Experience description:  

  #1- About one week after he passed, I heard his distinctive knock at the door-twice.

 #2- After the first visitation, I was home alone, the phone rang and there was silence on the other end. No dial tone, no sound of breathing, no static, no hang up. This also happened again, a few days later, after the actual service.

 #3- This one was witnessed by a couple other family members. Couple weeks after his passing, after an evening out at a regular place we frequented, we got into the car. We knew he had been there somehow because we smelled his scent, the scent of his apartment, his sweat scent, everything.
