Experience description:  

My first exp with LEW 3 days after he died, my husband went out to West Virginia where he had moved with his 4th wife (his 1st wife died when my husband was 4) and her 2 adult married male children (Lew and 4th wife were only married for about 5 years). Tom (my husband) and his sister went out there to get finances and records in order and for the funeral...I stayed in Minnesota as we had 2 little children and tom and sister had LOTS to get in order. One night Lew came to me...I could see him in my head...HE WAS SO UPSET...and needed to give me information to Tom ASAP.  HE told me that Tom needed to go downstairs at Lew's home ( I had only been in that house twice and never went downstairs...but I could see it all), and there was a desk that was backed up against the staircase...In/on the desk there was a "black portfolio" (his words) and tom was to find it...He was so upset and I felt I needed to call tom right away the next morning. ( no cell phones then). When I called tom I told him of what LEW needed him to do...Tom told me he would call me back....3-4 hours later...tom called me and was upset and a bit shaken...as....Tom and sister were going through all of Lew's finances with his 4th wives 2 boy, and his 4th wife. Apparently there was a 25,000 $ discrepancy...The oldest "step son" told tom and sister that LEW had GIVEN him 25,000$ to buy a collectors car...the word here is GIVEN. Tom and sister did not believe him as wonderful as Lew was, HE WAS SELF DESCRIBED "CHEAP". HE WOULD HAVE NEVER GIVEN 25,000$ to a step son...leaving his real children out of anything...WELL that step son was in for a surprise as in that black portfolio I was told by Lew to have tom find was a PROMISSORY NOTE FOR 25,000$ for "David " to have to pay back, MISSION WAS ACCOMPLISHED FOR LEW. and relationships with those step boys were ICED forever now! There was more visits and info to come for years afterwards...He would wake me to hug tom...and I was not me...I was Lew  the hug was to be a "MANLY HUG" from him as he cried (and then in turn me) that he was so sorry about how the finances of his death had gone so wrong. Tom and sister got NOTHING...it all went to his 4th wife and obviously on to her children. Lew came to me a few more day later after tom was home, about this little house he and his sister owned...the step kids were trying to get it and to FIGHT FOR IT...we did (legally) and tom and sister were able to split the $ on this tiny home I knew NOTHING about...There is so much more with hamlet over the years has come to me in my sleep to tell me he was going to be gone for while...and he did, then he would come back...Nov 8th 3 years ago he came to me and told me he was going on/to be with someone else (soul), I was to look in the future for someone (male) who has a slight "strawberry circle" on the right hand side of his face/cheek...and that would be Lew...then he hugged me, I cried and left...I wanted to go with him so badly...he said no, he was going alone and that there was so much for me to do here...I still cry remembering all those years with him, I miss him terribly still! Weeks after he died he would slam cupboards in various rooms during the night that would wake me up and knew it was him.

Was this experience difficult to express in words?  No

Did you hear the deceased or hear something associated with the deceased?          Yes

            Describe what you heard, how clearly you heard it and what was communicated:    YES, his voice, his smell and seeing his total presence...He had a leg amputated years earlier...but in all his visits he still had both legs. He wore clothes that I ALWAYS remembered him in...He would sit on my bed right next to me... ( I was "asleep" but that was the state he would come to me in,

            Did the voice or sound seem to originate externally or outside of you, inside you, or did you not hear a voice or sound, but had a sense of knowing what was communicated?  BOTH, there were times 'I HEARD HIM...other times...mostly in the beginning it was rather telepathic...but he was present...The first time (the portfolio time) I really did not "see him" it was more telepathic information. but I could see his soul, ,

            If you heard a voice or sound, was it similar or dissimilar from the voice or sound the deceased made when they were alive?           It WAS HIM...nothing similar it was him, totally Lew's voice...Every one I have "heard" it is their own voice...My friend Carol that passed away  never speaks...it is always in a telepathic "talk" as are a few others...The visits I have, have different communication styles depending on the person.

            Is there any possibility what you heard was from any other source present in the surroundings at the time of your experience?           NO!!!!...NO POSSIBLE WAY!!

            Was there any possible impairment to your hearing at the time of the experience?   NO

Did you feel a touch or experience any physical contact from the deceased?            Yes

The hugs goodbye when he would come and go I could feel him....I would feel him. I could feel the Slightly unshaven hair on his face when we would hug...I can still feel it...And the hugs I was INSTRUCTED to give y husband I could feel the feeling of the hug to transfer to tom.

 I do have a story about a Girl ANGEL (about 12 years old) that was protecting my new born daughter for 6 months...She pulled my feet half off the bed (Tom was there) as to wake me up as my daughter in the bassinet had turned over and was trying to breath but her face was smashed in the mattress and she could not turn over.

            Was the touch familiar or unfamiliar?   Familiar

            Is there any possibility what you felt was from any other source present in the surroundings at the time of your experience?  NO!!!!

Did you see the deceased?         Yes

As I wrote above that he came to me in familiar clothes that I KNEW him in, and his amputated leg was always still intact on visits. He looked always the age at which he died,

            How clearly did the deceased appear?            LIKE he was right there, clear and HIM TOTALLY SOLID

            Was the smell, scent, fragrance or odor familiar?     FAMILIAR

            Was anything communicated by the smell?   If they did not come to me to see....it was by smell to know that they were there. But Lew came WITH HIS SMELLS as I saw him at the same time.

            Is there any possibility that the smell, scent, fragrance or odor was from any other source present in the surroundings at the time of your experience?        NO!

How long did the experience last?        AS long as they were visiting

Was the beginning and end of the experience gradual or more sudden?         BOTH...sometimes it was LINGERING, but there always is /was a bit of a LEAD UP. I am woken up by a phone that rings once (with other soul visits)...it does not really ring...but it wakes me up for me to remember the visit FRESH!!  My friend Carol does that to me EVERY TIME for me to remember everything and then I call her husband to tell him the info....But other "visitors" have done the same phone thing, I KNOW it did not ring as my cell phone is right next to our bed...and it never REALLY rings, it is just to wake me up....

Could you sense the emotions or mood of the deceased?           Yes

Yes...Lew was sad, up set, so sorry, distraught, loving, caring, smiling, talky...everything, depending on the need of the visit to convey...

Following the experience, have you had any other events in your life, medications or substances which reproduced any part of the experience?         Yes 

memories of my dad who not a very nice man to us kids....and his visiting and being so sorry ,making me cry because he was, made a difference how I think and remember of him....

ASK my husband ,I COULD AND SHOULD WRITE A BOOK!!!! I hope I am contacted by you, I would love to be involved in something as that has happened and continues to happen is a HUGE part of my everyday life...I need to work with it more...but groups up here in Pelican Rapids (small small small lake town) do not exists, unless they are hiding in basements!!!   :) thank you for reading!!!
