Experience description:  

At Lorraine's funeral mass, the priest said something which I do not remember.  Then I saw that the priest got a very white aura, brilliant, and after this I saw Lorraine. I'm certain that it was her because she was always of a very curious nature and she was behind the priest and bend left and then right and disapeared. I felt a wonderful peace and looked around, seeing all those people crying, but I wasn't sad at all. I saw her husband talking in the front and he had something like a tube from the head up to the sky, it was of gray colour and seemed open. 

At first I didn't realize what I came to see, however the sensation of well-being stayed with me. I must say that I think at her with affection quite often, and thank her for having given me this beautiful experience. Oddly enough I feel closer to her now, than during her lifetime and I will never forget this experience.
