Experience description:  

My grandmother was rushed to the hospital in the middle of the night.  My cousin from out of town had been staying with her and she woke him saying she wasn't feeling right.  By the time we got to the hospital she had been pronounced.  It was quite a shock because it was so sudden.

The next day I went to class at the University and cried on the drive in, but I wasn't too distraught because I believed in life eternal and was thankful she had not suffered. 

When I got home I was standing in my bedroom when I felt/saw a white flash shoot across the room from my upper right to left.  I knew immediately it was her sending me a message. 

Then I laid down to take a nap and was in that state between sleep and awake when I had a vision of my grandmother standing behind and slightly above a figure dressed like a monk in simple brown vestments.  She had her hands folded in front of her and head bowed.
