Experience description:  

My friend is a wiccan, she knows that dead people sometime come to me to leave messages for those that are left. Her brother in law took his son on what he thought was going to be their last night together. The boy had some kind of legal problems and the father thought his son was going to jail. He did not want his son to suffer the horrors of prison. He told his wife he was taking the boy out to fish. They sat and talked for awhile, the mother called to see when they would be heading back. Had he just waited one more hour the charges were drop and the boy was not going to do time.  He told her they would be leaving shortly. They never came home. He walked up behind the boy and shot him in the head. Once he was sure the boy was dead he then took his own life. The cops found them at the lake. 

I have had lots of experiences but this one profoundly changed me. They emotions were high. The funeral was long. They did a double funeral. The funeral was conducted in both English and Spanish. There were almost if not more than a hundred people there. I sat on the back row where I could see my friend with her sister. 

The two coffins were side by side. The eulogy started. And all at once I saw the man and the boy standing there. The man walked forward to the first row. He disappeared as if he were going down and elevator. I leaned over and asked my daughter who the woman was next to my friend. That is when I found out it was her sister. I told her the man just disappeared in from of her. Just as I finished he raised back up. There was such a sadness on his face.  

The preacher only spent 10 minutes talking about him. How he loved his kids. was a great father and husband. There was an overwhelming out pour of emotion you could help but feel it. Then he lightened the mood and started talking about the first time he met the boy. What a jokester he was. And on queue the little boy popped up around him clowning around. I told my daughter, what he was doing. Then he to went to his mom, and looked like he was hugging her and saying goodbye.  

I ran out after the funeral. I had to get some air. I was shaking. My friend came over and said you saw them didn't you. I told her and her mom what I had seen. They both hugged me and thanked me for coming and helping the family in their time of grief.  

I was so drained I came home and went to bed. For a week after coming home the boy would tap me on the shoulder when I listened to Metallica. I finally told him he really need to go home. I am sure your mom needs you. He finally left.

How do you currently view the reality of your experience?           Experience was definitely real

            Please explain why you view the reality of your experience as real or not real:           I view it as real because the dead can talk to the living. Some people can be sensitive enough to see and hear them, some only suspect.

            Was the experience dream like in any way?   No

I was asleep then a window opened. I was sucked through. There was a big hill with trees lining the path as I walked up I could see Jesus on a cross. I found this strange since I do not believe in the Christ god or Jesus Christ or Satan for that matter. 

There was a great sense of tranquility. I have never known such peace. He looked down at me and said what do you need. I said nothing, I am fine here. He said you have to go back. I told him no. My husband was a good man and he would raise the girls.  

Jesus told me you have to go back. You have work to do. I told him I didn't want to go back. I was tired of the nightmares. Tired of fighting life.  He looked at me and told me the dreams will be gone. Things will work out for you. 

Being as stubborn as I truly am I refused to come back. I found myself being sucked down the hill. I grab the tree, the suction finally pulled me to the window. I hung on as long as I could then I was sucked though. I woke up in tears gasping for air. My husband woke up and I told him.
