My aunt passed away, and she told me she was going to die three months prior to the event. She called everyone to say so. So we got to say goodbye, or so long as we like to say. I could not attend the funeral as she was living 800 miles away. Anne passed on quietly. About four days later after the funeral, I had a dream of her. She had a blue flowered dress on and a overcoat of blue. She was sitting on my mothers old couch in moms place before my Mom died. My other aunt who passed on the year before was on my right side, her name was Jean. My aunt Anne was throwing a fit with me. She said "Look, I was never a gay person, and its all wrong" I said, "What's the matter" She said, looking over at Jean, "Its NOT right" "Fix it"!!! I told her I wasn't sure what she was talking about but I would look into it. She was pretty upset.
End of dream.
The next morning Anne's
daughter called me, she was furious. She said that her Mom was not going to be
buried anywhere except where her father prepaid for her burial, and that my
sister had buried Jean in her Moms spot and there will be heck to pay. I told
her that my sister probably didn't realize this error when she buried Jean. I
then told her that her Mom was coming to me in my dream the night before and
that she was right an my sister had to correct this somehow. My sister had my
aunts ashes put on top of her fathers grave. This must have made Anne happy
cause she didn't appear to me afterwards. I later asked my sisters who attended
Anne's funeral if she had on a blue flowered dress? They were amazed and said
YES, that's what she was wearing.
