Dee E's ADC 1946

Experience description:  

Too many things to say before and after the death of my brother.

Premonitory dreams prior to the sickness

In fact I saw myself sick, receiving heavy treatments, a nurse telling me I was going to die and all that 1 year prior to my brother's sickness

When I saw my brother sick at the hospital, in bed, receiving chemotherapy, I recalled that dream I don't know why, then I understood that it was him who was going to die. /His words before his death are the following

He saw himself at his burial, say goodbye to his friends, then a nurse telling him she could not do anything else for him, it's him who told me that a few weeks later before he died. 

His wife, who 2 weeks after his death received by mail the day before Whit Monday a heart shaped medal engraved with the date of their marriage which took place at Gustave Institute on March 25 2011. Nobody knew about the existence of this medal. 

We talk a lot  everyday me and my brother about the future of the family. I have to support my parents, his wife, his daughter and most of all I should not worry because he feels ok. 

The word love keeps appearing during our discussions.

And then as evidence for us that the bone marrow transplant done 3 days before his death ( with my stem cells) was going to help us so that we can be very close to each other: this is repeated continuously for reasons I don't really understand.

These events regard my brother but I've had some other events some years earlier just before my granddad's death
