Experience description:  

 It was early in the morning and I was on hold with my doctors office and I heard my 4 yr old having a nightmare.  I ran upstairs and he was asleep and crying saying I should have kept my eyes on the road, I should have kept my eyes on the road.  I know that was my nephew speaking through him, because not long before his death I told him that my son reminds me of him. My nephews birthday fell on thanksgiving day that year and our entire family celebrated his birthday at his gravesite.  We rented a helium tank and sent messages in balloons to him.  Blue was his favorite color and we had two balloons on his grave and after we let them go we all took a family picture in front of his grave and all the sudden both balloons popped at the same time.  We knew he was there and wanted us to know.

They say it gets better with time, it hasn't with me.  I still have the shoes he died in, the broken watch he was wearing and the crused new cigarette pack he had in his pocket.  The day after his accident when he contacted me through my son, I felt relieved to know he didn't take his own life.  I know he took his eyes of the road, probably texting or changing the radio.  I don't know, but I truly feel in my heart he took his eyes off the road for one second and that was it. When my son was dreaming he was crying and saying over and over "I should have kept my eyes on the road".  My son was barely 4yrs old, he didn't know how Lil' Ronney died.  He didn't know he was in a car accident. He was talking in first person. I took a leave of absence from work because I was an emotional basket case, I was upstairs in bed crying and telling him I was sorry and how much I missed him and all the sudden my bed side lamp went off and then the other lamp on the other side of the room came on.  I know that was his way of telling me he was there.  My mom was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor.  He just contacted her and his sister by calling out my mothers name.  They both heard it loud and clear.
