Experience description:  

I WAS AWAKENED FROM A SOUND SLEEP AT EXACTLY 4:00 AM . MY DAD HAD BEEN DEAD ABOUT 4 MONTHS AND I HAD NEVER REALLY ACCEPTED IT OR DEALT WITH IT. WHEN I AWOKE MY DAD WAS SPEAKING TO ME PLAIN AS DAY. HIS EXACT WORDS WERE '' DON'T SPEND ALL YOUR TIME THINKING ABOUT ME AND WORRYING ABOUT ME . I'M FINE , I'M ON OAK KNOB .'' OAK KNOB MEANT NOTHING TO ME AND I DEBATED OVER TELLING MY MOM. WHEN I DID TELL HER , SHE KNEW EXACTLY WHERE IT WAS. IT WAS HIS FAVORITE PLACE TO HUNT WHEN HE WAS YOUNGER AND MOM SAYS HE SPENT A LOT OF TIME THERE. I HAVE BEEN FINE EVER SINCE , AND FEEL IT WAS DADS WAY OF LETTING ME KNOW IT WOULD BE OKAY.
