Sherri B's ADC
My father had passed away several months before this happened. I loved him very much, but we had a strained relationship. Although he was a good dad in many ways, he was an alcoholic with a bad temper which caused him to be verbally abusive. After he died, I was grief-stricken but also very angry as I was left to deal with his estate, a large portion of which was given to a gold digger girlfriend. I was sleeping when suddenly my body was being "whooshed" at an incredible rate of speed through a dark gray tunnel. Immediately before the "whoosh", I felt myself floating above my bed. At the end of the tunnel, the atmosphere was a void of grayness. My brother, who was still alive, said, "It took this for us to be together." With him was my father, who looked sad and was covered with sores. My father hated my brother, who had mental illness. He hated him so much he requested my brother not be permitted to attend his funeral. My brother always wanted my dad's love. My dad looked at me, and I could see his suffering. Telepathically, he told me he was sorry. Three years later, my brother was diagnosed with cancer. He fought a brave battle and suffered tremendously. He died three years later.
