Experience description:  

I felt I was in communication with Duff.  The sense of words seemed to form in my mind, but I didn't hear anything.  What I was told was "Please tell 'Mom' that sometimes I come by and sleep in my red bed."  Her former owner was in deep mourning for her lost pet.  I knew she had several beds for the dog near the end, trying to make her comfortable, but didn't remember a red one.  I waited a couple of days before passing on the message.  The owner found it comforting and after searching, found the red bed, near her own bed.
