Experience description:  

1:  Three days after his death, I had a phone call from his phone.  His brother told me that the phone was in the other room and asked what name would my name be under.  I did sms the phone and call it back.  The brother said there was no record of that however, he said I wasn't the only one getting calls. 

2:  Before I left for his funeral, I looked for a rose that he gave me and couldn't find it and I was certain where I left it.  When I returned from the trip travelling to his funeral I looked again in the same spot.  Once again I couldn't find it.  Then at the peak of my grief I felt I needed to look again and it was there. 

3:  I placed the rose on a picture frame as a memory of him, he gave me this rose when I first started dating him.  On his birthday my brother and I were laughing at the funny names he had given some of his animals.  At this point the rose lifted off the picture frame and fell to the floor some distance away. 

4:  When he was sick he stayed at my house and wanted his cat brought to him. This cat stayed in my area for 2 months.  I left it food outside my door as it would not let me get near it.  When Robert went to hospital I hardly ever saw the cat.  One week later exactly to the day he died, I asked him to bring his cat back to me.  I was worried about her as she was pregnant.  I asked him in my bedroom and pleaded for her to come back.  I walked out my front door and she was there.  Not only did she not run away but she let me pat her and took her inside. 

5:  My first night home, I couldn't sleep.  I just shut my eyes hoping it would come.  My room is extremely dark, I saw a very bright light in front of my closed eyes, like a flash light.  I wasn't scared by choose not to open my eyes. 

6:  I travelled to another destination to get a visa. As I was walking into the bathroom of the airport, I asked if he still loved me.  The song that was playing when I walked in "I will always love you".  Not sure if this just a fluke.
