Experience description:  

Before my alarm went off at 6:15, Sam came and stood over me. Smiling and touching my face, he said "I AM what you wanted me to be". I started crying and tried to hold on to his legs. Very shortly thereafter my alarm went off. I went to work knowing in my heart he had died but felt comforted that he knew I believed in him. Received a call at 9am to tell me Sam had died early that morning sometime after 5am.I lost the love of my life but will never forget how he told me goodbye.
