Experience description:  

These are two visual encounters. 

7/22/08-Woke up around dawn, it was semi-dark in the room. Saw Jerry in bed next to mine.  Was lying on his stomach as if he was sleeping. 

I reached out my hand to put my hand on Jerry's head.  When my hand got to where Jerry's head was, I felt nothing.  Then I waved my hand back and forth where his head was and still felt nothing. 

Then Jerry suddenly disappeared with my hand still stretched out toward him.  It seemed very strange to by lying there with my hand stretched out toward nothing. 

9/10/08-Woke up, it was just starting to get light outside. I looked at a small crack in the curtain and saw Jerry's head being illuminated by the small amount of light coming through the crack in curtain.  A couple seconds later, the image disappeared.
