Our son Billy crossed over to heaven on June 26, 2004, four days before his 29th birthday. Billy was killed instantly while riding his ATV at night, hitting a tree.
My first goal was to try to survive the next day and make sure that my wife Jo-Anne and our other son, Robert, were OK. Beyond that, my goal was to find a way to make a connection with our son, Billy, in heaven.
I had tried on my own in different ways for a few months without any success. That all changed when my wife Jo-Anne asked me if I would be willing to visit a spirit messenger named Vicki Monroe. I said yes.
What helped signal my recovery and my turning point was a meeting we had with Vicki on February 16, 2005. Our reading with Vicki was amazing and helped take a huge load off of my mind. I was able to connect with Billy and hear things that only my wife and I would know. He told us that he was OK. This was comforting, and it was a beginning my gradual healing process.
My healing process has been a continuing process. Our visit with Vicki was a part of my healing; the other part was that I had been researching on different ways that our loved ones can and do make contact with us, and I noticed that through photographs, they will give us signs that they are nearby.
So about two months later, I began to take photographs at random to see if I could receive any signs from Billy through that form, and sure enough we did, in the form of spirit orbs, spirit essence and my favorite, the heart-shaped images of the moon, street lights and of our Christmas tree lights.
