Noname A's ADC
at the time my wife then girl firend were sitting in the viewing room alone ,and as we were vboth looking at my mother laying there all of a sudden she sat up turned her head and smiled at us then shortly after she laid back down . At first it appeared as it was her natural body seemingly solid it was when she laid back down that we noticed it was not . At the time she laid down her body seemd to merge with the one lying there ,it looked like when you focus a camera seeing to images becoming one. At the time Wendy my then girl friend had only met my mom one time, as we were not allowed to see each other due to her parents . We were of different faiths and her parents were very upset at our seeing each other , My parents were ok with it.
after my mom had appeared to us wendy looked at me and I at her and we both
said at the same time "did you see that " . we both shook our heads and just
gazed at each other for a moment. I remember telling my dad but not until a few
days later , and he said he new he then told me mom had come to him at our
house when in their bedroom ,she spoke to him and said she was alright and not
to worry. my mom was not a religious person, yet was the kindest and most
loving person I have ever met.My dad was the religious one in the family and
took my sister and I to church every sunday.
