Last night in my dream, she said,

"Hi, Kackie."

It was clear, calm, and sounded just like her. Just a greeting.

My birth name is Katherine, named after my father's mother who died suddenly the morning I was born. She was only 57. I was to be named Bridgette, but instead was named Katherine. As a child, my parents, and only my parents, would often call me Kackie. My grandmother went by Kappie - I suspect it accidentally developed from that.

But into my adult years, they still would occasionally call me Kak, or Kacki. It was a term of endearment.

My dreams are giving me what I need  - real visits with them, movies with them in which I co-star.
