Bella's ADC

Experience description:  

Early on Monday morning, my bedroom door opened...I thought it was my cat pushing open the door.  My fianc� and I both leaned over to greet him, (my cat), and a man stood there with a kind smile and his hands in his pockets.  We both sat there knowing that he did not belong there.  Speechless, he and I just stared at this male figure and started to lean backwards. 

The man was my grandfather.  I never knew him-but he looked just like my brother.  He did not say anything but my boyfriend and I clearly heard, �call you mother and tell her I love her�.  He just dissolved.  I turned to Jon and asked him if he saw it what I just saw.  He just said...call your mom!

I called my mom and she was frantic...she said that she just saw her dad and he scared the shit out of her.   She was having a full panic attack.  It was like she had just caught him peaking in on her.  He popped around a corner and she jumped out of her chair and nearly poked her eye out as she applied eye shadow.  She immediately started calming down as soon as I told her about our experience moments earlier.  I think she was on the verge of a heart attack.  I told her he came to Jon and I.  I know he came to me to calm her down�doesn�t hurt that my future husband is a cardiologist and he ran over to the house to verify that her heart rate was too dangerously high and took her to the hospital.  No heart attack to report, thank GOD!    

I have a MBA and my fianc� is a doctor.  Purely terrifying and exhilarating all the same time!  There is definitely life after death and my grandfather looks great! 

I am officially not afraid to die�my grandpa showed me so!
