IN OCTOBER OF 1976 I WAS HOSPITALIZED AND HAD TO UNDERGO SURGERY.
I WAS IN THE HOSPITAL FOR TWO WEEKS. WHILE I WAS THERE I KEPT
HAVING A RECURRING DREAM. IN THE DREAM MY MOTHER DIED. THE DREAM
WAS VERY DETAILED I SAW MY MOTHER DIE AND THEN I SAW HER FUNERAL.
BECAUSE OF THE DREAM AND MY SURGERY I WAS VERY UPSET SO MY HUSBAND
SENT ME TO MICHIGAN TO VISIT MY MOTHER. THE NIGHT BEFORE I WAS TO
LEAVE MY MOTHER'S AND RETURN HOME SHE HAD A HEART ATTACK AND DIED.
HER DEATH OCCURED EXACTLY AS IT HAD IN MY DREAM. THE FUNERAL WAS
ALSO AN EXACT ENACTMENT OF MY DREAM EVEN DOWN TO THE CASKET WHICH
MY FATHER PICKED OUT BEFORE I EVER SAW IT. I BELIEVE MY DREAMS
WERE MY MOTHER'S WARNING TO ME ABOUT HER DEATH.
