Experience description:

I have had much communication from my husband.  One of the most memorable was a very vivid dream of him not too long after he passed.  He was there from the shoulders up, rather like I was standing near him, and he looked as he had before he became ill.  I kissed him on his neck and could both feel and smell him.  For all intents, it was real.  It was a brief dream, but comforting.

My mother also communicated in a dream.  I was sitting and she was behind me and somewhat to my right side brushing my hair.  I never saw her directly.  She suddenly stopped and put her hand on my right arm.  I felt a deep sensation of love from her that I hadn't felt since I was a child.  This dream was also brief but comforting.
