Experience description:  

After my brother was murdered, my mother acquired his truck and he my brother was a race car driver and all his autos were fast and furious, well I decided to buy the truck from my mom which she wanted to much for it and it was because it was my brothers but I wanted it so I bought it.  It was a 1983 1/2 ton dual pickup truck Chevrolet.  Well after I got I found out it was too much truck for me and I had a son who was fixing to turn 16 and a friend of mine had a car he wanted and this friend wanted the truck that had belonged to my brother so I told him I would trade the truck for the car, well I told my mom about it and she came unglued, she said I told her I would never get rid of the truck and that's why she let me have the truck, but I am sure I did not tell her that and I bought the truck from her so I could do with it what I wanted to do.  Well then I was in turmoil about what to do, I prayed about it I cried and didn't know what to do.  I went to bed and the next day was when I was to give the guy an answer as to whether I would trade or not, I was laying there in bed crying silently to myself because I was not sure what I should do, it was dark in my room but plain as day I seen some sort of form, it was not a body but it was like smoke or cloud but you could see thru it and I heard my brother say in his voice its OK and at the very time I was thinking I was going to trade and from that moment on I never had another ill feeling about the issue and I feel still today I done the right thing.
