Josephine C's ADCs
was sitting and watching TV when all of a sudden my phone started playing the
song Crimson and Clover which was "our" song. It was just sitting on the end
table, I hadn't touched it and it has that song as a ringtone but it wasn't the
ringtone, it was playing the complete song. It has done it several times after

That he was ok and I knew he was letting me know and watching over me.
What was the best and worst part of your experience? The fact that I have the feeling he is watching over me and letting me know he is fine is wonderful. Showing his love for me by sending my grandaughter over because she dreamed he told her to give me daisies and marigolds today on his birthday when she had no idea my favorite flower is daisies which was my bridal bouquet cause he said it would make me smile really floored me because there was no way she knew about the daisies being my favorite flower was powerful.
