On Monday, December 17, 2012 I attended the funeral for my Uncle Al. It was a closed casket funeral with a casket sized United States flag draped over
the top. He was a Korean War veteran, and belonged to the VFW hall in our town. May he rest in peace.
All during the funeral I could visibly see what I would call a “mirage” hovering over the top of Uncle Al’s casket. I say a mirage because it
was the very same visual affect of a heat mirage, yet the mirage at no time took on any shape or form. I looked up at the ceiling to see if there was
a heat vent over the top of the casket? There was not. I will say it was freezing in the funeral home; we had strong winds outside with snow flurries
all day long. I would guess the temperature in the funeral home as being less than 60 degrees which was not warm enough for me to ever warm back up
after coming in from the cold. I was freezing the entire time I was in the funeral home. So was my sister.
I looked around at other objects to see if I could see this same mirage affect. I looked at the big floral arrangements; I looked at the wall, the
floor, all over really, Nothing! Every time I looked at the casket, I could see the mirage. I wasn’t freaked out by the mirage nor was I crying at
any point before during or after the service. I’m just trying to establish with you all that my eyes were not messed up from tears.
I watched the mirage and it went from hovering over the top of the casket for long periods of time, and then it would MOVE to just beyond the foot of
the casket and hovered there for a time and then it would return to the top of the casket. This motion repeated.Twice I saw it moved away from the top
of the casket to beyond the foot. At the beginning of the service I was looking for an explanation for the source of the mirage right up until I saw
the mirage move just beyond the foot of the casket. Now, I’m thinking a saw his spirit? I can’t find any other reason for what I saw. By the way,
my sister could not see the mirage.
What did I see? I am completely open to another explanation. I placed this thread in the paranormal studies forum because this is where I believe it
Thanks for listening.
