My dad passed away ten years old. He is not physically with me anymore. Can I say:

(ex) He is spiritually with me.

Is the adverb correct? Thanks.

Yes, if you said that we would all understand. However, we tend to say "He is with me spiritually". In fact, some people even say "He is with me in spirit."

That's the only form I'd use.

The same for me.


A clear conscience is the sign of a fuzzy memory.
