Experience description:  

I dreamed I was very sad because Harry had passed away.

I was crying in the dream, and I said I can't show Harry love anymore.

Then he broke through my dream out of no where, and he stood before me and smiled.

He said it's okay sweetie, and opened his arms for me to come to him.

We embraced, and the hug was do real.
