I had a dream about Patrick last night. I will say that I do believe in dreams like this, and feel free to think I'm nuts.

I was in bed, and he kept poking me to wake me up (which was something he always did and thought was hilarious). Once I woke up he he instantly started asking about monster trucks, and certain people. He then popped out with a wallet full of pictures. (Patrick's wallet was always bursting at the seams because it was so full. He had cards, even old and expired ones. Tons of business cards. But very few pictures. In the dream his wallet was bursting at the seems with pictures.) Pictures of family and friends that have passed away. The pictures brought lots of tears, but also a sense of peace. Then he started reminding me about different conversations we'd had in the past. Things that he wanted to do but never got the chance.

The dream was so real that when I woke up I expected him to be sitting at the end of the bed. Reality came rushing back and punched me in the gut. Let me tell you that's a horrible way to wake up (and I couldn't sleep after it). Once the crying subsided, I started thinking about the conversations we used to have. Now I just gotta put all my thoughts together and figure out a place to start, and where to go from there.

I agree 100% with everyone comments here...they say that when our loved one's pass they can come to us in dreams and many other ways. HE was 'TELLING YOU" he was happy and with the people he loved you even said it yourself his wallet was bursting at the seams all the pictures represents 'others' who have cross over and he is telling you they were there greeting him. You should go to his wallet as hard as it may be and see who died that was in his wallet and that will give you some comfort who was there with him. As I said in another post regarding dreams my husband Ed died 10-1-2012 and I have yet to have had a dream of him. So Consider yourself lucky. I am also very sorry for your loss. Take Care ...........Colleen

I think its wonderful that you got this dream visit Sam. Even though the waking reality was difficult, you did say that Patrick showing you the pictures brought a sense of peace. Perhaps he is telling you he is safe in the arms of those who love him.  And, as far as a place to start...we can only start from where we are. You will find your way Sam, we all little step at a time.  (hugs) Ali.

dreams for me help so much to remember the good times. When Mark was in the hospital.  i'd ask him where he wanted to go the beach, ocean, or some other place we had visited together or wanted to visit, he'd tell me and then i'd say meet me there in your dreams.
