Tina A's ADC

Experience description:  

I was in the shower after a long two days following moms passing. Eyes closed, washing my hair. I heard "Tina" in a distant like voice. It had a hint of panic to it. Mom was only 61 and had so much anxiety about death. I have some people that love with me so I thought it might've been them but my door was still locked and I asked if they had come in and they said no. I know it was her. She was trying to reassure me. We grew up in a terribly dysfunctional household and I have always carried the weight. I am Catholic so naturally I was worried about her soul. It kind of worries me that there was a hint of panic in her voice but she always did have such bad anxiety. I pray for her multiple times a day and I hope she has made it to His side.
