Laurie's ADC

Experience description:  

Dad died at home with hospice and family. We were sitting around for a couple days dad slipping more and more away. Never coming out of his coma. I needed to get away from it all and catch my breath for just a little bit. I went to a friend's house. He was on the phone so I sat in the living room to wait. The TV was on an Sylvia brown was taking to an audience. Just as I sat down she put up her hand and said to the audience " wait there's something I just have to say before I go on" She looked right at the camera and said" there's someone out there watching who has a love one who is about to pass. This person is hanging on because they are very frightened because of something they feel they might not be forgiven for. You need to go tell this person that God will forgive him and not to be afraid. There is  two loved ones who have passed before him waiting to show him the way. Everything will be alright" then she turned back to the audience and my jaw dropped. I ran out of that house and back to my dads side. I curled up next to him on the bed and gave him that message. 1/2 hr later he flat lined . I was standing nearest the machine and so the nurse and my aunt told me to go ahead and turn it off. He was gone. I didn't want to, but I did. For two weeks I worried about how dad was. Did I lie to him in his last hour? Was he ok? Did I do right by turning the machine off. That death rattle afterwards frightened me. Then one night as I was falling asleep a young man that looked just like dad at about 25 approached me. He held out his hand and said Laurie ,wake up its me dad. Come with me there's something I need to tell you. I took his hand and it felt like I got up out of my body

and we waked into a room that was all white with no real visible walls ceiling or floor. There was a white table with a white chair. Dad asked me to sit. He looked very nervous. First he said Laurie I Love you and I need to tell you to stop worrying. Everything you said was true. then seemed at a loss. I asked him  so did you make it? He said no not yet. I still have some work to do. But I will. Then he glanced nervously over his left shoulder a light flashed and dad was gone. I was standing alone I yelled no wait, I Love you! The star flashed again at it felt like I fell into my bed and woke with a start. Then just laid there awestruck. I believe my words were whoa! That was awesome!
