Javelina,I may be wrong I have recently been in contact with a animal spirit and haven't seen it in a while and it may have crossed over I don't really know. Thank you for your information and your help

Thank you ghostgirlforever, but I guess we'll just have to disagree on that point. They may not go where humans go, but then again, they just may.
The fact that you see animal spirits has no bearing on them crossing over dear. If that were the case, you would have to believe that humans don't either. People see them all the time!
Cheer up hun! Animals deserve their own peice of heaven.

Thank you for the lovely sentiment.
I'll be watching for your experience to be published. I love that we can share these experiences here, where people understand it and accept that what we've witnessed at these most sensitive times, is a very real event. ❤

Thanks again,

Hi Jav, I have only just discovered your stories!

You have immortalized your little sister Sheila, in your heart-rending account. I can feel the love, the pain, the sorrow, and also a sense of relief. It is sometimes hard to believe that life is so transcient; to wish for just one more tomorrow.
My deepest sympathies on your loss. I know it has been quite a while now, but I am sure you still look back with a sense of longing. Your account of Sheila's passing, has definitely stood the test of time!

You have my deepest gratitude for posting this lovely account. ❤
Best wishes, Fergie

ChildOfTheLotus,
Thanks so much for apreciating the experience we had that night. Each comment I receive on this story makes me feel closer to the people who leave them. And it's nice to hear that it touches people so.
On a side note:
So far, you are the only one who caught that about my mom and the tree. I'm telling you, it got to be a joke in our little home town. You may have heard of the place since you live in Vegas. Big Bear Lake isn't far from you. There's a stretch of road on the main highway thar goes through our town called 'Red Ant Hill', and for all the years I lived there I never tried to find out how it got it's name (you know I'm going to look it up now though, right?), but it was a long 'S' shaped curve that was much higher at one end. If you're going downhill in the winter and it's icy, it can get pretty squirrely. As you come to the second curve in the 'S', there is a huge pine tree with a very wide trunk that sits just a foot or two off to the side. That's the tree. They never would take it down because it actually protects the house that sits 10 or 15 beyond it. But that tree was the bane of my mom's existance. She would be grumbling to herself as she took that curve in the winter. And whoevr was with would be holding on tight because you just knew it was your turn. Once we got safely past it, life was good, but for the mile or two before you got there that was all you could think about. 😆
It's funny when I think about it now, and she never hit it hard enough to do any harm to herself, but it was like a magnet for her! We carved her name in it once, no idea if it's still readable.

Thanks again,
Jav ❤

Oh my goodness, this was such a heart-touching story I have tears in my eyes. I'm a sensitive woman, but not usually this sensitive. I'm very sorry for your loss, but it was beautiful how peacefully your sister decided to say goodbye.

By the way, your mom hit the same tree 4 times? That part gave me a laugh that I really needed. This story is going in my favorites.

Vanessanda,
I'm glad you are paying attention. Myself, I consider those to be harmless really. It's the ones that show up advertising as a business that tend to piss me off. You'll see them every now and then, showing up all high and mighty with some lame advice and then offering their services. FOR A PRICE! If you see one of those you can either contact zzgranny, or if she's on vacation you can email Martin.
I wrote a poem about it once, it's in the comment thread of one of my Anchorage Haunting stories. 'Mr M' in the poem is Martin. Rook and I were here alone one night and I got bored, but it was good fun. 😆

Thanks, it concerned me because I came across it on a 13 year old OP's story. I didn't check the ages of the others concerned. If it's been approved by the mods then it's probably authentic.

Hi,

TRENTON84,
I know how hard it is to watch as someone you love so much starts fading away from the abuse they have put their body through. And yes, their loved ones are going through it as well. We all wish we could help them quit, or even cut back. But we also know that they have to want it, and they have to do it. Sadly, it doesn't always work out that way.
I'm so sorry that you are going through this, it breaks my heart. Just make sure that he knows you will always love him. It's hard to do sometimes, I know how frustrating it can be. But in the end, it is the best you can offer. And I believe it helps them make their transition into the next life a little bit smoother when there is love to help guide their weary souls.
Thank you for reading and commenting. You have a good heart and I hope your grandpa does get better. That can happen.

I believe I had a similar experience with my Dad. I was driving to the hospital and "The Living Years" came on the radio. I found out later it was at or near the time he passed. I just wanted to let you know that you weren't alone in such an experience.

