Experience description:  

I had a dream. In my dream I walked into my house. It was strange because my house was surrounded by trees. He was sitting on my counter with his legs pulled up and he was very swollen. I asked him was he ok. I also asked where is your car. I said Tomas where is your car and he just shook his head. I had never seen his car before but I knew it was a small black car. I woke up the next morning and thought that was odd. When I arrived to work I got on my facebook to tell him to stop messing around in my dreams. What would make him think I would want to dream about him. It was going to be a joke. Once I got on his facebook I saw RIP. It went on forever. I felt sick. I thought no way so I googled his name. He was killed in a car accident. He side swiped another car and hit the trees head on. He and the passenger were killed. The two boys in the back were thrown from that car but lived. I knew all about this and the details before I found out.  

When he comes to me in my dreams he is very upset and angry. This last dream I had at first he was happy then he left and refused to talk to me.
