Today's text question of the day was because of a response to Friday's #TQOTD.  We asked what you wanted for Christmas and a listener texted in that she wanted to talk to a family member again.  That text gave us the idea for today's Text Question of the Day:

TEXT QUESTION OF THE DAY:
You get one hour to talk to anybody you want who has passed away. Who are you going to talk to and what are you going to say?

  • Long time listener, first-time texter. I would talk to my grandma, I would tell her I miss her and then enjoy small talk and ask her for advice
  • I would pick someone from history to find out what really happened. Maybe John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, or even further back like Abraham or Moses. Could you imagine getting the real lowdown? Did we get it right or are we way off?
  • T?OTD.. I would love to talk to my dad in law. He was such a wonderful man and grandpa. He never had the chance to meet 3 of his grandchildren and I would love to tell him how wonderful they are and how much we miss him. I'm not crying... you're crying. Happy Monday guys ❤
  • The person I would choose would be my father in law who passed away in June. My husband and him were not on good terms when this happens so I would make sure they were okay. We miss him so much
  • Maya Angelou she was an amazingly inspirational woman. I have read all of her books and many of her messages are important to live by. She was a huge believer in your attitude has a huge impact on your happiness and the fact that you should always love yourself. She had strong messages about the power of women and success as well. I also love her message about how people will forget what you said and what you did but will never forget how you made them feel. She inspires me so much still and I would love to meet her and just have a little chat.
  • I would choose to hold my daughter and tell her all about the years she's missed and her brother here on earth who is my rainbow baby. My daughter passed away at 8 months old after living her life in the nicu at Helen Devos children's hospital.
  • I would like to be able to go back to when my daughter was seven before she had a stroke and just tell her how much I love her in our lives may be Changing soon unexpectedly but I love you and I will always care for you and I will always be there for you
  • TQOTD...My Aunt, I was living in Florida when she passed away so I would want to say goodbye and have one last conversation with her while she was still able to talk and laugh and smile.
  • My cousin David. He was recently murdered over a hate crime (in Arizona) and they have no leads as to who took his life and his friend's life. He would be able to shed light on the people who did this heinous act.
  • If I could talk to anyone I would talk to Tesla, and ask him if there’s any research he was never able to release before his death
  • One hour to talk to someone. I would talk to my Aunt who passed away several years ago of cancer.
  • #TQOTD I'd like to talk to my uncle. He completed suicide 3yrs ago and we had a falling out a few years prior to that. He reached out to me a few months before his death, I was 3 months pregnant and couldn't deal so I didn't respond not realizing it was a cry for help. Anyway, I would tell him I'm sorry for not being there, I will always love him, I miss him and I think of him often.
  • What about someone who isn't alive yet? I would talk to Squire Sebastian Senator and ask him how he feels about his first name...
  • I would talk to my aunt Ellen because she passed away so unexpectedly and I would ask her about all her recipes (peanut butter pie😍) and tell her I love her and finally say goodbye
  • Paul Walker! Am I only allowed to talk to him?? 😍
  • Easy question. I'd love to speak my thoughts to my wife who died. She was the best n she passed unaware I was there. I want to tell her I've turned away from God. Thousands of people prayed to the empty-headed PHONY, but she went anyway. I never believed in God. What's sad for me is those damned promises that never exist. I wanted revenge on the surgeon, but it wouldn't bring her back. I'm in love again n my life is good. But Sharron made me see the fraud. No good yo do squat!!!
  • I would want to talk to John Bennet to find out what happened to her and put whoever hurt her in prison.
  • I would pick my son. He would have too much to say to me, he was a talker. But I would tell him that I love him and how much his daughter loves and misses him.
  • I would talk to my Grandpa. I would tell him that I have a coat and I'm warm.---thats because right before he died he wanted to make sure I had a coat to stay warm.
  • I would want to talk to my grandpa. I didn't get to say goodbye. Also just talk to him about his great-grandchildren he's never meet.
  • Not to be dark but If I had an hour, I would talk to one of the mass shootings shooters just to see what is going on in their head and world... to figure out how to prevent them.
  • If I had the chance to talk to anyone Who has passed I would for sure pick my mom. This week will be 3 years since she lost her battle to ovarian cancer. She was my absolute best friend we had a relationship that was unexplainable. I miss her each and every day. I would just want to talk to her about my future & life's happenings these past 3 years.
  • I would love to talk with Bob Ross. He is my favorite person ever. Of all time. I would definitely ask for a painting lesson
  • TQOTD: I would want to sit down and talk to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I want to know his thoughts about what is going on in this country. He worked so hard (and was killed because of) to fight for civil rights and to better the relationship between people of different races. I imagine he would be disappointed to see how we are treating each other.
  • #questionofaday, without a doubt my 1 hour would be spent talking to my brother Tim we lost them five years ago and the last time that I saw him we are in a hurry to leave and I didn't get to say goodbye. he died the next morning in a construction accident
  • Hey guys, this question was really easy for me actually. I have two people I'd want to talk to actually, one family member and one celebrity. I'd love to talk to my papa again, that man was my hero and one of my best friends and I'd do anything to talk to him one more time. The celebrity I'd want to talk to is Paul Walker, he is the reason that I got into cars and I would love to sit down and have a conversation about cars with him. RIP to both of those awesome men
  • I would talk to my husband. I just want to hear him laugh again but it would be way too hard to say goodbye again. So I would talk to Jesus and ask why Dave had to go to heaven so early and what I am supposed to do ... what is my destiny
  • Text question of the day, my hour was someone would be my grandfather who passed away 28 and 1/2 years ago and then I would so profusely when we had to depart. I was only 10 when he passed. We saw him every day and he was killed in a car accident so we never really got to say goodbye! There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about him.
  • If I could talk to anyone who past away for an hour, I would want to talk to my cousin Scott who had past away from cystic fibrosis when he was eight, now he would be 13❤️
  • My dad died when I was 16, I'm almost 41 and I would give anything for him to see his grandkids today.
  • My grandma just passed away this last Wednesday and I would talk to her and just talk about her values and certain things in her life that I could learn from.
  • Especially how she could tell people what to do with raising her voice or how they would do it so they wouldn't disappoint her
  • My Mom. She died 5 years ago very unexpectedly when I was 25 years old. I never got a chance to talk to her, tell her how much I love and will miss her. Also, tell her what caused her to die because she was so scared right before she died because she didn't know what was happening to her. Also, my son was 6 then and was her entire world. I would want her to be able to hear about how much he has grown since she died
  • My grandma whom I'm named after. She died before I was born. I think it would be really nice to meet her
  • TQOTD please keep me anon. I would want to talk to my stepdad who took his life 7 years ago.

  • Don't say my name on this one...My Mom! I miss you so much. You leaving us at age 50 was way to early. Thanks Connie and Fish, this one is way too deep. My eyes are watering as I'm trying to put make up on. I'd say I'm sorry for telling you to stay married instead of divorcing my stepfather. after the 10 years and you passed, He was gone like the wind just like you were. The grave you two picked out together I'm the one who's going to be with you!
