Experience description:  

My brother had died suddenly the 18 of may 2001, and my father the year previous on May 1, 2001. 

I was asleep in my bed when i was awaken by my a man sitting on the side of my bed who felt familiar to me and i was not afraid. the man said your brother john is here and with that john appeared. i jumped out of bed and looked at him his hair was longer and he had grown an mustache. i immediately asked if he wanted me to cut his hair he said no no no. i asked him how is dad and he said great and then i asked about grandmother and he said she was great. I then asked John what is it like and he said Andrea it is more beautiful than anything on earth. we walked out of the bedroom while i called for my husband bobby to come and see john.  i asked john if anyone else could see him and he said no. my reply was great now they'll think i am really nuts.

we walked into another room looking for my husband when another man came into the room, again another familiar feeling.  my brother said  he is here to help you, i turned and looked at the man  and when i turned back john was gone. i believe my brother brought me a guide spirit.
