Dream of:29 August 1983 "A Second Death"
After returning to Portsmouth, I had learned my brother Adolph had come back to life. I had seen him briefly, but I hadn't had a chance to talk with him. After I had seen him, Adolph had gone to the Gallia County Farm to stay with my step-grandfather Clarence andmy grandmother Mabel. While on the Farm, he had disappeared and no one had been able to find him. Finally my father and my mother had discovered Adolph's dead body in some brush after it had been lying there for 5 days. We subsequently learned Clarence had been working in the brush with the tractor, had backed up while Adolph had been standing behind the tractor and had run over Adolph with one of the large tractor wheels.
I asked my mother what she had thought during those 5 days when Adolph had been missing. Had she thought about dragging the creek for Adolph's body? She said someone had given them at least some hope.
As I talked with my mother, I realized she thought Clarence had purposely backed over Adolph and killed him. She implied that some marks on Adolph indicated he had died a violent death.
I asked her if she had any pictures taken of Adolph after he had returned to life. I picked up a pile of pictures lying nearby. Some pictures of my brother Chris were among the pictures, along with some pictures of Adolph taken before he had died the first time.
One picture had been taken in Tabriz,Iran. I figured my father had taken the picture while visiting me in Tabriz.
I walked into a room in which my father and Clarence were sitting. I stepped up to my father, put my arms around him and said, "I love you."
I held him as closely as I could and cried. Then I walked over to Clarence and put my arms around him.
