Sherry M's Grandmother's DBV

Experience description:   

My grandmother lived with my aunt, she was 93 and could no longer take care of herself. My Aunt called me about 7pm the night before and said I better get over there if you want to see her she was really bad. My Grandmother had not been sick so this came as some what of a surprise, but not really. There was a strange bond between my Grandmother and my son, that died. I had said that she would die on the same day Brian died. The night before my son died I was told that she kept saying over and over again somebody was going to died tonight, I can see it but can't do anything about it. She was upset and wring her hands and repeating this over and  over. My aunt asker her who it was, she replied I don't know who but it's a family member. The last Christmas that my son was alive he threw a fit, he wanted to go see her, Brian said Mom she is old a might not be here next year, the funny thing was it was him that wasn't here. I wanted you to know that they both was born in March and both died in October. I Jumped in my car and went over there, at the time I got there she was laying in bed my family was there also. My aunt Barbara and my cousin Doug was trying to set her up and she fell back on the bed her eyes rolled back in her head and stopped she breathing. My Aunt screamed Mom, Mom Please  don't go. I put one hand on my Grandmother and one hand I raised to God and prayed NO ,NO, Lord ,please don't take my Grandmother! Both my Aunt and I was really upset and loud, she came back and my cousin latter said that the way my Aunt and I screaming he would come back to. I spent the 18 hours at her bed side. She talked of a lot of things, like there is so much water, and the light is so bright it hurt's her eyes and she had her eye's closed. she talked of a lot of things in her last 18 hours, and a about a lot of people all of them had died before her. This was odd because the last three years she has had Alzheimer's. The amazing thing about this was the last 18 hours of her life was like she had no sign of her Alzheimer's, it's hard to believe but it's true. There was so many family members that was there, they all thought the same thing. As I said  the last 18 hours she was alive she was talking to family members that had past on before her, but I was so happy to hear her say, look how fast he can run, look at him go. I looked at my Aunt Barbara then I looked at my cousin and thought what is she talking about? Then She said it again, I said Granny what are you talking about? And she said it again. Then I said Granny who are you talking about? She raised her hand up and spread out her fingers. I new then she was talking about my son Brian, he was buried in the number 5 jersey. She could have not knew this because she didn't even go to his funeral, so she had know idea that he was buried  in his jersey, and wouldn't have remembered any way. The last few minute of her life I told her it was ok she could go now, we could take of are self, it's ok. She said I can't he has to help me over. So I said Brian please help my granny over. I don't know if it was him or not that helped her over, but just a few seconds later she tried to set up then laid back down, and then this white smoke like substance arose from her body from head to toe, then it was like it went down in her body and came out her mouth and nose and then she was gone. My cousin Elise stared to cry and scream no, I shouted leave my Grandmother alone, let her go. She was not there the first time that my Grandmother died, I didn't want her to suffered any longer. I have had many ADC, with my son before and after.
