If you could have anyone you know, who is now deceased, come back to visit you for 24 hours ... who would it be and how would you spend that time?

yes that would be my grandfather it`s been fifteen years since he slipped from this world and not a day goes buy that i don`t think of him he was always there for me when no one else would be my day with my grandfather would be i`d take him in his weak tea and toast for breakfast i`d help him fix the bed then we`d do the dishes always yacking . he`d take his morning stroll outside i can see him sliding his hand back and forth over his shiny bald head having a scratch as he does so then he`d convince me that we needed to drive to the next town for something ( we really didn`t need ) he would take the old dirt track in his old white valiant speeding along at 100mph as i clung on for dear life ( he only had one eye and was almost blind in his remaining eye) once there we would have a cuppa at the little coffee shop before returning home it would be time for his granny nap after awaking a couple of hours later be needed to see his girls so off we would go down to the club for his shot of scotch or two i would join him with that he taught me only the best will do when it comes to scotch after a couple of hours we would saunder up the hill home he would always complain that some one made the hill higher while we were inside . once home totally exhausted he would lie upon his bed for a much needed rest he would insist on a very light tea he only ever ate as much as a bird in a meal then after a great warm tight hug we`d say goodnight.

That's wonderful that God took him without him having to suffer.

if there's someone i'd like to visit me, it would be my mom. i lost her,very unexpectedly, in 2000 (aneurism). i wasn't prepared, she was just 68, very strong, very much alive. after her attack, there was no chance for us to talk anymore, i'm glad i got to say i love you to her the day before in our regular phone conversation, when she was still conscious and can hear and comprehend what i say. she visits me in my dreams from time to time. and i know she's just around, and still praying for me like she used to. i miss her. given a day to be with her, i'd spend the whole of it talking with her and kissing her and hugging her.

It's nice to at least think about what we'd do and say if we could really do this isn't it?

yes, but somehow when you're with someone very close to you, you don't even have to think at all, it comes out spontaneously. and the best thing is when you don't even have to say a thing and you just both know what's the message, moments when you just feel comfortable being together in silence.

I'd want it to be my dad, and we'd go shopping, because that's what he always liked to do with me. We used to hit his favorite book and music stores and spend hours just browsing. He had severe rheumatoid arthritis, but no matter how much he used to hurt, he was always ready to go whenever I came to town. It's been 20 years, and I'd love to see him again.

If I could have anyone come back it would be my dad. I'msure he has visited many times (I can sense and smell his after shave) but to actually have a good heated discussion and let him win would be good...

I sense my husband visiting me as well, but I'd like to really be able to have a discussion with him as well.

I would like a visit from my Grandmother. She is a very nice lady and always good to me. She's been gone for more than 10 years. But memories of her still lingers.

What would you do for the 24 hours? Just visit? I bet you'd find plenty to talk about.

I really would love that to happen but it would be hard to pick who if I could only pick one and I would spend the day locked up with them and ask many questions so maybe I could ease the worlds problems by telling them the truth of what is.

It would be my dad. He passed away 7 years ago and to this day, I miss him so much. My husband and I, with my siblings and mom, would often reminisce about him and we'd talk about how he would enjoy all these new technologies that has recently sprung out -- mobile phones, DVDs, etc. If he could be with us for a day, I'd probably sit beside him as we do marathon watching of action and war movies that he never got to see. I'm sure he would also enjoy meeting my one-year-old niece who never got to know him.

I would like it to be my Grandmother and I would spend that time telling her that I wished I would have listened to her when she warned up of about my Marriage and I would try to make up for the years that we hardly spoke because of my Marriage. I never stopped loving her though but I had to put my Family first even though I did realise that she was right about the Guy I married.

I would love that,but I don't know who I would choose. I love them all so much. The comforting thought for me is that I will be reunited with them in Heaven some day.
