Visits 3-25-12

Visits 3-25-12

Last night before I went to bed I prayed for Kathryn to visit me.  To give me comfort even if only that sweet smell.  I hadn’t had that smell around a lot lately and so I prayed for it. 

I woke last night at 2:15 to the sweet smell as strong as ever.  I had spots on my arm that got goose bumps.  Just a little spot like a touch.  I laid there and told Kathryn I loved her with all of my heart.  I talked a bit and then I got up to use the bathroom.  When I got up I got goose bumps all over my body and felt chilled.  It was so strong I couldn’t believe it.  When I got up this morning I actually had a smile on my face.  I think was the first time for a very long time.  Scott even commented on the smile.  He said something like, “It’s nice to see your smile in the morning again.”

So, most of you saw that I wrote to Theresa the Long Island Medium.  I guess I messed up and gave too much info so I will probably never win the free time with her.  That’s ok.  As I watched tonight it was about her daughter’s boyfriend whose friend had died 2 months earlier.  He died of cancer very quickly but that is not the important thing here.  He told her that he is ok and that he really appreciated all of the things they were done in his honor.  It made me think that Kathryn would say she is fine and that she too appreciated the things we are doing in her honor.  She would be so proud of us and happy at what we are doing in her honor and memory.  This made me feel pretty good.

I also had a visit today.  The Jehovah Witness people came by to my house today.  I always listen and chat with them.  They know about Kathryn.  They read me several verses from the bible that really did comfort me.  I know a lot of people don’t like them but I feel they are just trying to do what God has asked us all to do and that is to spread the word of God.  Anyhow I appreciated them sharing verses from the bible to try to bring comfort to me.  I also was able to share with them all the crazy things I have prayed for and they said that my prayers were fine and expected. 

What have I prayed for?  First of course I prayed for Kathryn to be healed.  I prayed every day and many times a day.  I told God that we would be witnesses of his great power and love if Kathryn was healed.  I hoped that each morning towards the end that she would wake up and open her eyes like she did every morning but instead of laying there she would get up out of bed and say good morning.  Once she passed away I prayed that she would come back to life.  I prayed to God and Jesus to resurrect her just like Jesus resurrected Lazereth.  I don’t know how to spell it sorry.  I prayed this for at least a month after her death.  I told God that we would spread the word about his great power again.  Of course I have also told God how angry I am with him. 

Many people have lost loved ones and they finally get by.  I know that I will never “get over” Kathryn’s death but I will find peace.  I’m closer today than yesterday.  I have to remember that I will see her again when the resurrection comes. 

I put the family room back together after painting.  I love the pictures on the wall.  I love those photos that Mooselips took of Richard and Kathryn at camp on the beach.  Now they are in the most used room in the house and they look beautiful.  Thank you Mooselips for the beautiful photos.

Good Night


  1. I smiled reading you woke up with a smile. Don't you apologize ever ever for anything you do, write or say regarding Kathryn. The fact that you keep getting up each morning and resemble a human is a huge accopmplishment. You and your famly have had to survive the hardest thing ever...and you keep doing it each day.
    I am glad the Jehova Witness's gave you some peace. They are nice people and they gave you a moment of something good...YAY!
    I watched Long Island Medium las night too...I hope she read our minds on the west coast to call you. You deserve it. I want it for you too. There was an article in the TNT this weekend about people who have passed communicating with those close to them- it was really good :)
    I just imagine Kathyrn pulling all kinds of tricks out to help you...God is with us and her.
    I am headed to the Easy coast next week and will pray hard for Theresa to hear your need.
    The weatherman said this should be a week of rainbows...
    Much love, prayers, and I hope a few more moments of peace this week :)

  2. Your family's love for each other was deep and rich and true and it is quite apparent that Kathryn's passing will not diminish that even the tiniest amount. Instead it will intensify it. It really does just spill out of you at this time and flows to where it is needed. That was very true of Kathryn. She doesn't overflowed and people were swept away in a flood of the greatest kind (but were safe because they rode back in the next wave!).

    A smile is on my face every time I think of her, and the rest of Team Bradley also. I love thinking of those brief moments on the beach at camp last summer when I for the first time recorded outright indisputable proof of the love that Richard and Kathryn had for each other. I am so happy to know that those photos are bringing you some peace.

    I can't thank you enough for the great gift of your children to all of us out and I hope and pray that you continue to find comfort in the loving remembrance of one of the newest and brightest stars in the heavens.

    Love - Mooselips

  3. I remember along time ago getting to spend sometime with you,your brothers, Mother and Father. The joy and openness you and your family showed me for the short time we spent together I will never forget. Loosing a child is something no one should have to go thru my thoughts and prayers are with you and all your family.

    P:S I don't know if you will remember this but you said to me one day along time ago that if you ever are blessed with the chance to have a daughter that you would name her Sunshine Marie.
    Well looking at your daughters picture I can say that you were blessed with sunshine if only for a short period of time.

    Take care and I will put you and your daughter in my prayers

  4. Thanks Don,
    I remember Sunshine Marie. Kathryn was certainly our sunshine even without the name. She was truly a blessing and I am so grateful that I had her for 21 years and had such an amazing relationship with her. She was the best daughter any one could ever hope for.
    Thanks for the words and prayers,
