Will C's ADC
I was having a particularly difficult day. I went to the garage, with the lights off, sobbing and begged my father that I could just "know he was with me". Immediately after my request I heard plainly in his voice, "close your eyes and you will." Being absolutely startled and shock I obeyed and experienced two blinding flashes of white light followed by ice cold chills radiating from my shoulders to my feet. I had an immense sense of peace and calm wash over me. I came in and told my mother and wife what happened. My mother said just prior to me going into the garage she told my father "help him, he needs you now".
