Fred R's ADC

Experience description:  

It was just a moment in time. The room was dark and the family sleeping. I woke up and just sat on the edge of the bed looking in the direction of a window when there was an explosion of bright light in the corner adjacent to the window. My Mother appeared with outstretched arms with her face in the middle (nothing else) and she spoke the following words ... "Bobby, I am glad you came to see me" ... I jump up and went in her direction and the light and my Mother went off like a light bulb. It is as vivid today as then!
