“Hi Amelia.”June 9, 2011
Never told this to anyone.
Couple of years ago when my daughter was one year old, she used to sleep in our bed between the two of us. About 5:15 am I was awakened by a voice that I distinctly heard, “Hi Amelia.” I instantly sat up and whispered to myself, “I actually heard that.” Knowing that my grandmother was suffering terminal cancer, I wondered to myself if she had died that night. Sure enough, my mother called me at 8:00 am to tell me the news that she had passed a few hours earlier.
