Experience description:  

I was sleeping and dreaming.  In the dream I was at my uncles funeral but it was not the way his actual funeral went.  It was after the funeral and everyone was still inside the place except myself and my mother (my uncles sister).  I was distressed about my uncle being gone and my mother was trying to comfort me with words about my uncle.  I said to her "You know it's not the same.  You out of everyone knows it's not the same."  (meaning that my uncle being gone and in a better place he same as him actually being here and that he has gone forever).

Suddenly then I felt (physically felt) something I could not see speeding forwards me so fast it had an actual force and then I saw my uncle walk very quickly towards me and he got to where I was and he lent down and kissed me on the cheek.  I felt him do this.  I felt his body (shoulder I think) touch my chest and I woke up at his point.  I felt extremely scared as this had never happened to me.  Where I felt my uncles body touch my chest I was tingling in that exact place.

Describe in detail your feelings/emotions during the experience:           (In regards to question 22, I felt none of those emotions but I did feel scared.  Something that I did not believe could ever really happen deep down actually happened).
