Experience description:  

Okay how should I start....

I was at the hospital where he passed and after my grandmother decided she needed to pull the plug we stood there watching him till he was gone. It was a very hard thing for me to watch and after he passed I felt very sad and hurt for him. I felt like I hadn't told him enough that I loved him, etc. I started to pray I was praying for God to give me some sort of sign that he is with him and that he is in God's arms. I asked God to let me feel him I wanted to feel his spirit...I didn't give up on praying these words I wanted Grandpa Chuck to hear me and wanted him to know how much I cared for him. As I kept praying I was standing at the railing at the hospital and all of a sudden about 5 minutes after he passed I felt this strong force, I knew it was him next to me and I sat down when I sat down I literally felt his arms wrapping around me, hugging me. It was the strangest yet most awesome feeling.

Then I was sitting in the room with family everyone was crying we are still at the hospital as I was experiencing all this I was praying for everyone to stay strong and for us to know he is in good hands and my Grandmother couldn't stop crying all of a sudden I felt that strong force again I felt him there in the room with us and all of a sudden everyone stopped crying and everyone was calm its like they knew he was there too. when we were leaving the hospital I still wanted a sign from God that he was in his hands. As soon as I stepped foot outside the hospital I saw a white dove and it flew in the air right in front of me but know one else saw it. I was the only one. Then when I get in the car and we start driving off there was a woman standing right next to the hospital holding a sign that said "Let every ending be a new beginning" I felt like that was my sign that I was supposed to read that sign I don't feel like it was a coincidence that sign was there. I felt  at peace after all of this. when I got home and was trying to go to sleep I felt very sad and hurt again that he was gone and I fell asleep and in my dream I felt like I saw him standing at my bed side and I woke up at peace again.
