A further story from my clippings about people who have experienced encounters with those who have died.
"I think visions are caused by the grief of losing a loved one.
After my mother passed away, I saw a light appear, which came closer and closer and got much brighter. Then her face appeared, surrounded by a dazzling light.
It was all very clear. She was just looking at me; then it started to fade before disappearing. It lasted about 15 seconds and I was obviously very shocked. I am not a religious person.
My mother experienced the same thing when her father passed away, which did make me feel better about it. She never told anyone else about that except me."
