Experience description:  

I traveled from eastern New Mexico to my home in southwest Arizona and at a location on Interstate 10 I stopped at a truck stop that belonged to my friend Bill. I ate breakfast in the truck stop restaurant and asked the lady at the cash register about Bill. She suddenly looked sad and told me that Bill had died recently after a short bout with cancer. I was shocked and saddened, because Bill had always been a dynamic, vibrant man with an excess of energy and a love of life that I had admired. The lady told me that Bill's widow was living on the property and showed me where she lived which was a double wide trailer located on the south edge of the truck stop property. 

I decided to contact her and offer my condolences, as well find out what had happened to my friend. I went to the front door of the house and knocked on the door. It was answered by a stunning woman with long blond hair and who was wearing nothing except a long t-shirt that revealed to me that she had nothing on underneath. I was quite shocked by the sight and it took me a moment to gain my composure, and then I introduced myself to the woman. She seemed not the least bit concerned about her manner of dress, and in fact she seemed quite amused at my reaction to her dress, or lack of as it were. She stated that she was Bill's widow, and when she realized who I was she suddenly gained a sense of modesty and pulled a sheet draped across the arm of a chair near the door and wrapped it around her.  

I had spoken to her on numerous occasions on the phone, but this was the first time I had spoken to her in person. She invited me in and over the next half hour she told me how Bill had died, and I offered my condolences and wished her well. In truth I could not wait to leave her presence, she not only made me feel very uncomfortable because of her lack of clothing when we first met, but because of something beyond my understanding at that time that was making me uneasy. 

I left and began my ninety mile trip south towards my home, and during the entire trip I could not get my mind off of the encounter with Bill's widow and my shock at his death. 

I went to bed quite late that night and sometime after midnight I was awakened by a spirit that entered my room. Let me explain that I have always possessed the ability to sense the presence of spirits, good or bad as the case may be and so I was not surprised by this occurrence. I could not see the spirit, but could sense it's presence and then I realized that the spirit was my friend Bill. Bill spoke to me mind to mind as is normal communication between mortal and spirit. 

Bill was simply frantic and confused by his death because it had happened so fast. He pled with me that I go back to the location of his truck stop and resolve a conflict between his ex-wife and his daughters Chris, Toni and Samantha. He was simply filling my head full of information, because he was grateful that I could hear him and now he felt he had a way to resolve the problems between them through me. He explained the problem to me and that it was that the girls and his widow were fighting over his sizeable wealth and he asked me to tell his daughters to stop fighting over his earthly estate with their step mother and settle their differences quickly. He told me many things and I will not relate them in the interest of brevity here, but he kept me awake for about four hours talking to me. I finally had to ask him to leave me alone to get some sleep, or I would not be able to do as he requested the next day. He left reluctantly, but woke me up at five o'clock a.m. urging me to leave to the truck stop, or that I would miss something that needed to happen. 

When I arrived at the truck stop I ate in the restaurant hoping to find one of his daughter's who managed it there. I finished my meal and re-entered my car with the intent of going to Bill's widow again, but as I crossed the parking lot and then knocked at the door of his widow I found that no one was home. I then noticed two women that seemed familiar to me walking across the parking lot and talking very intently to one another. I decided to approach them and so I drove up behind them and stopping my car, stepped out and said, "Are either of you Bill's daughters? It turned out that it was Toni and Cris, Bill's two youngest daughters, and then I very awkwardly told them that I was there because I had been asked to come by their father. I thought that they would laugh and dismiss me, but on the contrary they seemed to be desperate to hear of anything about their father, and anxious to hear what I had to say. 

We spent the afternoon together in their father's office located on a second level over the truck stop in which I recounted to them the things their father had told me about resolving the discord between their step mother and themselves. I also revealed to Toni that she was pregnant and that her father knew about it. No one knew about her pregnancy except her sisters. I told them things about themselves that I would have no way of knowing. We were all in tears almost throughout the conversation because we could feel Bill' presence with us very strongly while our conversation went on. 

I learned from the girls that the step mother had totally excluded Bill's daughters from his funeral. Bill had stated in his will that he wanted to be buried in a rough board coffin lined with horse blankets, and then buried in a cemetery located at his childhood home in Texas. After his death he was embalmed and then she and two of her boyfriends had hauled his remains to the designated spot in Texas in the back of a pickup truck and buried him there without ceremony of any kind. The girls, nor Bill's mother were not invited

to the funeral and of course they had experienced no closure and were very upset about the way they were treated. They do not even know where he is buried and the widow will not tell. 

Our conversation lasted into the sunset of the Arizona desert and I came away from the meeting feeling that at least two of Bill's daughters had experienced closure because of the desires of their father for me to contact them. I also learned that Bill's widow was not what she appeared to be, and that in fact she may be a black widow and I am suspicious that perhaps his death may not have been related to his cancer. 

Bill visited me one more time a short time after this event took place, and this time he seemed relieved and happy and grateful to me for doing for him what he could not do for himself.
