    I would bring my Grandpa Tony back. He died when I was a teenager and due to my age I never really got to tell him how much I loved and appreciated him. I would also want him to meet my son (his only Great Grandchild). I would also want my Mother (and the rest of my family) to spend the day with him, because they all loved him (and miss him) so much.

    My grandma Frances..because i love her..miss her and she always showed me such love and affection..she was what a good grandma should be like..makes you feel like you are so special, and listens..cooks..cooks lol..and makes the best food. I love her and wish she were also able to meet my son and love him up like she did me.

    My ex-girlfriend's grandmother. She treated me more like family than my real family did.

    My grandma Marilyn. She was a wild child and vastly opinionated. To be able to sit and talk to her one last time before she died (suddenly) would be beyond priceless.

    I'd be inclined to bring back someone from history. Perhaps Thomas Jefferson for all his inventions and view of the world.

    My first thought was to say my mom. But then as I think about it, I wouldn't bring anyone back. It was too hard to say goodbye the first time. I'm still not over it. I don't think I could go through it a second time.

    My immediate reaction was well... JAMES DEAN of course! Then the next thought immediately following that was of my sister. She died when she was 16 and I was 19. I hadn't seen or spoken to her in the preceeding four years due to a nasty divorce situation that really didn't involve her or me. Anyway, I regret those lost four years and that what brought me to her again was her tragic death and funeral. I would want her to know that I love her very much and thought about her all the time while we were apart. I would answer any question she would ask me no matter how painful it might be. Most of all I would tell her that she is loved and will always be in the heart of her only sister. It doesn't matter that we didn't know the other existed for most of our lives. Nor does it matter that we had far too little time together. The bond of sisters, once forged can never be broken.

    Paul, the apostle. I have a few questions. (I'd have said Jesus, but he isn't dead.)

    My friend Tracy so all of you could meet her, you would love her.
    Oh the tears and lumps in the throat are already starting.
    She was the dearest, most, best everything in my whole life and no matter what anyone sez, time has not made it easier.
    Gawd...I miss her.

    Wow, SassyFemme. You said it. I was all set to say my Grandpa Jones - but it took me six months to CRY after he died (and I sat with him nonstop for his last 2 weeks), I was so devastated. I don't think he'd want me to go through that again, not even for one more blissful, loving day. He loves me too much. Besides, he knows I'm okay, and that's what I'd really want him to know anyway.

    I had a grandmother who suicided before I was born. My mother was 8. It created such pain and chaos for so many people. I would love to have her back long enough to understand...to know what kind of person she was, and what kind of pain could drive the mother of four small children to leave that type of wound in her babies. I would love to know her as a person and not a story...to be able to have empathy and not just anger for her legacy. Perhaps if I knew her, I could see, as I can with my other grandmother, "Oh, I got that humor, that interest, that preference for blondes from my grandmother..."

    My mother.
    To get answers to my parentage.
    To forgive her.

    Jim. Just to hug him; I never got to say goodbye.

    My father, Tony. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of him. His sad eyes, wonderful smile and gentleness. There is a part of me that wants to tell him about what has gone on in my life in the 15 years that he has been gone. I would tell him how the message of his illness and death influenced my life and how it urged me forward into a different path. My business is named after him and I use the message of his life to keep me focused on my business decisions. I wish he could have known my grandson...maybe he does anyway? More then anything, I would be happy to just be able to look in his eyes, give him a hug and tell him that I will love him forever.

    Umm…Einstein. What? I’m a science nerd. I want to sit in a McDonalds with this guy and talk. I want to hear him rant about the flaws of string theory.

    It would hurt way too much to bring back someone I loved, just for a day. So it would have to be someone I never loved, like... let's see heeerrre...Thomas Jefferson (can you believe what's happening to the three brances of government?! Mr. Jefferson, what's happening to the separation between church and state? Mr. Jefferson, breathe! Here, have some water...calm down...See how fun this would be?) Ok, maybe not Jefferson. Alright then. Jesus. I got a whole slew of questions for that one.

    I would bring back my life partner Jo who passed away 4 yrs ago of cancer....and tell her everything I didnt have time to..when she was still here

    I would bring my papa back. He was the greatest man and the kindest. I was tangled up in my own life to even give him a second glance or any of my time. So I would love to be able to spend one day with him. I would also like him to be able to meet his grandson and my new love. He would love them both, just as much as I do.

    Jesus, to get the story straight and if not, to ask for a better explanation than the one he left.

    My dad - he died about 4 1/2 years ago, no even reaching his 60's, and I don't think I was the best son ever . . . I've long conversations with him since he's died, but it would be nice to have one last face to face conversatioon where we could hash everything out.

    Blessings & Peace,
    Hugo

    My paternal grandfather (who died before I was born, and left my father and grandmother many years before that) - to find out what made him marry another woman after having a child eith my grandmother, given the gaping holes he left for my father (and eventually for me) in terms of learning to be a good life partner to another human being.

    Alexander the Great - just to find out what inspired him/drove him, to conquer the known world of his time

    Purely selfish - my nan. I would spoil her rotten for that 1 day and apologise for being a brat. I would make sure she knows that I love her and always have, deeply, and my mother and aunty share in this emotion.

    I would say all the things I should have said and beg her to stay longer.
