Story of a Last Goodbye
Kelly Arnold’s family celebrated her birthday. The following night her mother was hit and killed by a drunk driver. Kelly felt as if a piece of her own life was taken away that night too. She struggled to come to grips with the loss. Loved ones, friends and acquaintances were calling her to give their condolences. She was nice to everyone who called but secretly she wanted to scream and be left alone.
Kelly spent the whole night of her mother’s funeral crying into her pillow. She was awakened around four am by a strange cold feeling. She could smell her mother’s distinctive perfume. It was a strong and familiar scent. An odd light formed from nowhere in the middle of the bedroom and it started to grow larger. The light grew until it was the size of a doorframe.
Kelly’s eyes focused on the bright light. She saw someone moving within it. A person was emerging from the light. Suddenly standing before Kelly was her mother’s glimmering apparition. Kelly immediately broke down and started to cry for joy. She was happy and frightened. Her mother looked fantastic. Her hair, face, skin and smile looked perfect. It was a wonderful feeling to see her. It was hard to describe but she seemed to be wearing a dress made out of light particles.
The apparition did not speak, but her appearance was like a long conversation. Kelly smiled back at her mother and wiped the tears away from her eyes. She was filled with joy. Her mother was fine and seemed to be in a happier place. The vision faded away slowly until she was gone and the room was dark again. Kelly got out of bed and went on with her life. She felt blessed to have seen her mother one last time and believes that they will both be together again in the afterlife.
