Experience description:  

I visited my father for 3 hours in the day. He was in pain from hurting his back but other than that he was fine. We had a wonderful loving day together. I went home and went to sleep. I was a little sad because he was in pain and 80 years old. I woke up from a dream in which he was about 45 years old and smiling with his arms reaching out to me. There were large crystal shaped totally clear raindrops falling around him. I thought this was strange, went to the bathroom, took a sip of water and decided to think about it in the morning when my thoughts were clearer. I looked at the clock and it was 2:40a.m. My phone rang at 6a.m. It was my sister telling me my loving Father passed away. He passes away approximately at 2:40a.m. Per my stepmother.
