Abstract: A redefining of the meaning of death and grief: this essay explores a rejection of conventional ideas about mourning and describes the experiences of two daughters after they have lost their beloved father. In the one case, it is an evocation of his spirit that feels like a conversation and, in the other, visits by the father to the daughter through palpable signs.
Keywords: mourning; death; sadness; feral; St. Francis; irrational; Holy Ghost; dread; skywriting; cemetery
