Experience description:  

The day my Mom passed in my house, the funeral directors had already taken her body and I was sitting in a room with one large mirror on the wall. I was crying and I looked into the mirror and looked behind me in the mirror and there was a woman walking fast behind me. She had dark hair to her shoulders and white blouse with no sleeves. I did not recognize her. Also, 4 days after my Mom passed, I awoke at 4:00 am, staring at the ceiling/wall, just thinking of my Mom, when a white mist appeared and then a 3 foot lighted Angel, like Christmas lights outlining the angel, which was so bright and twinkling, then to the right of the Angel was some double lines like for my eyes to follow them and a lighted Dove appeared. I am not sure but may this lasted for a minute, then vanished. I truly feel this was my Mom either thanking me for taking care of her or it was her guardian angel telling me she was okay. I will never forget this experience. I also a few months later heard her whisper my name and my TV was on in my bedroom, with my two little dogs with me and they even jerked their head to the room next to mine where she had passed.
