Experience description:  

The night before we buried my father, at 3:00am I awoke after seeing him in a dreamlike vision. I was in a hospital room standing over my mother who was in the bed, arguing with her that she had to stay because she was very ill. She kept telling me "no", and wanted to leave immediately. I looked towards the doorway and there standing was my father who had died 4 days previously. Daddy, I said, what are you doing here? You are dead. He said he knows, but he came back to tell her, as he pointed towards my mom, to listen to me and do as I say, because she has to be here. He said to my mom you are going to be with me, but it is not time yet.

She cried out take me now, I want to be with you, but he again said it was not time yet. I saw my aunt and uncle standing behind him. I had not seen them since I was a little girl. My dad looked at me and told me how beautiful it was where he is. He said the flowers are so beautiful and the rivers and trees and everything is wonderful. He said it was so good to see all of his family again, and told my mother again to listen to me, and that she would be with him but not now.

I then woke up. That happened in 1986, nine years later, 1995, my mom was seriously ill, had to go in the hospital, and profusely argued with me that she did not want to go. There was no choice and against her very being she went in, had an operation for cancer, and died 4 days later. I stood over her bed and argued how very much she needed the surgery, the identical scenario that occurred in that dream.
