Experience description:  

In the sitting area we always shared to watch the deer and listen to the birds, sitting in my chair, his now empty with my heart breaking......two yellow butterfly's with none other around flew in front of me and then one landed on my arm and the other one on my leg and they stayed that way for a long time, at least five minutes. Never once in my lifetime has this happened.  It made me quit crying and I started to smile and then I laughed and I knew it was from Gordon. It was so comforting. 

One other time shortly after his death and I was in a wheelchair recovering from a very badly fractured leg ( yes, it was quite a bad year ) with the door open reflecting on losses and crying my eyes out with the big door open, a hummingbird flew into the garage, all the way into the middle and hovered in front of my face and stayed that way forever it seemed. Just looked at me in the eyes unafraid as if it were studying me. It had the same effect as the butterfly's.
