Melvin C's ADC
I was dozing off about 6 or 7 told my son to wake me about 8:30 (he didn't). I am not sure what time it was when I heard "Mel" and seemed as if I was being tapped on my head. Well next thing I know I was a room that was dark around the edges, my brother was standing talking to me and I was to talking asking what the hell was he doing here! That's when I notice my mother and father and everyone else in the room! they seemed younger! I never did understand what he was trying to tell me. It went black and I got up about 8 or 8:30. I felt odd most of the evening and it had been a very strange dream. We were sitting down to have pizza and root beer when my sister called around 10. Her voice was a little strange she told me to sit down she had something to tell me, I said no. I told her what had happened she asked me who told me. I never did give her a reply. This adc was the most strange because know one knew that he was going to pass away. He had worked a full day at his garage and then went to the hospital (my younger brother took him and dropped him off at the hospital).
All the others My Mother, Father, uncles and aunts we knew they were passing. So I always believed that it was just wishful thinking that in my dreams they stopped and said goodbye or hey bud I gone. This one changed everything...
Was this experience difficult to express in words? No
I told my wife about it when she got up about 8:45. 10 o'clock is when we found out, My Sister called and informed us of it.
