lot of things happened with my dads passing.  I live 1000 miles away and he died on 8/31/02 at 9 pm and mom called me at 11 pm at 3 a.m. I am talking to her again on the phone and packing as I do this at the same time I hear a pop on the phone everyone with her at her house saw a huge flash of light shoot thru the dining room (my father died at the dining room table after dinner)  

the evening on the day of dads funeral mom and I were in the kitchen talking - not really about anything - it was midnight and suddenly she dropped her head down on her chest and said "Emma I'm having a meal with Charles - and then wakes back up ,  my moms best friend is Emma and her husband was Charles who died 20 years before. 

the whole week I am at my parents home lights are flickering and flashes of light shoot thru the dining room when we gathered a couple times. 

on the way back to NY from KY from the funeral we stopped over at a hotel and we turned off the light by the bed and minutes later the light and radio came on when I went to turn them off they were in the off position 

phone would ring and no one there, even upon coming home to my house in NY where he had never been 

one night I was asleep and something woke me and I looked up and at the door saw a glowing floating mass of light that came to my bedside - I screamed and ran out of the room and thru on the hall light and nothing was there. 

I have had my name called while asleep so loudly that it would waken me and it was my fathers voice 

the day before my mom passed I smelled cigarette smoke very plainly 

when my mother passed the following morning I was getting packed and smelled a sudden smell of cigarette smoke - no one in my home was smoking - my husband smelled it too == my dad always smoked.

day of the funeral I went to see my dad at the funeral home alone and talk to him - I was devastated by his death and told him I had to know he was still alive and he was ok because I could not handle this without knowing and would he let me know somehow.  I believe he did