[at] SaraBeth,
You are absolutely right. It was special. I was honored by that gesture even more than you know.
I have five other sisters (our brother passed a couple of years before Sheila) the two who did not even go to the hospital at all, cannot recall receiving any sign of her passing. And they are the type that would recognize a sign.
Three sisters made it to the hospital before she passed. All three live in So. California and were much closer to the hospital than I was. Sheila knew I wouldn't make it to her in time, so she came to me.
You should have seen Ruth's (my daughter's partner) reaction. It was priceless! She had never witnessed anything close to a paranormal experience in her life before that night. She tried to hold in her awe and wonder over the whole thing, but it got the best of her in the end.😊

Thank you,
Jav ❤

[at] Tempe_Toxic,
I almost don't know how to respond. I thank you for appreciating my experience from that night for what it was, a sweet and loving goodbye as Sheila moved on. She knew exactly what to do to get our attention. No one in that car had any doubt about what was happening. It didn't need to be discussed. It just was.
I imagine her being light as air, floating, sailing, spinning, skating, dancing and laughing as she went. Her long hair loose and flowing free. That image makes my heart smile. ❤ 😊
Thank you for leaving such a beautiful post.

In all my expirence's...all the times, all the people I have seen after they passed, only once have I ever seen some one close to me... Someone I loved. I didn't make it through your story with out stopping several times to wipe my tears. I don't know you... I didn't know your sister but what I can tell you from what I do for my life is that your sister reaching out to you that way was her saying she loved you. You're very lucky. And you are a wonderful writer I look forward to your stories.

When I read this it felt as if I was hit by a truck right in my chest and just thinking about it while typing is making me tear up. It reminds me of when I woke up in the morning a bit scared and found out an hour later that my aunt passed away. I'm glad your sister gave you a goodbye. I wish that would happen to us all... Getting a nice goodbye.

Morticia1,
Thank you for reading my story. Sheila coming to say good bye was so perfectly timed that it was in no way an accident that the song came on when it did. My kids still talk about that night whenever one of their friends brings up the topic of ghosts, and they tell them the story. It's funny to watch their expressions when they realize there were so many witnesses, and one of them is a Sunday school teacher (she teaches high school English too).

Oh my gosh... I remember this story! This is the first story I have ever read when I came across this site. And in a way, it broke my heart.

I used to be an alcoholic, too. But everything changed since I met Jake... He took me hiking... (I hope you remember my story...:)) And it took my mind off alcohol ever since.

It is mysterious how our loved ones has their own way of saying good bye especially if they know that we are having a hard time letting go of them. Sheila is an example. You now have an angel watching and guiding you. ❤

Thnks for reading. It wasn't so much her reflection, a it was me taking on her characteristics. My hair had actually gone wavy, not just in the reflection. And the chin was more in the way I held my head as I went to look up into the mirror. When my daughter saw what I saw, that was when I Knew the time was close.

It seems strange that you saw your/her reflection while she was still alive? Not disbelieving, just pointing out an oddity

Zeo,
Thank you so for your comforting words. The added prose has touched my heart.❤
Sheila was always known for her entrances.
Whether it be a party or a Sunday sermon, when she showed up it was noticed.
And as expected, her exit was also.

And though the lonely wind will blow
The skies above are still
She glides on air, a spin, and there
She dances o'er the hill

Thank you so much for posting this, even if it wasn't that recent, it's good to come across those good 'ol heart-felt experiences with relatives. I'm sorry that she passed before you got to say goodbye, properly. I guess you can remain content in the fact that her suffering is now over.

I agree! For me, Ritchie Valenze singing "Oh Donna" brings me to tears every time. It's a shame what has happened to all those that were taken so soon. But they left their mark on the culture and we're all better for it, is what I say.

Aussie,
You crack me up! OK, same era, but closer to Buddy Holly than Ritchie Valenze. Who, by the way, went to the same school as my older sister Kathy. It was Pacoima Junior High in the San Fernando valley, and they attended it together. AND she still has his album that he autographed to her. Now how's that for cool?

Leenome,
I just now realized you had left this comment. Thank you, the scenery at night in the desert can hit you that way. You can see for such a long distance when the moon is bright, and when it isn't, the stars seem so close you can touch them. If it weren't for the beauty of the nighttime, I don't think I could stay here. Right now it's at least 100 degrees outside and the summer has just begun.
I have to smile every time I think about me pleading for the radio that night, we had been on the road for hours and it was to the point that they were going to start replaying Cd's we had heard already. But I agree with you, it could have been any station and that song would have come through. It was destiny.

Thank you again,
Jav

The way you described the scene in your comment is arresting. Your words are able to recreate the scene beautifully. I find it interesting that you all were listening to cds for the longest time and then YOU begged for the radio to which they all finally gave in:) Thank Goodness for that or the song would have never had a chance to play... And then the Oldies station is the only station that would come in clearly:) It was as if it was meant to take you back to a time when all of you were young and the world hadn't lead you all beyond the safety of your front yard. I believe that song would have come on at any point that you would have turned the radio on.

