Experience description:  

My dream is as follows :I was at work and I called home, surprisingly I hear my father speak, I am very aware in the dream that he is no more and I hear him speak. He told me 3 things, the one I remember is that He loves me very much and then I see this big number 509. This number is not my phone number or house number or any special days.
