Experience description:  

I was sleeping in a hotel in the town where Kyle had just died...  (approximately 12 hrs after his death, 

I was sound asleep and I felt a presence,, as if a man was about to climb into bed with me... I felt fear... I yelled out my husbands name..

it happened very quickly..

I opened my eyes and looked at the next bed and my husband was not moving and was in bed...

I could see nothing.

there seemed to be a mental communication...I could see nothing..

I soon realized that it was Kyle's presence and  I apologized for not recognizing him.. and told him (MENTALLY)  I had been frightened,, he said he was sorry that I did not recognize him and then seemed to move farther and farther away . there seemed to be someone with him but I did not detect a presence...but sensed that this other presence was hurrying him to leave..

Kyle told me "said", ''I HAVE TO GO NOW MOM'   and I felt an EXTREME  sense of SORROW,,,,, COMING FROM KYLE  ... it was not coming from me...  that seemed very clear. THEN,  there was a Very Bright Light,, a Yellow / Green Flash  of the most Vivid Nature.. unlike anything I had ever seen or felt before. Similar , but not the same, as the bright green/yellow flash sometimes seen at sunset at the horizon...BUT, 10 TIMES MORE VIVID.. 

then there was nothing,,, the room felt normal... I then  called to  my husband to come to me and told him what had happened..
