A very High Medium

My Aunt B in England is a medium - in fact, she is one of the most celebrated mediums in the UK. She is a minister for the spiritualist church and she is one of the most beautiful special people I know. I stayed with her and my Uncle for a few days when I went to visit and we had wonderful talks well into the night: about religion, politics and family. I never ask personal questions relating to her skills. I always thought that it was too much to ask of a woman I admire and love so much. One night I finally asked the question that I been wanting to ask since September. My Aunt was queit for a moment and then answered:

"She has passed through and told me -I can sing again"

My Mum danced and sung competitively as a young girl and loved every minute of it. Unfortunately, it didn't provide money for her family and she had to give it up and work in the local factory at fourteen. She never gave up though and I have many childhood memories of her tap dancing around the kitchen singing songs from her childhood. As time wore on, her voice grew huskier with age and medication, until she couldn't hold a note anymore.

I now go to sleep each night with an image of my Mum tap dancing her way across the heavens singing at the top of her voice and smiling her wonderful smile. My Aunt B is a wonderful woman and will never know the joy she has brought to me in this sad time. In my eyes, she is a very High Medium.....

    I am smiling that your mother is singing. I feel that my brother has found his smile again. He likes show tunes. Maybe he and your mom can put on a show in heaven. :) We'll see shooting stars and the aurora borealis here when they do.
