Memories From The Past by Pam McCagh is a collection, a potpourri of short stories, random and not so random journeys with those that have not yet crossed over. Pam writes these stories as they are told to her, spiritually. They come to her quite unexpectedly, like the time she was talking to her son on the phone and had to put him on hold when a story quite literally popped into her head. The stories reveal people, real people, who recently passed away or who passed away a long time ago and were just waiting for something extraordinary to happen that would allow them to journey to the other side. For example, the young mother who gave up her baby, knowing that she was dying. The mother returns as a spirit when the child is older and experiences the joy of realizing that in life her difficult decision was the right one. Pam believes that "no two people travel the same journey; and that the journey is how things were on earth. A journey until death calls." She has witnessed these stories as they were revealed to her and she hopes that by sharing them with others, she will, in effect, be helping others understand a bit better the world of the living and ... the other side.

There are essentially two realms of existence: the realm of the living and .... the other side. It's a state of relativity and timelessness, a state which boggles the mind and few people can, or even attempt to comprehend. It makes one wonder, "Does time stand still?" There is certainly a sense of disconnect between the two realms, and, as author, Pam McCagh, points out, "You have to have an open mind. In all things connected with the spirit world, there are so many different things happening." This is an interesting and yet somewhat odd potpourri of short stories delving into the realm of life after death.
