When I was 14 I lived with my parents in the small town of Homestead, Fl. And my Grandmother lived in a trailer a few miles away. When my father took a job in Ft. Lauderdale he sold the house and my Grandma's trailer and moved us all into our new home in Hollywood, Fl. Since I was getting older I got a new waterbed and my bunk bed was taken apart and made into two beds. These were put into my Grandma's room and she slept on one of them.
Grandma was always a very psychic person. My mother told me a story about how when she had miscarried what would have been an older sister she knew before being told and just showed up at the hospital asking for my mother before she even arrived! This was in the late 40's. Then one day I found out for myself when I called her one day and she answered the phone "hello Gene". This was way before caller I.D.
Well Grandma died a year after we moved into the new house and she was cremated and her ashes put in an vase and placed in her old room. Years later I was married to my wife for 4 years when she developed breast cancer. She had it bad and had to have both breast removed along with all her lymph nodes in the area. Before the surgery we moved into my parents house so that my mother could look after my wife as I worked two jobs. We stayed in my Grandma's old room because of the two beds. I didn't want to bump my poor wife in my sleep.
One night I awoke to my wife calling out to me, "Did you see her!" By the time I opened my eyes I could see nothing so I asked what it was that she saw. She told me that at the foot of her bed there had been a young woman in an old nurses outfit and cap. It had a Red cross on both the cap and on her breast.
Well, I didn't really know what to think so I calmed her down and went back to sleep. The next morning we told my Mother about what had happened at breakfast. She had this all knowing look in her eye and she got up and went into the other room for about ten minutes. When she returned she had an old box of photographs. She took one out and showed it to my wife. Now understand she had never met my grandma and had only seen pictures of her when she was old. My wife instantly cried out "that was the woman she had seen!"
She showed me the picture and sure enough it was of a young woman in an old nurses uniform. Mother then told me for the first time that Grandma had been a Red Cross nurse during WW1.
Well, we assumed that Grandma was just being a good Nurse and checking up on my wife. But my wife's cancer was spreading into her spine and brain and she soon died. It was then that I realized that she was there to prepare her for her journey. To welcome her to the afterlife. I could not help but be a believer now!
