Experience description:  

With my father, his death was fast and unexpected to us. completely shocked, we of course brought my mom home with us to sleep and stay. the first night, the night of my fathers death, i was laying in bed and wondering what to do the next day, when i distinctly heard my father call me , Suzy he said, and it was coming from behind me, i was laying on my stomach right next to my  mom. i was so shocked i think i stopped breathing for a moment. then again, i heard my fathers voice say Suzy  . i was so stupid because i never turned around. i wish i had.   the most interesting thing to me now, is that from the first time  i heard my name to the second, i was trying so hard to wake my mom, so she would hear too and there was nothing i could do to wake her. at the time, i thought this was probably normal. i don't know why i would think that???          

the second incident was the evening my mom died, it too was a shock, this sudden stroke. my mom and i used to watch tv in the evening at times when my husband was gone to bed early for work. i would lay on her bed next to her so she could reach my leg to message it. we never knew why my leg would get such bad knots, now i know , probably was my diabetes diagnosed later on. that was our ritual at any rate, and oh how i appreciated it. well, as you have probably guessed already, that night of my dear mothers death, i was again lying on my stomach and i felt my mother message my  leg. the right leg. the same leg. the difference was it felt so cold. again, i tried like hell to wake my husband and couldn't which was disturbing me. when i couldn't i finally turned around this time , but didn't see anything, but i knew. the next night the exact same thing happened and i looked quicker this time but still could not see anything, but definitely felt my mothers hand message my leg.
