Spirit Stories: In Your Own Words
My son died in 1990. He suffered from the AIDS virus for approximately 2 and one-half years following the first diagnosis.
I was notified by the doctor in the hospital to come as soon as possible as there was an emergency. He did not tell me my son had already passed away. When I arrived, I was able to enter his room and privately say a prayer as well as speak to him in my own way. I told him I loved him and knew this was his release from all the pain he had suffered.
When I returned home (with my sister and younger son) I was getting ready to make a cup of tea for my sister, when she called me in an alarming voice. She said the cat was speaking. I quickly went into the kitchen, just in time to hear a deep voice coming from my cat, Sam. I could just about make out the words "I love you Mommy". My son who is definitely a skeptic couldn't believe what he heard and my sister was also in shock.
I knew it was my son, Marty, letting me know he heard me tell him I loved him. I will never forget that experience.
