MY MOM: Did someone just come in?
MY SISTER & ME: Why, what do you see?
MOM: The same man who was here earlier. In the suit coat. He looks like a doctor. He’s holding a piece of paper.
US: Is he talking to you?
MOM: No. He’s looking around, just looking around.
This is a real conversation between my mom, my sister and me on Day 11 of my mom’s 14 Day journey. She saw a man standing at the foot of her bed. He was holding a piece of paper – or a clip board – and just looking around our livingroom. Earlier in the day, two men had shown up. They were standing together, again, at the foot of my mom’s bed. They didn’t say anything to her, nor did she talk to them. They just stood there “inspecting” the situation. I don’t know what I believe about the afterlife or Heaven. Prior to this I had a single experience in college with a “spirit” that spooked me for many years to follow. But as I grew older, I became more skeptical. So did my mom. She wasn’t necessarily a religious person, or a believer in ghosts or spirits. So when she started having conversations with “people,” I listened. And listened carefully. I believe that what she saw was real. And I believe that someone came down to escort her to her new world, with her official passport to Heaven in hand.
That said, what are your thoughts on the afterlife? Have you – or any of your family members – had any experiences with people reaching out from the other side in their final hours? I’d like to hear your stories.
