Bill and Moira

Here is another nice story of a life-after-death encounter between loved ones, as told by author Trudy Harris for Guideposts. I have read or heard hundreds of such stories. Click here to watch a video of Dr. Jannis Amatuzio, author of Forever Ours, brilliantly recount such stories from her own experience.

In my view, life after death is not a question of belief. An enormous amount of evidence overwhelmingly supports it. If someone chooses not to believe in life after death, they haven’t read the thousands of stories like this that are out there and available to all. To dismiss all such stories is to state that all the storytellers are either lying, hallucinating or deluded. Those who have experienced such post-life visits know that what they saw, heard and felt is as real as the computer you’re reading this on.


"Stairway to Heaven" by Jim Warren (

Bill and Moira were married for more than 40 years. They lived in a beautiful home overlooking a lovely lake and garden.

You could count on seeing them together at Mass each Sunday, and it was only at the end of Moira’s life that I realized Bill did not actually belong to that church but nonetheless faithfully accompanied her.

They did everything together: golf, bridge, dancing and socializing. They were now, in their retirement years, reaping the rewards of lots of hard work and sacrifice in raising their family.

And then came the news. Moira was diagnosed with a fast-growing pancreatic tumor, and she was declining quickly. They would greet me, each time I visited, sitting together at the kitchen table sharing a cup of tea.

They were a very devout couple with a deep and abiding faith in God and in each other, and they remained that way always. In the evening, before dinner, it was their habit to sit together in their lovely master bedroom, sipping a glass of wine, listening to beautiful music. Moira died there, with Bill beside her, many days too soon for them.

A few weeks later, Bill called and asked to see me. He seemed upset and anxious to talk. “Please don’t think I’m crazy,” he said, “but I have to tell you what happed last night. I was sitting in our bedroom, thinking about Moira and how much I missed her, when all of a sudden she was standing in front of me.

“She was dressed in a beautiful white gown that seemed to shine from within and came toward me with her arms open wide. I stood up to dance with her and could feel her arms around me, her cheek and her body close to mine.

“After a minute or so she leaned back and looking directly at me, let me know that this was the only time she could come to me this way. There were no real words, but when she smiled, I understood that she wanted me to be at peace. She was so beautiful and happy, as if she was young again.”

I knew then that Bill would find his way.

Phil’s eBook, The Logic of Living a Spiritual Life: Supporting a Life of Faith Through Logic and Reason, is now available for 99 cents on Amazon.

Order it at

In this eBook, you’ll find answers to questions like:
• What is the cornerstone of a spiritual life, and why?
• What is the secret to liberating yourself from other people’s judgments and expectations?
• Why is there an exception to “Everything happens for a reason”?

Those who worship logic instead of God are only half right. Not only is it logical to believe in God and to live a faith-based life, the existence of a loving, benevolent God that governs all creation is perhaps the only systematic worldview that explains every aspect of life.
