I heard Marie speak to
me. It was like a thought in my own head, but it was clearly Marie. She said,
"aww, honey, I love you", like she had spoken to me many times while she was
alive. I answered her, " I love you too, Marie". She said, "I need you to do
me a favor". I felt certain that she would give me a message of love for her
daughter or something along those lines. I said, "Sure, Marie, what is it?"
She then said, "I want you to get off Jill's back about Mark." Jill is Marie's
daughter and Mark is Jill's long distance boyfriend. Jill is my age. Marie
then went on, "Jill grew up with love in her life, Mark didn't. He was an
unwanted child, and not shown love like Jill was, and if anybody can teach him
how to love, it's Jill." I was surprised at Marie's request, but after
considering the news Marie had given me, things made sense where Mark is