LeeHome,
Thank you for your kind words. You are right, she couldn't have made it any more perfect than she had. I don't know if you've ever been to Arizona, but the desert is beautiful at night. And September is still warm weather here. So, anytime you have to travel, it's best to do so at night when it's cooler out and less traffic is on the road. So for us to have been delayed because of the traffic, is odd in itself. But when we did pull over to the side, and the song was fading away, we were looking out on the desert from the top of a long canyon wall. The moon gave off just enough light to make everything look surreal, frozen in time almost. It was like standing in a painting. The only thing that seemed to move at all were the shooting stars. We never did bother to check, as it was obviously a meteor shower, but the scene was just the most perfect moment in time, the kind you feel was made for you personally. I'll never forget that.
And to your question about the year 1962? No special significance whatsoever. Sheila was born in 1959. The oldest and youngest of us eight children are ten years apart in age, and 1962 was just another year. ❤ ❤

I started tearing up when I read your story. Your sister knew exactly what to send to you so you would know without a doubt she was thinking of you in that moment just as you were thinking of her. That's beautiful. Just out of curiosity, does the date of the song, 1962, have any significance in regards to your sister?

Thank you for reading my story, it's not listed anywhere but on my profile so I'm glad you actually found it.
Even I can't read it without crying, it was so typical of her though, to come to us before crossing over. She was a figure skater when we were growing up and I like to think she was skating away and stopped to perform one last double axle for us on her way out.

Thank you PetersSpirit, I'm glad you liked it.

Heather911,
I'm glad you read my story. I've been thinking about my sister and brother a lot since you posted your story. I don't believe either one of them have been around since they passed on. I know my sister crossed over, I felt her leave that night. I also felt the freedom she was experiencing at that moment as well, and I can say it was the most eye opening sensation I've ever felt.
I know that both of them have moved on to another realm, another life on earth, another chance to get things right and brighten someone elses life with their beautiful light. Both were exceptionally talented, the kind of people that are described as born with their special talents, they just came to it naturally. I do miss them, but I know they've moved on to brighter lives.
I often wonder if it isn't true when they say that some people were just "born before their time" and they are only given just so long before the clock gets reset and takes them away from us, only to put them where they truly belong. Like they were on loan to us for that small window of time. And we were just fortunate to have them for as long as we did.

😭 ❤ My brother past away May 12, 2007... I am very sorry that she had to go that way! My brother was on life support then the doctor said he was brain dead and we pulled the plug 19 days away from his 21 birthday!
Hope and prayer are with you ❤

Hi Javelina, This was such a touching story. I'm so sorry about your sister. She definitely said goodbye in her own way to all of you, and you felt it too. It's amazing how close a bond can be between people. Thanks for sharing this amazing but sad story. Take care. Trix ❤

What a sweet story! This story was well written. At least it seemed that life had in some delicate way said a soft goodbye to your beloved sister. Things that happen like that are some of the most profound beauties of life.

DC, So sorry for your loss, I do believe the song your heard was no coincident... I truly do... I have experienced that a number of times before and after the death of family members, it's reassuring to hear it from someone else... And my eldest brother has been dry for 4 years... I know the destruction that alcoholics not only bear on themselves but bring to others as well... A well written story... Felt like I was there with you...

DCinAZ: A very touching story I'm sorry for the loss of your sister losing loved ones is never a easy thing and it never will be! I have no doubt in my mind that she was saying goodbye to you all.

Thankyou for sharing your story with us.

DC: What can I say?...First off, I'm sorry for your loss...What's really standing out to me though, is the delay in your travels... You said you feel that she wanted to go quietly, and I'm a person who believes that there are NO coincidents... The dummy in the truck was there for a reason... Had your trip not been delayed, you would have made it there in plenty of time...

Wow, other than that, I'm speechless ❤

DCinAZ - thanks to BJJ, I waited until I got home to read this one (thanks, BJJ!) I wouldn't have made it through it at work without tears.

Even though you couldn't get there in time, I'm glad your sister was able reach you and your daughters before she passed. ❤

Bless her heart. She was letting you know in her way, that she was about to go. I'm glad you recognized these little signs and figured out she was telling you goodbye. What a wonderful, heart-tugging story. I wish you and your family, and most of all, Sheila, peace, love and understanding. God bless!

I left out an important detail from this day. My middle daughter, Sarah, unfortunately, could not make the trip with us and stayed behind. She was alone at work with no one to relieve her. After work she had to meet her husband at band practice. On their way home that night, at midnight, the song on their radio in the truck was "Love Hurts". Sarah said she knew it was from Aunt Sheila and the tears started to fall. 😢

I'm sorry for your loss. I understand all too well about families that, for one reason or another, lose touch.
This was a very touching, and very sad story.
