Theresa Caputo is helping one of PEOPLE’s own reconnect with his past.

The Long Island Medium gave Jess Cagle, Editor-in-Chief of PEOPLE and Editorial Director, Time Inc. Style & Entertainment Group, a live reading during the latest Jess Cagle Interview.

Starting the reading, Caputo – whose new book, Good Grief: Heal Your Soul, Honor Your Loved Ones, and Learn to Live Again, is out now – tells Cagle, “What happens is when I explain to you how I connect with spirits, spirits are just gonna start. I have no control over who comes through, what they say and what they don’t say.”

Caputo says that four souls stepped forward, including a man Cagle identifies as his late father.

“He showed three pages and standing at a podium – that’s my symbol for someone read something or wrote something at a eulogy or spoke at their wake and/or funeral,” explains Caputo. “Then what he did was, he took it, placed it in a folder and then put it in a desk.”

She adds, “So I don’t know if you thought about writing something or you did write something. If you did write something, you have it safe.”

Cagle reveals that he penned a book about his dad that was ultimately never published. “Only I know about it, and he knows about it. And my mom knows about it and she’s not here to tell you that,” Cagle says.

As the reading continues, Caputo, 49, tells Cagle, “If you take nothing else from this experience today, I want you to take with you knowing how proud your dad is of you.”
