Experience description:  

Since I do not want to do separate forms for each experience, I am numbering them in order: 

1.  I was at the front door of my home and my deceased husband opened the door from inside dressed in black Levi's and white shirt, which he never wore before and he was dancing. 

2.  I was awakened by his voice saying "good morning" in very clear tones. 

3.  While I was in the bedroom, I saw him open the closed bedroom door from the living room side and as he was opening the door, he had on red pants and a red and white striped shirt (which he also never wore) and he said "da da" (like, here I am) and he then faded away. 

4.  I have a shed outside with a very heavy door that never stays open by itself.  We park the riding mower inside it.  Well, I finished cutting the grass and as I was approaching the shed door, trying to figure out how I was going to keep it open to put the mower away, it opened by itself and stayed open until the drove the mower inside.  Without even thinking about what happened, I found myself saying "thanks, honey".  I can't what I said and thought what the heck is going on. 

5.  My electric fireplace quit operating.  I tried to get electricians, etc. to work on it, but no one wanted to get involved with it.  So I waited a while and one morning a thought came to me to open the Yellow Pages under Fireplaces and call someone.  My eyes immediately went to a certain company and I called them.  They said they would come out and look at it.  The owner of the company came and when I mentioned that my husband had recently (couple of months) passed, he looked at me and said there is a strong presence in this room (living room).  I couldn't figure out what was going on but he looked at me and said he apparently wasn't here to fix my fireplace because he was actually channeling a group of people wanting to get through and communicate with me.  This blew me away because he was someone I contacted without knowing about him or his ability.  I was almost paralyzed until I started to feel relief.  He told me that he saw a bouquet of flowers sitting on top of a book and that I should read.  He was telling me that a man was in control of this group of people who were talking at once, but this man wanted me to know that he would be with me and when I close my eyes for the last time he will be there to greet me.  I asked if my husband was okay and he told me that this man in charge of the group of people said "superb", which I something my husband would say.  I asked if my husband was in another dimension and was told "yes".  There are many dimensions and my husband is in a wonderful dimension with people all around him who love him and listen to him. 

Comment:  If you think this is unbelievable, think again.  I was very skeptical at first, but the gentleman who came to fix my fireplace turned out to be more than expected.  He is a typical man and you would never know that he has such an ability to communicate with the deceased.  And, get this, when he went back to trying to fix my fireplace it all of a sudden started to work and he looked at me and told me that the man in his vision told him to stop working on it at the time it fixed itself.
