Experience description:  

My experience' are probably not even worth mentioning for those who have experienced incredible after death contact but it was to me. 

My mother died on the ides of March 1988.  She was a very lonely person with varying degrees of visitation from three children.  Her main form of entertainment was her television - she watched it day and night.  My sister stayed at her house for a while before she passed.  My sister did not work - was and is an alcoholic and would sell anything she could to get a drink.  While driving to the funeral home a few days after her death with my brother and sister I heard my mother say to me "make sure you get my television."  Even though I had one it was older and not in good shape but no one had talked about what to do with the little she possessed - her television being I suppose her best friend.  When I heard that I knew immediately what she meant.  She knew my sister would sell it for booze or drugs and I would use it not only to watch but to think of her every time I looked at it.  I expected some resistance from my sister but at that time I said "I want mother' TV."  The words were as if she was in the car with me. 

My father passed several years before her of a stroke - they were never married but were together on and off for 35 years.  A few months after he passed I found myself in a compromising position in a motel room with a woman who was not my wife.  As I lay on the bed I saw my fathers face float across the room - he looked at me with a concerned look on his face.  I thought I was imagining things but it seemed so real at the time I couldn't shake it.  After we left the motel room we found out she had been followed by a PI hired by her husband and they were outside the room taking photos as we entered and then left.  It was not until later I realized my father was trying to warn me of the impending problem - I later lost my job as a police officer over the situation but my father was there to warn me.  At least I believe that.
