In Mission 93 we hear Gary Galka’s powerful story of communication with the spirit of his daughter, Melissa who passed tragically in 2004. Gary used his technical background to develop electronic tools that have been seen on just about every ghost investigation show on television. Using those same tools, Gary has captured compelling audio evidence from Melissa. You’ll hear some of those recordings in tonight’s show and learn about how this communication has helped the Galkas in their grieving. They know death is not the end. Recently, the Galka family appeared on an episode of Ghost Adventures on the Travel Channel. You’ll also hear recordings Gary captured during that investigation that didn’t make it in the show. Through the sale of his equipment, Gary supports several charities including: Compassionate Friends, Mary’s Place, and The Cove.
