In memory of PFC. Nathaniel A. Given, Died December 27,2006 Serving During Operation Iraqi Freedom. I did not know him personally he was my husbands best friends son. He came to my dream one night after his death. I don't know why he chose me but I am open to accepting spirits who look for me and compelled to share their message to their loved ones. He showed me the last day he spent with his family he showed me details of his going away party. Details that I knew nothing about. In my dream I saw this soldier. He was face to face with me, his eyes sparkled like diamonds I wasn't sure if they were blue or grey, I just know they pierced my heart. I felt so "ln Love" my heart hurt so much. I believe this was the love he felt for his parents. Then he showed me the last day he spent with them with all the details. I was compelled to write my dream down. I was afraid but I wrote it down for his parents invited them over and gave it to them .They confirmed the details. He inspired my poems.
