Talking for comfort

Ever find yourself talking to someone who is passed away? I do. My grandmother passed when I was little and at times when I'm sad or feel down, I find that if I go to a room and sit by myself and have a quiet talk to her, it comforts me.

I do it everyday. Sometimes I do it when my husband is around me too. I talk to my daughter and I just carry the conversation and my husband thought I was talking to him. I sometimes feel like I can smell her. That when I talk a lot too. I can smell her so I know she is around me. I have to talk fast because she dont stay that long. I guess being 3 years old, she cant just sit around and listen to me.

I do talk with my grandmother who passed in 2000. I find it a comfort as well, just to get it out i think and keeps her closer in my mind. This month I also had a very good friend that i lost contact with pass away suddenly. She was my ex boyfriend mother and we were quite close. I remained friends for 2 years after we broke up but it was comfortable for his new girlfriend now wife that i hung around so i bowed out, now i regret it deepely. I have talked to her every night since she has passed. She believed that you can communicate with those that have passed not to the freaky having seances but that they are always with you and are there for you. I have found it a great relief and help in greiving to talk to her and let her know my regrets and what she meant to me. Some things you can only say to someone who can't answer you back i think :-)
