Leona L's ADC

Experience description:  

I was lying in bed trying to go to sleep and thinking of our life experiences. I have been feeling so sad about what Gerry had to go through, especially in the last year of his life. I was feeling the pain of allowing him to die and then I heard "I love you."  It did not sound like Gerry.  It had a low toned echo type sound but it was very clear. Then I realized that these words were from my husband. I have been trying to open my thoughts to him instead of thinking about him.
