Experience description:  

My family had came down for the funeral of my grandfather.  My sister and I had to sleep in his bed room. In the middle of the night I was awakened by some loud snoring, I didn't sleep too well in other people's homes. I sat up in bed and was trying to figure out where was this loud snoring coming from. I sat and noticed the bright light shinning through the window outside the bedroom window. It appeared to be shining from the moon. And I also noticed all of his pipes and other personal items sitting on the dresser.

I looked at my sisters mouth her mouth was closed. And I realized that the nearest rooms were so far from the room that we were sleeping in how could this loud snoring be in hear but there's no one in hear snoring. I also noticed the family cat coming in from the hall way into the room. I was at this time to young to figure out what I was hearing. My brothers where in the nearest room.  However, I knew how they slept and how they sounded when sleep.  But this was a man and he was snoring extremely loud. After I couldn't make any sense of it I laid back down and went back to sleep. This was my very first experience .
