Experience description:  

My husband told me that my sister, her name is Julie was missing and we had to drive over to my Mom's house.  I didn't think anything worse than Julie was missing and the police must be looking for her.

As we drove over to my Mom's, my husband was driving and I was sitting in the front passenger seat, I suddenly felt this instantaneous feeling that my sister Julie was sitting directly behind me in the back seat of the car. 

I then looked at my husband and he continued to not say a word and was still driving.  I did not turn around for some reason, but I thought "no that means that Julie has died."  And then I refused to believe it. 

A few minutes later we arrived at my Mom's house.  We went in the house and my Mom was leaning over the kitchen sink staring out the kitchen window. My Mom's friend, his name is Ed was there too. 

I said to Ed, " are they looking for Julie?"  He looked at me with a shocked look, then walked over and put his arms around me and said: " Julie died at 3:00 am this morning."
