Lisa's ADC 2300
This experience was not supernatural but still seemed very much like communication beyond the grave. My son died eight years ago. After about six years I was desperate for a sign that he was okay. I started to ask him out loud to send me a yellow rose to let me know that he was still with me. On the anniversary of his death this year I visited his grave. On the headstone someone had laid a single yellow rose. It just seemed to much of a coincidence and I felt that he was communicating with me and letting me know he was still with me.
Was the experience difficult to express in words? No
Did you hear the deceased or hear something associated with the deceased? No

Is there any possibility what you felt was from any other source present in the surroundings at the time of your experience? Yes someone must have put the rose there. But no one ever really visits the grave except me and my mother. I have split up with his father and he now lives in Germany so I have no idea who left it there.

Did you ever in your life have a near-death experience, out of body experience or other spiritual event? Yes Yes when I was younger myself and 2 other girls were all working in a hotel for the summer. We all had the same experiences of someone stroking our hair, blowing on our faces and not being able to wake up. It happened to us at different times and we believe the room was being haunted by something or other.Did the questions asked and information you provided accurately and comprehensively describe your experience? Yes I don't even know if this story is relevant as you may be looking for something a bit more substantial in regards to experiencing a definite sighting or feeling. But just thought I'd relate it back to you anyway.
