Raymond S's Experience
It was Sunday afternoon, August 12, 2001 around 4 o'clock. I was sitting on a bench ready to depart for my vacation destination. Just before this I had a discussion with a friend that didn't want to live anymore. It was a difficult and emotional exchange, a lot was weighed and considered. During the course of the talk much was resolved for this woman and she was able to carry on.
After all this talk I leaned back on the bench, to sit awhile longer before I set off on my journey, in a few minutes the familiar scene around me disappeared and everything became brightness before my eyes. A circle of clouds formed and within this a golden shade. In the centre was a very bright light, whiter than white and hard to look at. the centre of this cloud "tunnel" was quite round and there was a yellow goldish light that could be seen through it.
I had never seen anything like this before in my life.
