I was sitting on my couch watching the movie 8 Mile. My cat, Lynx was sitting on my lap. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw a bright hazy light, which I recognized immediately as my mom, because I had seen the same exact form several times since she died. My cat, as well as myself turned to look at it but couldn't see it straight on. But I do know that lynx was able to see the same as I because he turned his head at the same time i did. I felt comforted and continued with my movie. All of sudden, right beside me and level with the couch arm, another, very different light came into view. It had a perfect round bright center with light and misty color, like my mom, shooting out all around the center. I knew immediately that someone else was with my mom. I was hoping it was Victor, but wasn't sure. My cat again saw this light. I said my thanks to them for coming to me and thought about it for awhile, then continued on with my duties. After the movie was over, I went upstairs to my bedroom and decided to look up pictures of Eminem. I was looking through single photos that were rather large, when a picture came up that parts of it had a grayish/white..misty, almost smokey, look to it. I thought to myself, ‘This looks like one of those ghost pics I've looked at on the net.’ Well, I glanced up to look at the form at the top when I almost fell out of my chair, I saw my moms face, crystal clear.....But transparent....
I couldn't believe it. I gazed in amazement for awhile and realized that there was another form down below, so I had to get my courage up, looked at it and busted out in tears..There plain as day is Victor. Grinning from ear to ear. My picture from Heaven..my mom and friend coming through together was the most precious gift I have ever received in my life. What amazes me the most is that I was able to save the photo on my computer. I can look at it when ever I feel the need. I never thought I would be allowed to do that, so I kept it on for several hours, because I just knew this was a one time thing. Anyway, the lights I saw before hand, I know for a fact, was them on their way to a photo session..lolol..I thank them for having so much energy to give this to me, and to God for allowing them to ease my mind, as far as Victor was concerned, because I was having a terrible time with his death. He looks so happy I can't believe it. I don't think I ever saw him smiling so big. So I know he is fine and he was letting me know this. My grief is in a different place now because of this and I am thankful. I know I will see them again, and to know that he has access to my mom, boy, is he in good company. They didn't know each other in life. He was buried on his 17 birthday.
He was looking so forward to that day. With that smile, I see why...........

The night before Victor died. His last night at work. I had this feeling I have never had before. The whole night
of my last night with him was very weird to say the least. I know I said "this is weird" to myself 10 times that night. For example, and this is only one, Victor came over to me and placed his hand over my heart, on my chest. He has never touched me before. Not in a sexual way, a very loving way. I looked at him to see what he wanted and when our eyes met, I had the strangest feeling of electricity go through me and I emerged into his pupils. We looked into each others eyes for awhile. I don't know how long, but longer than should have been. I think I touched his soul. Honest to God. That's what happened. He was doing the same to me. I'm sure he felt it too. He never did say what he wanted, his hand remained on my chest the whole time. After we finally broke away, I was very weak
inside, I felt it. I said as he was walking away. "That was weird" and he said "Yeees it was" and continued walking. Another is that we had an extra ticket to the Atlanta Braves game for the next day and I asked him if he would like to go. He was all for it. But I heard a voice in my head..no lie..I'm not crazy..say "You can't take that boy with you to the game, he has other plans." I took that as a warning. I re-nigged on him..and his other plans were to die.. I felt I was being told something that night. But just didn't know what exactly it was..Now i know...
