This happened about 15 years ago.
I used to work with a fellow who's wife died of lung cancer, though she was a nurse who never smoked. After she passed on, he raised their two
daughters as a single dad. It was about a year from her diagnosis until she was gone. Around a month before she passed on she told him that she was
going to send him some kind of a sign. He is a very honest, family-oriented, devout Catholic, and I honestly cannot see him lying about something this
serious. Then, from her hospital bed a week before she passed on, she told him she knew what the sign would be....lightning.
I have only been to one funeral in my life, and it was scheduled for 1 P.M., one Saturday, at a local Catholic Church. As we arrived it was
pouring rain out, really hard, the sky was completely filled by very thick, very low overcast clouds, and it made midday as dark as if it was dusk. We
sat down, got settled in, and then boom, thunder, and the lights in the church went out for a couple of minutes. My friend told me that when the
thunder struck, he immediately looked at his watch and, by coincidence, it was 1 o'clock on the dot. After the funeral was over we came out
to find there wasn't a cloud in the sky; I looked in every direction.
Everything was soaked and dripping, yet the sun was shining.
Probably just a fluke that she told him lightning would be the sign, then at the set time of her funeral, at the church it was held in, lightning
happened to strike. At least it was a comfort to her widow, my friend.
