Debra M's ADC

Experience description:  

This experience was an aid to my healing, although I found myself wanting more and at times begging GOD to give me more signs.  I got them!  Have heard Rachel's voice telling me to Stay Strong, Get the family Ready, that she would be coming to get us all soon???  Seen her in dreams where there was always a spiritual or Life message attached.  Feel her presence by the tingly, warm, loving presence of her.  Her friends have also dreamt vividly of Rachel.  I also had a dream where I was dancing with Tony (the 15 year old boy who was also killed in the accident).  She is often accompanied by my father.  A few months after her passing, three female friends experienced the same dream in which Rachel appeared to them at a younger age (10 to 12).  One of those lady friends had just lost her adult son in a tragic accident, and knew that she had come as a messenger to let her know that her son was well.  She did not know my child in life, but recognized her from photos, and told me that she was at great peace after the vision.  My mother has seen Rachel materialize in her room on 3 occasions.  My blind nephew felt her presence many times, and saw her dancing.  She would leave him pennies in his dreams.  He had not saw her physically in over 12 years since he lost his sight, yet he could describe in detail the way she parted her hair, how she wore her makeup and the wedding dress she was laid to rest in.  Again, I could fill a book with all the amazing, wonderful, awesome experiences.  I would get a cramp if I named them all.  I am not making any of this up.  I even have the names of at least 20 friends and family members who could also relate their stories.
