Experience description:  

The day John passed away I spoke with the folks from the cremation society- and gave them some clothing of john's for the cremation. A pair of jeans, a shirt that he called his wedding shirt, and 3 cherry lifesavers for his pocket- because we never left home without them. Anyway they asked if I'd like to know when the cremation would take place. I said no- just let me know when it is done. John passed away early Thursday morning. I had gotten phone calls a couple of night at about 4 in the morning with no-one there.  The lights in the bedroom would blink on and off a few times every evening. I use a c-pap machine at night for sleep apnea.

A week after John passed, I was having trouble with my mask it was uncomfortable and I sat up, took the mask off my face, leaned over the side of the bed to turn off the machine. When I turned to my right to lay back down- there was John surrounded by a green and golden glow. The odd thing is he was sitting cross- legged on his side of the bed near the foot of the bed, which is something he could not do because of his weight, smiling, with his arms extended as if to say well look at me now! He looked younger than when I first met him and healthy and happy. I just smiled at him and then laid down to sleep.

The next day the representative of the cremation society called me to let me know that he had been cremated the night before-I guess he came to let me know that all was well. He was barefooted and wearing the clothing i had picked out.  John's cousin in Florida, and a  friend in Ohio both awoke at the exact time of death. A good friend from California near Los Angeles was on his way from his car to his front door at the end of his evening shift when he felt a cool wind and heard  the words "Good-by George". George ran into his home in a panic, (this had happened to him once before) thinking that something had happened to his wife- but found that John had just passed.  

A few times after that when I was up late at night on the PC, it would just shut down as if to let me know that I should go to rest now. That year at Christmas time I took my son and his wife- who now live with me to Las Vegas to celebrate my sons' birthday. We were staying at the Paris hotel and the first night the kids went up to the room and I sat down at a slot machine to play and listen to the band for the evening I had been playing about 45 minutes when the band played a song "Have I told you lately that I love you?"- at the same time three 7's came up on my machine and I won 300 dollars. The next night after returning from a show late in the evening- the kids who don't really gamble went up to the room again- I had just used up the twenty dollars I had allotted for the evening and found a dollar in my pocket- so I put it in- The band played the same song again and again three 7's, with another 300 dollar win. In the afternoon or evening of almost every day we would ask each other if we had said I love you today? So this occurrence was especially comforting to me.  When I look back over the past two years, there have been so many instances of communications, that I sort of ended up taking them for granted.
