Experience description:  

The first time my uncle spoke to me was while I was sleeping. My husband and I were living in NC at the time. He spoke to me with concerns about my husband's drug addiction and wanted to tell me how proud he was of me because he never told me that. Then at a later date, he sat down with me at a table (I was asleep at the time also during this talk) and he began to tell me how we could make money off the farm my grandfather had left me. He told me to plant it in strawberries and how much money we could make off of it. When I told him he was dead, what was this we stuff, he told me that was beside the point and to listen to him and do what he said do and we could make lots of money this way. After moving from Asheville, he has not spoken to me again in my sleep.

In Jan 2004, my husband was found dead at his best friend's house. It was suspected drug overdose but until we got the autopsy results, we did not know what the cause of death was. I blamed his best friend for not telling me he was there. About 3 weeks after his death, one night while I was sleeping, he came to me in my sleep and told me not to blame Chris, it was an accident and he was sorry. He then told me he missed me and he loved me. Then he would speak to me often in my sleep. Then on one occasion, he took me to where they did his autopsy. I was like floating with him at the end of the table his body was lying on. I saw the people in the room and his body. He showed me who had stolen his wedding band and his sweater from his body after the autopsy was completed and then he told me not to let this man get away with this. He told me not to do nothing that I was a fighter and to move mountains if I had to to get them back. The last time my husband has spoken to me in my sleep was in Sept 2004. He came to me and asked me if he was really dead. I told him yes he was. He said he loved me and has not spoken anymore since then. I can feel his presence in our home at times and my son and I have seen in walking thru the house from room to room.
