This is the second time in a year that a newly departed deceased person came to me in a dream state.
My father is in his 70's. For 35 years, he was best friends with a man I'll call Tom. Tom and my father worked together for years, moved to various
cities together (they were both married to woman, they were really like inseparable brothers). They were a hoot when they were together. I felt as
though Tom was my uncle and genuinely cared for my fathers kids and family and vise verse.
In 2003, Tom seemed to become almost delusional. He would make up elaborate stories involving adventures he and my father would go on. The problem is,
he would also tell false stories in hopes of getting customers to go for various loans he was brokering. One day, they were in a pub and Tom spun a
tail involving my father and Tom in front of a prospective customer. My father owned a business and his reputation was everything. He couldn't go
along with the story or he'd jeopardize his business and ruin his reputation. He confronted Tom and told him it never happened and he can't go along
with it. Tom was upset, left, moved literally a week later far away and they never had contact after that point. My father was obviously hurt. I
haven't heard Tom's name or thought about him for 20 years as I was living 4 hours from my father when Tom lived in the same city as my father and
had no reason to think or talk about him.
The weirdest thing happened this past Friday night. Tom came to me in a dream state and communicated that he had died a few years earlier. He said he
knew my father was thinking heavily of him and to let him know. For some reason, I asked him how long it had been since he saw his children. He said
years and years. I was surprised.
The next day, I told my father of the dream. He said he was shocked as he and his wife were just talking about where Tom could be only days earlier.
My father said Tom was on his mind, but he had no idea on how to reach him.
I ran a background report and found out that he truly died two years ago. I found his adult kids and sent them a Facebook message asking if they knew
where their father was (if he was alive), etc. His adult son emailed back and said he hasn't heard or spoke to his father in over 10 years.
We found Tom's obituary and have not communicated to his adult kids. I'm torn as I don't know if it's my place.
Very strange my father's best friend would come to me like that to ask me to convey to my father he died a few years ago.
