I am among the Listers who are saddened by the recent death of
Kathy Kasten. I knew her in the 1980's when she lived in
Milwaukee, on one occasion spending an evening in her home, just
the two of us talking, late into the night. (She said she was a
distant relative of Bob Kasten, U.S. Senator from Wisconsin,

I saw Kathy's name a couple of times in Jim Moseley's Saucer
Smear, and knew she had moved out West, but never reconnected
with her until recently, thanks to her e-mail address in one of
her UFO UpDates posts. Other Listers might be interested in
our brief exchange, as it includes a paranormal incident in
Kathy's past.

I hope you are well.

I see you often on Errol Bruce-Knapp's UFO UpDates, and am
reminded of when I knew you in Milwaukee. On one occasion you
told me about a call [apparently] from your just-deceased
grandmother, though unfortunately you weren't in the office to
take it.

Maybe you get Fortean Times and already saw it, but the current
issue (#289, July 2012, which I got just yesterday), pp. 18-19,
is about phone calls from the dead. Mostly citing a new book,
but adding a call in which Dennis Barden's mother called him by
his toddler-hood name. The magazine is sold in Barnes & Noble
and elsewhere.

Of course I remember you. And, I remember receiving a phone call
at work - Veteran's Administration in Jackson, MS - from someone
calling me by a name only my grandmother used for me. When I got
home from work and called family in Milwaukee, I was told that
my grandmother was dead and the time she died. Because of the
time of death, there was no way my grandmother made a phone call
in the physical. She had always accepted that humans were more
then their physical bodies.

There was a guest on Coast to Coast talking about his book which
discussed his research into the "phone calls from the dead."

The phone call from my grandmother would fall into the category
of "witnessed" communication.
