Kathy Wakile is taking to her Bravo Blog to open up about her late father. Kathy explains what an emotional night it was for her and Rich after speaking with the medium, who delivered messages to the couple from both of their fathers.
Kathy writes, “The first night with the medium, Tina Powers, was so unbelievable. We were both very skeptical about mediums and talking to people in the afterlife. However we’re open minded and decided to see what would happen. You can imagine our surprise when Tina started to mention things that no one even knew about. Rich and I both have such deep relationships with people who have passed on and our strong connections came through. That moment when we communicated was life changing for me and Rich; all in that room felt the depth.
Rich’s dad was a wonderful man. He cared for everyone in our family; he was the go to guy, and a man who had a huge heart. From the very beginning he treated me like one of his own daughters, and I always felt like I was. When Tina brought up the video, that just broke Rich. I think the hardest part about seeing your departed loved one on video is hearing their voice along with their image. Even though there isn’t a day that goes by that we don’t think of our fathers, it was really profound for someone to tell us that they are with us and back it up with her comments, because we know he is with us, and we feel his presence.
As for me with my dad, I learned he believed that I had the strength to stand strong and he knew I was getting big love and support from Rich and my kids. He did not worry about me in the love department or if I would be taken care of emotionally. Realizing that he heard me, that was a spiritual moment. I always knew my father loved me. But if I’m being honest, at that moment, I just wanted to hear it. I’m sure you all can understand. It is hard to describe, but I will be forever grateful for that experience.
It’s been almost 11 years since my father has passed on, and there isn’t a day that I don’t talk to him. Sometimes I find his response through other people or situations and sometimes I don’t even look for a response, I just know. I know he hears me and know that he’s proud of me. After all these years, one of the most important thing that stands out to me in that last heartfelt conversation was his response. During his last days he wasn’t thinking of himself, he was thinking of his children. A true father till the end.”
