Experience description:  

Father and mother lived there in the same house for 42 years.  Experience happened 11 days after father's death.  I was going through photos in my former bedroom (from 30 years ago).  Xmas card fell out of closet addressed to my mother from my father.  Mother does not remember saving card; always tossed cards.  Card was beautiful and loving and in my father's handwriting to my mother.  Father died 6 days before my mother's 75th birthday (Dec 1).  She was disappointed she could not find a birthday card from him.  Xmas card "fell" out of the closet on Dec 5.

Another experience:  My father played the numbers every day.  Always 1170 because his sister lived at 1170 77th street.  5 days after his death my mother was adding up numbers in a calculator trying to figure out how much $ she was going to have to live on each month.  It was a long string of numbers on a calculator with keys that would stick.  The total was $1170.77.  My mother jumped out of the chair and reluctantly recognized it as a sign from my father.  It was comforting, although a little confusing.  Does he want us to continue to play his numbers?  More likely, he is telling us in no uncertain terms that he is OK and with us (my interpretation)
