Experience description:   

ON THIS MORNING IN AUGUST 1982, I WAS DUE AT MY PLACE OF EMPLOYMENT AT 6:AM.

AS I LEFT MY HOUSE AND ENTERED MY VEHICLE I FOUND THAT I WAS NOT ALONE.  MY SISTER VELLISHA WAS SITTING IN THE PASSENGER SEAT OF MY CAR.  I FELT IN NO WAY COMPELLED TO QUESTION THIS. I FELT WARM, HAPPY AND COMFORTABLE.  I FELT NO SENSE OF THE STRESS THAT I HAD BEEN EXPERIENCING FOR WEEKS, CAUSED BY THE SERIOUSNESS OF MY SISTER'S CONDITION . VELLISHA HAD BEEN STRUCK BY A VEHICLE WEEKS BEFORE AND HAD BEEN IN A COMA SINCE. WITH EACH PASSING DAY HER CHANCES FOR SURVIVAL DROPPED. AS A FAMILY WE PRAYED, WE OVERLOOKED THE SIGNS THAT SHE WAS GETTING WORSE AND WE DOWNPLAYED THE DIAGNOSIS'S THAT THE DOCTORS WERE TRYING TO MAKE US AWARE OF. 

WE WERE MORE EAGER TO ACCEPT THAT NO MATTER HOW SLIM HER CHANCES OF SURVIVAL WERE, THE CHANCES WERE THERE. IT TOOK APPROXIMATELY 15 MINUTES FOR ME TO GET TO MY PLACE OF EMPLOYMENT. IN MY POSITION AS A MANAGER IT WAS MY RESPONSIBILITY TO OPEN THE BUSINESS.  ABOUT A BLOCK BEFORE I REACHED MY DESTINATION, IT HIT ME LIKE A TON OF BRICKS.  THERE WAS NO POSSIBLE WAY THAT VELLISHA COULD BE IN THAT CAR WITH ME. VELLISHA WAS IN A HOSPITAL BED AN HOUR AWAY FROM ME COMATOSE.  I, ALL AT ONCE WAS CONSUMED WITH FEAR.  THERE WAS NO WAY THAT I COULD TURN MY HEAD IN HER DIRECTION, BECAUSE I KNEW SHE WAS THERE AND MY MIND WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO ACCEPT THAT FACT. 

I DROVE QUICKLY IN TO THE PARKING LOT OF MY PLACE OF EMPLOYMENT, JUMPED FROM MY CAR AND QUICKLY UNLOCKED THE DOOR AND RUSHED IN.  I TURNED AND RELOCKED THE DOOR. ONLY THEN DID I FEEL SAFE ENOUGH TO SEARCH STRENUOUSLY OUT THE WINDOW OF MY BUSINESS AND INTO MY CAR. I COULDN'T SEE VELLISHA BUT MY MIND WAS SO SURE THAT SHE WAS IN MY CAR THAT I CONTINUED TO SEARCH FOR SEVERAL MINUTES. WHEN IT BECAME LIGHT ENOUGH OUTSIDE FOR ME TO SEE I SEARCHED AGAIN. MY CAR WAS UNOCCUPIED.  I KNEW IT WOULD BE, BECAUSE I COULD NO LONGER FEEL HER PRESENCE. SHORTLY AFTER THIS INCIDENT OCCURRED VELLISHA DIED.

I HAD A VERY HARD TIME DEALING WITH HER DEATH AND ASKED HER ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS TO SOMEHOW LET ME KNOW THAT SHE WAS ALRIGHT.  WITHIN TWO WEEKS OF HER DEATH, VELLISHA CAME TO ME IN A DREAM. SHE WAS BEAUTIFUL, THERE WAS LIGHT ALL AROUND HER AND SHE HAD A GORGEOUS WHITE GOWN ON. HER FACE WAS FULL OF LIFE. SHE SMILED AT ME AND TOLD ME NOT TO WORRY SHE WAS HAPPY.  AFTER THIS DREAM, I HAVE NEVER DOUBTED THAT SHE IS AT PEACE. I STILL THINK OF HER OFTEN AND AM SAD THAT WE HAD SO LITTLE TIME TOGETHER.
