Dorothy D's ADC

Experience description:  

whilst lying in bed with my sister, I was explaining how I felt guilty for not wanting to sit with my partner (the coffin) I explained to her that the vessel which carried my partners soul did not look like him anymore, as he died tragically I was also silently asking him, was he ok, did he cross over, next thing my sister said, Dorothy look up, and directly above the bed the light which had been off for 20 minutes, started to glow, my sister is quite spiritual and told me that this was Jeff sending me a sign, and that this must have been taking a lot of his energy, I then asked him to stop and reserve his energy, the glow lasted another few seconds, but in total it was there for a few minutes, I remembering feeling overwhelmed and happy that he had found a way to let me know he was ok, I was then able to get through the funeral the next day, he also came through the next night as I had questioned the logistics of the scenario, the same room, light and this time another friend was with me and the glow was duller but there was an orange energy field around it.
