Gloria O's ADC
knew that he was going to die. We had an agreement that he would contact me,
somehow, after he was gone. Shortly, after he died, I was told to get a pen and
paper and that he would contact me. I did as I was told, and I held the pen in
my hand. All of a sudden, without any movement on my part, the pen began to have
power to write. I held the pen and it moved on its own, as I say, very
powerfully. In my husband's own handwriting, it said, "This is Mack". It wrote
that he was very happy and that he was with Jesus. He told me not to worry about
anything, that I would be taken care of. I have had contact with him numerous
times in this same manner. I know that it is him contacting me because, believe
me, the pen writes without any movement by me.
