Experience description:  

DAD:  The night I learned of his passing, on July 14,2011 I cried so hard in my bedroom.  My bedroom door slammed shut.  There was no storm or wind that could have caused this. Since that time to the present, I had dreams of him. Trying to explain to him (as I did when he was alive) how to use my remote.  Another time was I was sitting in the very back of a van or a jeep.  No one would sit with me.  But he climbed in and sat beside me.  Every now and then I would see a license plate on a car with his initials "FMF."  When I could not find my attorney ID, I remember thinking "Dad please help me," as I retraced my steps. When I gave up, as I crossed the street back to the Courthouse, I looked down and saw it on the crosswalk in the middle of the street. 

My ex mother in law died the following January. Near the time she passed, I heard two songs with her name, "Jean."  I was having lunch before going back to Court. The cafe likes to play oldies.  The song was the one sung by Rod McKuen in 1969. Shortly around that time, the song "Cheer Up Sleepy Jean" by Davy Jones played on the radio. I dream of her every now and then.
