Upon seeing her at her bedroom doorway, I was not startled or afraid. The entire experience lasted only a few seconds. She moved from the bedroom doorway directly into the bathroom and disappeared, I remember feeling hurt that she did not look or speak to me. She did not appear to be walking, but calmly and purposefully floating the ten feet toward the bathroom. I had no feelings other than I was just observing her going through the room. She appeared slightly translucent and of a whitish-very light gray color all over. I had a feeling she had a flowing gown covering her body, but there were no distinct features...I just knew it was my grandmother. Minutes later the phone rang and I was informed that she had died in the hospital. There were no smells or sounds as she made her way to the bathroom.
