leaves
almost completing their mission. The skies
this year have been the most beautiful I've ever
seen. Personally, my life has been in
rapid rollercoaster transition. In amazing
ways the angels have led me to first one person,
then another - earth angels...
I'm sorry, but there was no

Today's newsletter is written to
honor the seventy years of my Dad's life.
I hadn't physically seen my dad in twelve years
because he lived a thousand miles away from me,
but when we spoke on the phone we could exhaust
even a completely charged cordless phone.
On Friday, October 28, we spoke over the
telephone lines for the last time. He was
scheduled to have open heart surgery on Monday,
October 31. We talked about the upcoming
surgery - he wasn't afraid, he was at peace with
it. He had more important things to think
about - a red Road King Harley that was calling
his name to ride. He had Friday afternoon
till Sunday night to experience the thrill of
his powerful machine and he did just that.
Then on All Hallows Eve, he went
to the hospital to have surgery to repair the
arteries of his heart. At first, the
surgery appeared to be successful, then at the
last minute, things changed. Between phone
calls from my mom keeping me abreast of what was
going on, I contacted a dear friend of mine who
helped me connect with my dad. My friend
connected with him and discovered his transition
home was near. She asked me to meditate
and try to connect with him. In my
emotional state, I didn't think it would be
possible, but it was. He was very happy to
be free of his heavy physical body, yet annoyed
with the doctors for not seeing that there was a
crossover that was causing the problem - after
all, the doctors were experts. Clearly his
physical body was in distress, but there was
immense joy in this union.
Archangel Michael and Archangel
Raphael were there. When Daddy asked if he
could ride his Harley "home" and they said, yes,
he was outta here. He rode the Harley into
the light of God with Archangel Michael and
Archangel Raphael.... Daddy said, "It was
the best ride of my life!"
Grief has no script - no book -
no directions - no guidelines. I know my
dad is riding the universe with his dog and his
skunk - yes, skunk (long story) eating all the
Kentucky Fried Chicken he wants. I hear
him laughing and I hear him making comments
like, "You've put on weight!" directed at me the
day after he crossed (my dad has quite the sense
of humor and says whatever he's thinking...).
I even have pictures of his essence with the
family in front of his Harley the day after his
funeral. I know he's still with me, yet I
cry and I feel sad because I am a humanoid and

I hadn't physically seen my dad
for twelve years - not because we were angry
with one another, it was simply geography.
Yet, I have no guilt over not having "seen" him.
I don't feel as though words were left unsaid,
because more and more will be said - he's still
with me and now he's in a position to give me
even better guidance because he knows ALL.
The numbness of his crossing has
almost worn off, and now, as I hold tightly to
my spiritual beliefs, I grieve, yet I rejoice at
the honor of having such an amazing spirit as he
for my dad and the prospect of his connection
and guidance in the future. I'm keeping a
journal of these connections - of this privilege

death of the physical body to be
horrific. This is simply not
true. The transitioning of the
spirit from the earthly physical
body to life in the angelic realm is
cause for tremendous joy and
celebration - a reunion and welcome
home! Grief of loss is indeed
very real, but the loss is only
physical. The spirit never
dies and is forever connected to
you. Know this for it is true.
itself is glorious. In a
breath, without pain of any kind, we
embrace the spirit into the light of
God - it is truly magnificent!
A profound moment of pure love!
Allow yourselves to
grieve and ask God for help in doing
so. Yet, know, truly
that your loved ones are with you
always.... know that love
never dies... Love is
Your loving angels
I sincerely know that my
spiritual beliefs are what has sustained me in
these days since Daddy's transition. Today
is a new day and Christmas is in a few weeks.
Yes, physically it feels wrong to be celebrating
without my dad, but spiritually I know that each
day is an opportunity to share love and light
with the world. That is why we are all
here, to love and share with others.
I hope sharing my experiences
has brought you comfort or will bring you
comfort when you are grieving a loss.
In love and light,
