Never Parted is the true story of my surprising exploration of communicating with my dearly loved deceased  brother.  When I lost my closest friend in life to suicide—my brother Duffy— I went through the darkest depths of grief, guilt, and anguish.  I also found—to my total surprise— that my brother was communicating with me from the first day after his death.

Part journal, part spiritual teaching, Never Parted is an introspective and honest account of my explorations and discoveries. The space between the living and the dead can actually be bridged!

I wish to offer a needed message of comfort and hope with the writing of this very personal account of my experience of grief and of after-death communication.

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper”

–William Butler Yeats

A Message From The Author

A beautiful clarity began for me the day my brother died.

I had to Surrender and allow mystery to take place in my life.  I Let the wave of light and clarity broadcast from the Divine and enter into my experience and it renewed me…in every way. 

Grief ripped open my heart and I had to Embrace the change happening within and around me.  I was guided by my brother in seeing a vastly greater and deeper reality of life.

I hope to share my story and help others share so that we all may keep progressing in a Divinely balanced and joyfully experienced life. 

My physical body has increased in vibration; as old hurts and pain release from my cells. I practice Release and trust. I pray for light and fierce grace.

We have a purpose on Earth. May we be inspired to Look forward to living with hope and courage to find our own truths.

Praise for Never Parted

“When Terri Segal suffered the shock and pain of her brother’s heartbreaking death, she knew she had a choice; she could ‘suffer through years of grief,’ or she could follow her own intuition that there is no death. She felt that her openness to another dimension of reality would allow her to perceive whatever might exist beyond the physical world.

Perhaps, she suggests, an unseen reality has been here all along but our cultural belief has dulled our senses and closed our minds. Could death be a ‘blessing’ that sharpens our senses and opens our minds?

Terri asks us–and herself–what might happen if we could actually accept death as a blessing and life as eternal. What kind of experiences might we have and how might they change us? This book is about Terri’s journey to discover the answers to these questions and to create a truly authentic life.”

–Better J. Kovacs, Ph.D

“As an author and researcher, I consider myself perhaps more qualified than most to appraise the validity of Duffy’s ‘teachings’ and Terri’s mediumistic and psychic ability.

My lifetime research into non-physical reality quantum physics, esoteric literature and the 15 years science research involved in writing my book: The Paranormal is Normal–the Science Validation of Reincarnation, your Immortality, and the Paranormal convince me that Terri’s experience and the messages she has received are valid. 

Both her validity as a medium/psychic, but also the validity and accuracy of the responses by Duffy give us all more pieces to the puzzle and increase our collective knowledge to add to what we already know.”
