evening of August 21, 2000 I had a most unusual dream. I dreamed
that I was looking at photos taken immediately after Harlan's accident
and, in the photos, coming out of the passenger side, there appeared to
be an image. With each consecutive photo, the image became clearer
and larger. It appeared to have arms reaching up toward the heavens.
Eventually, I got the impression that it was happily/joyously hopping/jumping
from one foot to the other as it continued to float upward.
first thought was, 'where did these photos come from?'. Suddenly
it occurred to me! Was this Harlan giving me my v-e-r-y f-i-r-s-t
sign that he was all right?! I immediately began to cry. Then,
I stopped and asked Harlan to let me know if this w-a-s a sign from him
or if I was just imagining it. That's when a comforting, melancholy
feeling came over me. The calm and relaxation I began to feel were
something I hadn't felt since his accident on June 9, 1998.
inside me said 'get up and go downstairs and put what you're feeling right
now into words.'. I tried to, but that's when an aura appeared before
my eyes and, between the comforting, melancholy feeling and the aura, I
fell into a deep, peaceful sleep. As I write this now, the feeling
is still with me. Part of my wants to sit here and cry and yet another
part of me wants to get and run around the house jumping for joy.
What an unusual feeling that is!
grieving parents have told stories of their child sending them signs and
I wondered if I would e-v-e-r be fortunate to experience such pleasure.
Well, now I can say with pride that I too have experienced the most phenomenal
feeling in the world! Yes, my father used to come to me in visions
since he passed away on October 9, 1972. However, his visits began
almost immediately after his passing. Therefore, I sort of expected
the same thing to happen with Harlan and I was quite concerned when it
