Experience description:  

My first aunt that passed away died about 7 years ago.  I remember pretty quickly after she died, My husband and I went to bed one night and turned out all of the lights.  The next morning, when I woke up, the family room lamp was on.  I specifically remember turning it off before we went to bed.  I honestly thought it might be my aunt just sending some sort of message, but still wrote it off, although I have never forgot about it.  My other aunt passed away yesterday afternoon around 3:00.  My husband and I went to bed around 10:30 last night and turned out all of the lights.  I woke up around 2:40, sat up in bed and checked the clock on the bedside table beside my husband, since I don't use an alarm clark to wake up.  The lamp on the table was off.  Around 4:00, my husband woke up, noticed that the lamp beside him was on and asked me why and how it was on.  I woke up and could not believe my eyes.  I immediately remembered when my first aunt had passed away and that lamp being on, and now this had happened this morning.  I can't seem to get it out of my head now.
