My name is Patty Hart and my husband Dave and I have an amazing daughter named Lauren Elizabeth Hart who at the age of just 23, transitioned to the Spirit world on November 3, 2020 after a year long battle with leukemia. We always knew that Lauren was an incredibly strong and resilient young woman, however her tremendous will to live and determination to get her life back revealed a strength that we had never before witnessed in her. Lauren fought this battle for exactly 364 days. It did not end as we had all hoped, but Lauren faced this long and painful battle with so much kindness to others and always her quirky sense of humor. It was a humbling thing to witness. Lauren was the absolute light of our life and the center of our world!!  Needless to say it has been an incredibly painful 3 1/2 years since we lost Lauren, and finding our way without her has been the greatest challenge of our lives. That all changed a couple of weeks ago. We have experienced a shift like no other in our universe, and it is the result of an incredible chain of events coming together in the most divine way possible.  We now know that we are never without her!!


         My husband and I made the decision to move to Bluffton from Arizona last May, and we moved into our new home on February 15th of this year. We had only visited here once before, but we immediately fell in love with this beautiful area. We also felt, having never spent any time on the east coast, that this might be a good place for us to move forward and make new memories. It was the middle of March when a good friend of mine from Carefree, Arizona suggested I might enjoy reading a book called "Still Right Here" by Suzanne Giesemann. She knew I had been struggling since we moved here and was feeling disconnected and having a difficult time feeling Lauren's presence. I looked up the book on Amazon and immediately ordered it! It sounded like something that might help me in some way. I had no idea just how much!!  It took me several weeks to begin to read it, but I did at the beginning of April. I read until I got to the part in the book where Suzanne was telling the story of her friend Irene and Irene's  daughter Carly who had transitioned in February 2013.  As soon as I began reading their story, I was instantly so emotionally moved that I had to stop reading. It reminded me so much of my experience with Lauren. I had to take some time. 

     Dave and I had a trip planned for the end of April to go to a family beach house on Camano Island, Wa where we have celebrated our daughter's birthday on April 28th every year since her passing. It was her favorite place on earth, and it's also where we scattered her ashes out over the water. I thought this would be a good time to continue reading about Irene and Carly. It was a beautiful Friday afternoon, 2 days before Laurens 27th birthday, and I decided to sit out on the deck and listen to the water and read. It took only a couple of paragraphs before I was sobbing. I was reading about someone who had gone through something so similar to what I had experienced with Lauren, and it touched me deeply. I understood this mothers indescribable pain and I thought that just maybe, she might understand mine. But what was even more incredible, was the love and light that I felt coming from Irene right off of the pages I was reading. It gave me a glimmer of something I hadn't felt for a very long time. Hope. Maybe I too could find my way.  

  I had to know some more about Carly, so I looked up the foundation that Irene started in her daughter's name. It is a beautiful tribute to Carly and her desire to dedicate her life to children. When I finished reading I found that there was an email address that said it was possible to reach out to Irene!  What was even more incredible was seeing that she is living here in Bluffton/Hilton Head! This could not be a coincidence, I thought. I just knew I had to reach out. I was thinking I'd do it when we got home from Washington, but something told me to do it right away!  So I did. The chain of events that followed is almost unbelievable , but all true. As soon as I finished my email, there was a delivery of flowers and a cake for my daughter's birthday from a friend in Cave Creek, Arizona.I immediately went to call her and thank her. While we were talking, I mentioned the book I was reading and the woman Irene whom I had just emailed, saying how much I hoped she'd be willing to talk with me. As I'm speaking to my friend,  another phone call comes through.. ...It's Suzanne Giesemann! I knew immediately she was the author of the book that I was reading, but had no idea why she would be calling me! I took the call and was surprised to learn that Irene was also in the room with her. It turns out that they are neighbors just a few doors down from each other! I was truly at a loss for words. She told me that Irene had sent her my email and she walked over to Irene's house to tell her she wanted to offer me a reading with her on our daughter's birthday!!  I couldn't believe that this was actually happening. I was literally standing on the deck of my daughter's favorite place on earth looking out at the very spot where we scattered her ashes and this was happening! This could not be a coincidence! The fact that I had reached out to Irene because of the connection I felt to her because of our daughters. The fact that she lives in the same place that we just moved. The fact that she and the author of the book I'm reading also live just a few doors down from each other.  The fact that Irene shared my email with Suzanne and Suzanne felt guided to offer me a reading. The fact that my daughter's birthday was just 2 days away, and Suzanne was actually available on that day to even offer me this reading!!  All of these factors coming together in perfect alignment just had to be the work of something far beyond our comprehension! 

        My husband and I were gifted with the most incredible, life changing reading! Suzanne brought through no less than 23 verifiable validations from Lauren, as well as life altering messages from her that have literally transformed the way we look at life and afterlife! Lauren is always with us!! She showed us through Suzanne that we are not here without her! There is no doubt in our minds that Suzanne connected to Lauren!! To say that it has given us comfort and a  tremendous sense of peace that has not existed since the day she was diagnosed would be a massive understatement. We could never have imagined that it was possible to feel this way!  How wrong we were! 

         Having shared this story, one of the most remarkable things about all of this has been the way it all came about. There is no doubt in our minds that this was all set in motion by our loved ones across the Veil ( Lauren and unexpectedly, Carly). The way all of the "stars aligned" is no simple coincidence. We feel such overwhelming love and gratitude for this  most unexpected chain of events. 

We no longer just know that we are always connected to Lauren and our loved ones across the Veil, We BELIEVE IT!!                                                                                                                                                                                                       

~With so much love, Dave and Patty Hart
