Experience description:  

My first true love committed suicide on 8/8/12.  I was devastated and confused.  Lots of sadness and loss for my friend/love.  I begged to whoever (see religious views), to see him one more time.  I was having a great dream, I had just gotten selected as a college cheerleader!  I  was walking briskly in an airport with a small piece.of.luggage. My phone rang.  It was in the small front pocket of the luggage I currently own.  It was an older silver cell phone a flip phone.  I answered and it was Josh...my first and only true love who I had been mourning for and begging to see one last time...whom I deeply, regretted not telling my true feelings to in our last conversation, only weeks before his suicide. I said something like "How are you calling me? Aren't you gone?  Are you supposed to be doing this?"  He assured me that he was still around/alive, he said he had gained special permission to speak with me on the phone, but that I would not be allowed to see him at this time.  A clip board appeared in my hands.  It had a paper that looked like an official approval form of some kind.  It had a box checked that said "approved" it was an "Official Exception Form".  He was showing me that he had obtained an exception from Gordon B. Hinkley, the recently departed prophet of the Mormon church (at the time of my dream I did not know Hinkley was deceased).  The form allowed Josh permission to specifically contact me.  He explained that he was not gone, and he is watching over me, that he is so proud of me.  I looked below the approved box and saw lines and words where he had typed in big Garamond style capital letter font "I LOVE YOU! I LOVE YOU! I LOVE YOU!" This December I visited his family in the home where he died.  I got a terrible headache, the worst of my life there.  I was unable to emotionally rest those 4 months till I came to visit his mother.  There was a compulsive nature to my visit.  I felt I could not rest till I saw and mourned with her.  I physically did not sleep well following his death, till I visited his mother 4 months later.  I was also nauseated and was worried I would lose my lunch.  While there visiting we went into his old bedroom, and I looked up and a framed picture of Gordon B. Hinkley was on his wall.  His mother told me that he was Josh's favorite Mormon prophet and a family friend had brought the framed item to them.  I am convinced this contact/dream was real communication from him.  I have no physical proof.  My love for him continues beyond this life... I am married to a good, loving man, so I wish my name to be kept confidential.  My love for Josh is without end.  It is sustained because of this experience/contact.  Josh was a convincing man, and I believe he would have moved mountains for me.  He would have moved. "Heaven and Earth" as they say.  I no longer fear death, since I know he is alive and safe somewhere that I will see him again following my own death.  So this dream is meaningful to me.  It has caused great difficulty in my marriage (though I have not told my husband of my experience, I know he felt a shift in our relationship) and confusion for me religiously, as I was a stout atheist...now I hesitate to label myself because of my hope in reuniting with my first and one true love someday. I don't know if my story counts since, it isn't about my death, but I feel I need to share it in the name of your research.  I hope to have some of my burning questions answered someday...thanks.
