Sorry, I have to disagree with you.
Very shortly after my hubby passed (matter of hours) I got a call from an out of state friend. This friend prefaced the call by apologizing for
calling at such a odd hour, then went on to tell me they thought they were having something strange going on.
They wanted to ask if hubs was alright, he'd shown up at their place wanting to know why I'd been doing CPR on him? Hubs was pretty surprised! He also
told them "you can't do what you think you can!!" and was apparently even more surprised about that as well.
That evening his chair was rocking with his dog in it looking very pleased.
This friend lives 8 hrs from me, and called me before I even had time to begin calling friends to let them know he was gone.
In the next few weeks his lamp would come on next to his chair, the TV would come on by itself in the middle of the night. He'd been a raging
insomniac in his last few years.
He also relayed a message to this friend that he was not happy at the funeral home because " it's full of dead people".
Facepalm! This friend had the presence of mind to remind him he had passed over, and unless he could hike himself home he'd have to wait till I could
pick his ashes up!! ( they "thought", heck we don't know how this stuff works!!!)
Believe me or not, your choice.
Neither my friend, or myself weren't sure we hadn't just gone round the bend, but he used phrases my friend wouldn't be familiar with, but I would be
and in no way did his speech pattern deviate from his norm. He also had some very strong opinions about some of the relatives behavior in the
following weeks, also unknown to both myself or my friend. I did find out later thru a third party these things had indeed occurred.
Yep....if it hadn't happened to me I'd be raising an eyebrow as well.
