Daddys Little Girls

Posted on April 16, 2011

When I was 2 1/2 years old my father died (age 42) suddenly during the night in our living room of a massive blood clot that lodged in his heart. All I knew from that tender age until about the age of 16 was that he died when I was 2 1/2, but I was not told that he died IN our house. For YEARS during the night I would hear slow, footsteps come from the kitchen/living room area, down the hall to our bedrooms (my sister’s room and my room), pause at each room for 10 or 20 seconds, then continue back down the hall from where they had come. When I would hear them I would pull the blanket over my head and feel frozen with fear. It wasn’t that there was anything scary really about it, just that I didn’t know what it could possibly be. I told my mother several times about it and she just shrugged it off and said that the house was old and that the sound was just the “house settling”. I wonder to this day if it was my father checking on us just to make sure we were okay.

When I was 17 and just about ready to graduate from high school my best friend (since age 7) had a very vivid dream about a man coming to her house, asking to speak with her, sitting on the couch and he proceeded to ask many questions about me: about school, my family, my goals, etc. She said that she told him that I was graduating summa cum laude, had gotten a full ride scholarship to a private college, and everything else that she could think of. He suddenly stood up, smiled, and said, “thank you, I just want her to know that I love her and that I’m proud of her.” Then he walked out the front door. He never said who he was or his name. She described him as a tall man with dark eyes, dark hair, and ruddy skin and looked like he worked with his hands.

I told this story to my Mom and she turned white and sat down. She said “that was your Father”. I was skeptical. I did not really know very much about my father, especially about what he looked like. The only photo of him hanging in our house was a black and white picture. I am blonde, blue-eyed, fair skinned, average height—nothing like what my friend had described. My mother told me that my father had dark hair, tan ruddy skin, brown eyes, was 6 foot 4 inches tall, and he worked as an bus mechanic.

I never heard the footsteps again.

    Your best friend did see your father in her dream. sometimes the dead talk to us in our dreams. Your friend had a bonding with you. she possibly heard stories you told her of your dad. Your friend may have had a special ability to communicate with the dead Like a medium. She just communicates with her dreams talking to the deceased. It happens naturally to those kinds of people. So I guess your father was checking up on you by channeling through your friend. It is a pretty amazing story.

    I think thats a very cute story, knowing that your dad is still there and loves and cares for you. I’m just thinking that maybe using a ouija board to talk to him could be a very cool experience for you.

    • Raquel says:

      I don’t mean to be rude but how can you sugest something like that? Do you know anything about ouija boards? They can open a very dangerous portal that sometimes you won’t be able to close again. And when that portal is open ANYTHING can go throu them. Be careful. Never try a ouija board. When I was 8 years old a friend got one for christmas and she call me to try it. I didn’t know what it was and I asked her and she said “is a board to talk to dead people”. Well, I was curious and as soon as I put my hands over that planchette is started moving like crazy. Then I sensed something bad, something really evil. I was only 8 but it was so strong that I could feel all that evil. I moved my hands away inmediatly. I think my friend sensed it too because she did the same at exactly the same time I did it. We both looked at each other and without saying a word I went running to my house. We were so scare we never mention this incident to each other again. Nothing hapen to me after that. I think whatever wanted to come out didn’t have enough time to do it. I have never touch one of those boards again.

      • Raquel says:

        By the way Mindy, your story is very beautiful. Not even death can separate us from the love ones. Physically maybe, but in spirit they are always in our hearts.

          my father died when i was 9 years old, and i am 13 now. i see him every night. he comes in my bedroom, and says goodnight to me.

    • Rosie says:

      I think everyting is just fine the way as it is. Her dad may have moved on after he found out his little girl is doing so well. It is time to let it go. A board is not a good suggetion at all. If she plays it, you neer know who comes through.

    • Skylark says:

      well gee, the ouija board was just an idea…I just say it because i don’t believe in demons. Anyways, i just have a question, if ouija boards are bad then wouldn’t seances be bad too? both things are suppose to communicate with the dead right?

      • Someone says:

        I don’t want to get away from the topic of this story, but is seems to me like you are very young. Any atempt to comunicate with the dead is an open portal for the evil to come throu it. If you want to know more you can check the ouija boards stories in this site.
        Caretaker, can you give a link? Thanks:)

        • Skylark says:

          I’ve read the ouija board stories already and yes most all on here are of bad experiences. But there are good experiences, but no one cares to read of the ouija board stories where nothing happens, so no one puts those stories on here. I do believe that bad things can happen if you use the board, but only if you don’t know who you are talking to. I only recomended the board because she knows that she will be talking to her father. I think that maybe spirits might get angry if you contact them just for fun, but if you are doing it for a good justified reason, perhaps they will let you talk to them. And if anything ‘evil’ comes from using the board, I think it’s just a mad spirit, not a demon. One more thing! I only mentioned seances because I don’t know much about them and no one talks about those on this site, I’ve never read a story about them and there isn’t even a link to them…I think that’s odd…Anyways, thats my thoughts.

          • Mary says:

            Every person I know who has played with a ouija board has terrible stories to report. It’s possible you are not reading the positive stories about ouija boards because there aren’t too many. Do not ever play with ouija boards. You are asking for serious problems if you do.

          • littlemiss says:

            this is why if you don’t know about a subject you don’t go suggesting it to someone. And if you know who you want to talk to, it’s never ever a certainty that that is whom you’ll get when using a ouijja board. Spirits can lie. Never ever use a ouijja board, I would rather remain wondering what there is on the otherside, than finding out for sure.

  3. Rosie says:

    It is a very moving story. How wonderful it is when you know your loved one from the other side still loves you so much. I am sure your dad is proud of you and he thinks about you all the time from the other side.

  4. Diana says:

    Some things just defy explanation…and I think there is a reason for that. Could we really handle the truth if everything were cut and dry? If nothing was mysterious, and we knew everything? I don’t think we could. I think something like that would more than likely drive most of us to madness. There are things in this life that we just aren’t meant to understand. I believe that one day, when we die, everything will be clear and all the pieces of this grand puzzle of the life we live will fit together nicely. Then, and only then, will we be capable of knowing the truth.

  5. madi says:

    that was so lovely to have a famliy member come back from the dead for you and to make you feel ok and better and she bearly new him i just wish that would happen to me that one of the best things in the world because you know you will never see him again untill you died

  6. YVETTE says:

    Wow that is beautiful in a way and calming. To know your father is watching over you it proves that it is not just evil-ness out there and demons.

    P.S. I don’t recommend the ouija board if your father wants to somehow communicate with you he will. :)

  7. Tracey says:

    I Agree with Raquel about the board and the story of your is beautiful also too lost my father to heart attack when he was 44 year old i was only 17 in 1990 serious missed him so much and he did touch my shoulder when i didn’t know what it was at first cause i didn’t believe in paranormal back then till early 30′s.. Again beauitful story.

  8. Adhinferno says:

    1 thing that still stuck in my head: Why is your father comes to your best friend’s dreams? Why don’t he comes to your dreams?
    I think, since he know that you are scared when he visited you (you pull the blanket over your head and feel frozen with fear, when you hear footsteps that possibly is the sound of your father checking on you just to make sure you all were okay), He feels it would be best if he don’t come near you. Just to make you feel comfort. If it’s true, what a good dad you have!
    Anyway, the story is good. Unfortunately, you don’t have a courage to check that sound of footsteps…. Maybe you can meet your father at that time…. Just maybe….
