I didn’t know what to expect when I went to see Joseph LoBrutto who is among the Top Mediums in America. I was very open and had a wonderful, enlightening experience. It was a funny, heart warming reunion between myself, my dad Mark, my maternal grandfather George and his wife, my maternal grandmother Edna.
Joseph is very visual and auditory, and I love the way he would describe what was happening from his perspective. He would tell me things like “Ok, grandma is taking me outside now” or “We are going back to your childhood, they are showing me Christmas..” or “George is going into the summer months now..” or “We are still in Michigan right now”… or “Your dad is a really funny guy..Ok, ok, Mark, I will tell her! Just let me think of how I want to say this…” Ha ha ha. It was really great, a total journey. The room really felt alive.
It started with my dad, and my grandfather interrupted, lol, and then it went back to my dad, and then my grandfather had his moment and then my grandmother, who Joseph said that he was surprised that she stood back and let my grandpa go first. So funny. Anyone who knows my grandparents would remember their ability to talk over each other. So many comments that were made were so spot on with their personalities, lots of laughter in this reading along with tears and hugs.
When my dad stepped up to the plate, these are the things that he said to confirm himself and let me know it was him along with Joseph’s feeling/listening observations: (These are the things that Joseph knew up front before I confirmed them)
Joseph asked if my dads name starts with an “M” like Micheal or Mark and did he have an amazing sense of humor and the father of three girls. Well my dad name is Mark and I am one of 3 girls. He told Joseph that he “had his hands full his entire life with his girls.” Dad called me the “Go-Between” between my two sisters, that I was always the optimistic one and never took sides between the two.
Joseph confirmed that his death was quick, not expected and passed away from the heart/chest and the importance of the month of April. (He died April 5th 1980) Dad was always caring towards me, protective, that I always went to him for advice, his loss was devastating for me. Dad also knew that I have two boys and he watches over my boys, and if he were alive today he would be in their life all the time, they need that role model.
Next up at bat, my grandpa George. Joseph asked about my grandparents home if it was in Michigan next to the apple orchards. (That is a big Yes!! lol..) Gpa showed Joseph that he had a problem with his legs, walking, shifting, etc…. right on again. Gpa showed Joseph Christmas with the whole family there every year, and how he loved playing his organ and singing Christmas carols as we all sang along. Gpa mentioned the hay rides as well as the bonfires he loved having. 100% Bonfire Guy.
Joseph asked about the Great Lakes, the boat, the fishing, the house on the lake that Gpa showed him. Gpa took Joseph to the 4th of July, that he loved, that he always hosted at his house. Then, silence. That was all he had to say, LMAO. Or, my beautiful, feisty little grandma had waited long enough, lol.
Swing batta, here comes Edna.. My Grandma! Joseph confirmed that she was married to George. Surprised that she let him talk so long. LOL Joseph confirmed that she died quickly, peacefully in her sleep. Gma mentioned her ‘mothers’ ring, my mom confirmed she has the Grandmother ring that belonged to her. Gma then took Joseph to her yard, where he saw sunflowers, a hummingbird feeder and she gardened a lot. She spoke of how much she loved her flower beds around the house, and loved her landscaping.
Immediately, Joseph said “KITCHEN.” She showed him her kitchen, that was the place everyone came together and had conversations, and she loved those conversations, and her kitchen, very much. Gma talked about me, that I was prissy and would let her dress me up in pretty dresses and put bows in my hair, but then I would take them out and that I would rather be outside climbing trees. True 100%.
In a nutshell ~ My dad is looking out for me & my boys. My grandfather obviously wants me to start enjoying Christmas again. My grandma wants to inspire me to keep being a lady, and take pride in my natural beauty, presentation, home, family and all things girlie.
And that’s all folks…..
If you ever have a chance to be in touch with Joseph LoBrutto III via phone or in person, do it. I’m going back to see him again soon because there are more loved ones I didn’t have time to reach out to or hear from. Still letting this one sink in first, ha ha ha.
