Theresa Caputo hit the road for a special edition of "Long Island Medium: Theresa on the Road." The idea was for her to take her gift across the country, responding to viewer email requests she'd received. Along the way, she touched lives and brought people peace and closure.
One particularly memorable story was when she met Ben. The young boy had lost his father, Steven, in a drowning accident. According to a family friend, Ben had become morose, never recovering from the loss of his father.
Theresa met with him, and quickly found a tangible connection Ben could hold on to. "Did your dad call you buddy?" she asked Ben. As she did, he put his hand over his mouth in shock. Then, she gave him the message.
"Your dad is very proud of you," Theresa told the boy. "He says, ‘I know how much you love me.'"
Ben said the whole experience felt like a dream.
"Long Island Medium" continues its regular season on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on TLC.
