Harriette J's ADC

Experience description:  

Woke up at 2 A.M. after looking at clock.  Felt a cold chill starting in toes and moving up through body and out of head.  Then saw deceased father in room seated by side of bed.  He was mostly solid, a bit transparent.  Was surprised but not afraid.  There was a wonderful sense of peace and calm.  Father was dressed in dark colored slacks and white shirt, looked healthy and appeared to be in his 60's (died at age 77).  They just sat there enjoying each other's presence for 30 to 45 seconds and then the image disappeared.  There was no talking, was calm and went back to sleep.  Then woke up again at 4 A.M. and again experienced the chill and thought "Dad is coming again". 

This time he appeared at the foot of the bed, had on an army uniform and was walking back and forth.  He looked younger, late 20's or early 30's, much like a picture that exists of him.  Again, they didn't talk, just felt love, peace, tranquility.  Got up out of bed this time and went to living room and woke up husband to tell him "I saw Dad".  Husband said "if he comes again, talk to him and come back and tell me what he said".  It was a wonderful experience.

Dad had always said he would get in touch with his children after he died (when still alive) and he has been in touch with all 3 of his children.     In another experience, the father left an object in daughter's living room on Labor Day weekend of 2006.  Was ready to go out to eat with husband and saw a C.D. laying on an end table in a blue C.D. envelope.  Neither she nor her husband, nor anyone who had been to their house recently, knew where it came from.  The name of the C.D. was "Talk to Me", recorded in 1996 by an artist who was not recording anymore in 2006.  Felt it came from Dad because he had always been concerned about her employment and she had recently had problems at work. 

     Also has frequent dreams of her father.  The ADC dreams are more vivid and clear and more real.  Once her father showed up at work (in her dream) to help with an issue.
