Experience description:  

The experienced happened on the same day that my father passed away.  I was up on my rooftop with my husband and my dog trying to get some fresh air.  My dog all of the sudden starting barking at a corner on the rooftop which he doesn't do unless a stranger is in our house.  My dog conditioned to then whine out of control.  I then grabbed my dog as I knew something strange was going on and told my husband that I wanted to go inside.  I then went inside and wanted to lay down in my bedroom and not be alone.  My husband then put on the TV. I laid down with him and our dog.   As we were watching the television, the colors of the people where changing.  I then asked my husband what was going on and he could not explain.  He then switched the channels to see if all the channels were having the same problem and the distortion continued. 

We the witnessed my father's torso and face appear on my plasma television.  It was an unbelievable experience as I did not believe in spirits.  I still can't believe what happened.  My father appeared to me because prior to him dying and me telling him to please let go because I couldn't bear to see him suffer anymore, I also asked him to please give me a sign that he is fine and he did.  My father was totally incoherent before he passed. His eyes were closed and could not talked but I continued to speak in his ear as much as possible.  My father and I had a very special bond and I am just amazed at what he was able to do for me.  He wanted me to also believe that spirits do exist because he knew I was a nonbeliever.  He wanted for me to know that he was fine.  After this most incredible experience, he was able to give me two other signs a few days later as I was in my car.  Once with my sister who witnessed the same and the last was my first day back to work.
