As Jill sat down it only took a moment for the intensity of this moment to sink in. At last she had come face to face with spirit of Catherine's father, Hezekiah, the family patriarch, her great-grandfather, the man who had built the farmhouse she now called home. She thought about how hard life had been for his family and about the losses he suffered, and as she witnessed him now sitting there sobbing and broken, tears flooded her own eyes and she longed to set him free.
"Grandfather," she began, "Seth and I love this beautiful old house; we want to take care of it for you, and we want it to be a place where love grows again. You are welcome to stay here with us as long as you like, but I don't want you to be sad anymore; what's done is done and it can't be undone, but Naomi and Catherine have long since forgiven you, and they have moved on to the light. You can go and join them whenever you are ready; they are waiting for you on the other side, and Jacob is too."
