    There are a few that I would bring back. But my first choice would be my mother who died when I was two. This way I could get to know her a bit better.

    This is a difficult question, but for me I would bring back two of my favorite musicians, John Lennon or Freddie Mercury.  I can't pick one so they'll have to shoot it out on their own.

    I guess I would say Jesus! That would probably solve a lot of problems and answer a lot of questions!

    I think on a personal level, it would be my mom. She died when I was 15 and I would love for her to know my children and my husband.  I miss her everyday and wonder what my life would be like if she had lived.

    Why?  Because I know only the person I am today having dealt with her death--so selfishly I would like to know I would have been had she stayed with me.  And it would be awful nice to have a mom's shoulder to lean on.

    It will be my parent.

    I had such wonderful times under their care and missing them when they had passed away. Even in my dreams, I see them becoming alive.

    I would love to bring back my grandfather(my fathers father). He died when I was so young and there are very little things that I remember about him. My dad tells me stories about him all the time. I can listen for hours about when my dad was younger and his life with his father.

    It would be the Grandmother who reared me.

    While she was living, I failed to ask her so much of her old world ways and wisdom.  I have bits and pieces, but it is an incomplete collection.

    I regret this in life............I  failed to learn all that she could have taught me.

    I could say my grandmother (my mother's mom) but then again she have had a full and happy life so I'll bring back a very close friend who died when he was 15.

    So many words were left unsaid and many deeds left undone.He was not able to enjoy his youth and was not able to reach his full potential.

    One person comes to mind automatically because I have had dreams about having that person back. It's not anyone famous or important to the world, but they meant the world to me. Just to be able to hug them once more, tell them I love them...I think about it all the time.

    my stepdad. My mom would be a different person today if he were still here on this earth...the emptiness his death left behind devasted her and nothing would make me happier than for her to have her love back. Her true happiness died the day he did.

    Mother Theresa without a doubt.  She was an amazing person when she lived and her extraordinary works still live on.

    I would like to see if she would tweet to her followers if she did and if she'd start up a blog!  It would also be interesting to see the number of followers on her twitter account - so yes, I'd definitely bring back Mother Theresa.

    The only people I'd want to bring back from the past are people I loved and lost - and since I'm already adjusted to having lost them, I'd rather not have to go through that again (if this bringing-them-back thing would be temporary).  If it would be permanent, then I'd like to bring back everyone I loved and lost when they died.

    When it comes to people I didn't know and/or love, I figure whoever is in the past may as well remain there; and if any of the non-loved ones in my present become "in the past to me" - oh well, "whatever".  Besides, I'm just not a big of resurrecting the past.

    Only one? I'd have to pick my mother-in-law. She never got to see her two newest granddaughters, and I know she would've been thrilled with them!
