Experience description:  

My father had a massive heart attack the night if his birthday. (21dec) he spent the 22nd in the ICU and passed on the 23rd of December. it was very traumatic experience since he was ok and had been under care if doctors and they had said he was healthy.  I felt life wasn't worth living for anymore.. I had feelings of doubt and confusion, hate and sadness. I couldn't go to work because the hospital environment would make my panic attacks more frequent. I had many experiences as soon as my father passed. I credit that to my father must have known how I was feeling and tried to put my mind at ease. I would communicate with him in dreams as well as songs playing on the radio that was no way related to the radio station and all of a sudden the song that we played during his funeral would come on (what are the odds that a Mormon hymn would play on a soft hits radio station)??

Any ways one night I had a dream that my father was sitting in a purple flowered love sofa in a white room no one around just me and him. I was standing next to the right armrest having such a nice conversation.. He looked younger he had his favorite cowboy red stripe shirt and ray bans on. I remember him smiling and nodding his head but for some reason when I woke up I couldn't remember the conversation I had with him. That morning I got up got ready for work confused and mad that I couldn't remember our conversation why would he be nodding his head? My husband usually goes to bed way after I do and wakes up later. I was at work trying to remember everything about that conversation but I couldn't. Then my husband calls to see if everything was ok and I said yes he then said you were acting strange last night. He then continue to say that I kept on saying " please take me with you" take me to that place " then my husband said he was trying to ask me where do you want me to take you? I kept on saying " ok I'll do my work here and then when I'm done with it, will you come for me? And he said I had a huge smile that just scared him.

I then understood the dream I couldn't remember because he probably told me what I had to do here on earth and the nodding of the head must have been him saying he couldn't take me now. It's been 2 yrs since he is not here and I miss him dearly.. I am comforted by his visitations and signs. Can't wait to see him again.
