Stan's Experience

Experience description:   

I'm not sure who would believe this story. I'm not sure I believe it. I think of myself as a very normal person. When I was 3 my mother passed away. So besides pictures I have no physical memories of her. I cannot go into details regarding exactly how she passed, As I'm not 100% sure but I have heard several different stories. How she passed is unimportant though. 

She has been gone 35 years and by most of the world, forgotten.  Around 2 weeks ago I started thinking about her and felt a need to find out about her life and the questions I had regarding her death. I contacted her sister after 35 years and started getting answers.

Anyway  about 3 days before this experience I felt a presence and she was overjoyed. I felt it as real as I breath. It was my mother and she was very happy.

So last night my best friend and I are driving and I tell her umm I think my mom is next to me hugging me and telling me its ok son. My mother is very, very happy. My friends  jaw dropped and she started crying. I thought she would think I was crazy, And she thought I would think she was crazy but at the exact same time she was watching my mother die in a hospital bed with the doctors working over her. We both had chills and goose bumps at the same time. It was like a rush of energy hitting us both. I cant believe it happened myself so I don't expect anyone else to believe it.
