on june 19 1993 4 days before our 4th wedding anniversary my husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer. i was numb, being in nursing i knew what to expect. my ken was a fighter, the doctors gave him 30 days to live. he surprised everyone and lived 5 month's. he always said he was going to fight for me. about 4 weeks before he died i heard him talking to someone as he lay on the sofa, when i asked him who he was talking to he said no-one. as his condition worsened he was admitted to the hospital. on wed. the24 of nov. i went to get him some choclate milk which he craved. as i walked into his room a woman who i thought was a nurse walked by me. i stopped in the doorway and my husbands arms were reaching out. i asked him who he was reaching for, he said that was his angle wasn't she beautiful. i turned to see where she went , there was no one anywhere around. since i was in the doorway i would have seen her. he said wasn't she beautiful, i said yes she was. then something occured to me. that woman i thought was a nurse had on a long flowing gown, and she seemed to float. he then told me she was taking him home in two days. 2 days later i lost my soul mate. since that day i have collected angels. i am a private duty home health aide. my last six patients were terminal. on every vist to them i would always see an angel before the patient passed. i have always felt privileged to have witnessed this beautiful scene. they bring you peace, and help you to prepare. God has blessed me that i can see his beautiful angels.
