Child Says He Sees Daddy, Mom Has To Pull Over In Shock

Losing a loved one in a senseless violent crime is hard enough for an adult to handle. It can be even more challenging when you're just four years old. One little boy is coping with the death of his father in his own way, and his mother is humoring. She even wishes it were true.

Brentley Rhoden talks to his father all the time. The four-year-old tells his mother Chelsea Robinson that he can see his father sometimes. He'll point and tell Robinson that his father is 'right there.'

Robinson pulls over and lets Brentley talk to his dad, even though she knows it's impossible. Brentley's father was killed last year.

Clarence 'Frankie' Rhoden was in a house with five other adults and three children. Brentley was one of those children and was sleeping on the sofa with his cousins. Someone entered the home that night and killed six adult family members.

Brentley found his father's body. He “He said, 'I picked up Daddy's hand, and it just fell,'” Robinson explains.

Now, Brentley tells his mother that he sees his father all the time. “He was so excited. He was saying 'He's right there. He's right there. He's right there. He's right there on that star.”

Brentley also likes to play on his father's grave. “He will lay on his grave, just lay on it. And sometimes he will bring out his cars and play derby,” said Robinson.

If you ask Brentley where is father is, he will tell you, "[W]orking on derby cars in heaven with Jesus.”

"I don't see what he sees," Robinson admits, but she senses Brantley's need to feel close to his deceased father. That's why when Brantley says he sees his father, she pulls over and lets the boy 'talk' to him for as long as he needs.
No suspects have been caught since the massacre, and the family is asking that anyone with information please contact the police.
