Hannah D's ADC

Experience description:  

It has been 15 years since my experience, obviously the emotions and extreme details have faded a bit, but the experience was very short and "to the point":

I awoke (very emotionally charged, sad, but comforted) from dreaming of a "white picket fence", then quickly switching to being in my grandparents' home..I looked over and saw my grandfather to the left of me, sitting in "his chair" a recliner that for years had been "his chair"(I must have been sitting because he was at eye level). The dream changed quickly and we were both standing, facing one another..he was holding me, and told me "Hannah, I love you" "I love you very much". And as quickly as the dream came, it was gone, just like that! Very quick, and to the point..lol, just realized that that was my grandfather's personality, quick and "to the point"...very interesting:) But again, the dream seemed as if it only lasted a couple of minutes...just long enough for him to make his point.

Was this experience difficult to express in words?  Yes

Because it seemed so very "real"..I could not in any way find the "words" to express the level of intense/sincere emotions and reality involved. It was so "real" that I know that it was true communication...I just have no doubt about it whatsoever. My grandfather DID communicate with me that night! And no one can ever tell me otherwise!
