HERE IN DETROIT, AT HER HOME, MRS. SOSNOWSKI SAID THAT
ONCE IN A GREAT WHILE A MORNING DOVE WILL SIT IN ONE
OF HER BACKYARD TREES. IT COMES FOR THREE SUCCESSIVE
DAYS THEN DOESN'T SHOW UP AGAIN. ABOUT TWO WEEKS
AFTER THAT, A MEMBER OF HER FAMILY DIES AND THEN TWO
MORE FOLLOW. SHE SAID THE SAME THING HAS HAPPENED
ABOUT THREE TIMES AND SHE KNOWS THAT WHEN SHE HEARS
THE SAD SOUND OF THE DOVE, SHE CAN EXPECT SOMEONE TO
DIE AND THEY DO.
