A Beautiful Messenger

Location: N/A

By: Evelyn Kritenbrink

My mother died in the early morning on Christmas Eve 1999. She had suffer from a stroke two weeks prior and remained in a hospital until her death. Me and my sister would take shifts watching over her while she was in the hospital. That night she died it was my sisterís turn to come sit with her. Before my sister had arrived I was sitting in the chair and out of know where this most magnificent beautiful glowing blue eyed and whitish transparent body came to me. I was stunned and surprised, I had a warm and stable feeling come over me. I didnít understand why I got this image until shortly after my mothers death. I figured out that this awesome beautiful being was here to tell me my mother was going to die and that Angel was there to take her to a better and happier place, a place she needed to be.
