It was 1995 my dad was very sick for about a year now. one night I went to sleep at about 11 or somewhere around there. My husband gets home around 11:30 P.M I was dreaming about it raing and storming outside all of the sudden I felt a big gust of wind fly past me and I woke up. I went out to the kitchen where my husband was and ask him if it was storming. He said no it wasn't storming. I said well i felt a big wind gust fly by me and it woke me up. I felt like something was wrong. A bad feeling about my dad suddenly came over me. I got in my car and drove to my mom and dads house to find my dad lying in his bed with my brothers and sisters all around him. He said something then died. about 10 seconds after he sat up looked at the cealing and a tear rolled down his face. then he layed back down again. It has been 11 years since his death and i still remember this story.
