eight months pregnant with Hank. His sister was sleeping late
and I thought that was weird. I was in bed when I heard the
windows in the front door rattle like someone had just come
in. I heard footsteps across the kitchen floor and down the
hall, and they came up to the post at the foot of my bed.
standing there looked like my husband. But then I noticed
that he was younger, had brown eyes and brown hair, but the
same features. It was then I realized it was not my husband.
As soon as I thought this, he turned and walked back down
the hall, across the kitchen and out the door, rattling the
window glass again.
up and checked the door and found that the chain was still
on it. I checked on the baby and she was still asleep. I called
my husband at work and asked if he had been home and he said
no. I started to look around the house, but there was no one
to the doctor's to get a sonogram. She said it was a girl.
But I told her it was a boy, that he would have brown hair
and brown eyes and would look just like my husband. Sure enough,
when he was born it was all true. After he was able to walk,
he would get up in the night and come to my bed post. I would
ask him if he was ok, and he would say yes, and I would put
him back to bed.
to come and stand at my bedpost up into his 20's. I was afraid
it was a sign that something was going to happen to him at
a young age. I was very careful, but after he turned 12, 14
and on up I became less worried. Then on July 10, 2008 he
was robbed, beaten and injured so badly that he was in the
CCU in a coma for eleven days. He died on July 21, 2008. He
was 27 and had 2 kids.
premonition that I always dreaded had come true.
