passed away after a quick bout with cancer. She needed 24-hour
care after her chemo because she was older and the chemo did
a number on her. So we had to put her in a rehabilitation
center. I promised I was going to take her out but I never
got the chance. She was only in the home for three days before
a Friday night and I went over right after work to visit.
When I got there, she hadn't eaten and she looked a mess so
I told her we were going to get her fixed up. I picked out
a very soft white night gown for her to wear. I washed her
up and brushed her hair, thinking how beautiful it looked
and what a shame it would be when she started to lose it from
the treatment. She was very sleepy due to her medication but
I wanted her to get a little fresh air. So I opened the window
to her room and sat her in a chair.
Right outside her window was a wild bunny facing her window.
I showed it to her and told her to look at the beautiful bunny.
She just smiled. I then tucked her into bed, gave her a kiss
and told her I loved her. She said, "Thanks for everything
you have done for me." I said, "Of course. You don't
have to thank me. Call me if you need me."
she passed away that night. The next morning I ran to her
room and it was obvious that they had tried to resuscitate
her because things where thrown around and her bed was stripped.
I happened to look out the window and the bunny was there,
but facing the opposite direction. I took that as my sign
son's first high school football game I was feeling really
sad that she wouldn't be there. I was standing with a group
of people, and there were bushes behind us. Well, I realized
she was there when a little bunny came running out of the
brush and hopped over my foot!
gotten many more signs involving bunnies since her death.
