In 1980, Kathleen Paquette had cerebral aneurysm. She was lucky enough to have gotten the best brain surgeon money can buy, Dr. Clough, who also happens to be the brain surgeon for the K.C. Chiefs.

According to the doctor, due to the location of the aneurysm, it was assumed if she lived, she would have an enormous amount of brain damage, although she was actually not expected to even live through the surgery. He said at the very least that her entire memory would be completely erased. H

No matter what kind of challenges or difficulties or painful situations you go through in your life, we all have something deep within us that we can reach down and find the inner strength to get through them.

Alana Stewart


This is a poignant story about many different facets, phases, and stages which I have either experienced myself or have been exposed to in some manner. Some might perhaps be considered controversial, while others quite frankly are uncomfortable for some people to talk about: fear, anger, child abuse, animal abuse, mental illness, denial, sadness, deception, deceit, depression, bipolar disorder, cerebral aneurysm, walk-in souls, metaphysics, paranormal, miracles, spirituality, religion, divorce, confusion, paranoia, alcoholism, and family feuds.

Although I don’t think I realized it at the time, I was abused as a child. All I knew is that I was not happy. Unfortunately, I ended up not being a very good mother myself, not because I didn’t want to be but because I did not know how to be. I never abused my kids myself though.

When I was thirty years old, tragedy struck and totally changed the path of life I was on to a new path that no one could have possibly seen coming. Personally, I think I had a near-death experience, but you’ll just have to make up your own mind on that after reading the book. But all I can say is that I feel like I have been to hell and back again, and for some reason I lived to tell about it.

Chapter 1

We All Have a Story to Tell

Deep down, we all have a story to tell, don’t you agree? Some may be a little more interesting than others, but we all have one. I know I sure do. I have wanted to shout mine from the rooftop for the last thirty-eight years. However, because part of my story defies logic and part of it defies reality, I therefore didn’t think anyone would believe me, so I have kept quiet until now. Actually, I suppose if it had not happened to me personally, I seriously doubt I would even believe it myself. However, the plain and simple truth is this: I have a walk-in soul. In case you are not aware what that is, I will be explaining in just a little bit. Before I do that, however, I think I should explain what my story is about and tell you a little about myself first.

I am a sixty-eight-year-old grandmother of five. I was born and raised in Missouri. Oh, how I miss the beautiful fall colors they have there. I have a younger brother whom I shall call Brad and an older sister whom I will be calling Judith.

The house I grew up in

I was born two months early, weighing only five pounds. I was a blond-haired, blue-eyed baby. I was shy and very quiet when I was growing up and actually preferred playing alone because my sister Judith was always telling on me and getting me in trouble for things I didn’t even do. After Judith and I grew up, she actually admitted to me that she had always been jealous of me when we were kids. She said she used to get tired of being compared to me all the time. But like I said, I was very shy and Judith wasn’t one bit shy. I was very artistic and creative, and poor Judith didn’t have an ounce of talent in her body. Mom would constantly say things to her like, Why can’t you be more like Kathie? Judith was very demanding, always wanting attention, which was very annoying at times, and like I said before, she was always trying to get me in trouble for things that I didn’t do.

Unfortunately, we grew up in a very dysfunctional family, so I vowed to never treat my children the way I was treated. Mom would never hug or kiss us or show any type of affection, to any of us, including our father. She never even tucked us in bed at night or told us any bedtime stories like most moms do.

We were not allowed to speak unless we were spoken too. We weren’t ever allowed to leave the yard and could very rarely have any friends come over and play. Personally, I was terrified of Mom. She actually reminded me of Faye Dunaway when she played in the movie Mommy Dearest. She was very intimidating and could give you looks that almost made you wish you were dead.


Two weeks after I turned eighteen, my boyfriend Jim and I were married. He was my first love, and I knew from the moment I met him he was the one. I still remember the butterflies in my stomach when he kissed me goodnight for the first time. Actually, now that I think about it, that was my one and only memorable moment out of my entire childhood.

My first husband Jim and I

After we had been married a few years, I had long blond hair and blue eyes at the time and I looked like Barbara Eden on
