Goodbye Grandma

Mark, NSW, Australia
February 2006

On Jan 06 2006 my dear Grandmother passed away from illness. She was 90 years old and had been close to me from when I was growing up for at least the last 30 years.
I'm now 38 years old.

We travelled to Taree, 4 hours north of Sydney, to be at her funeral where we stayed in a Motel the evening before.

On the morning of her funeral my wife told me she had seen Grandma the night before standing above our bed from the waist up. I wondered???

Her funeral was held in Taree, NSW, Jan 09 where I said my last goodbyes alone by her coffin/grave.

Our family returned home that evening and were still in sorrow and grief. At approx 9.40pm we heard a noise in the kitchen of dishes/knives rattling and a split second later a small kitchen knife mysteriously flew out of the sink (which we clearly heard but didn't see) and landed 6 feet away next to the fridge. My wife went and picked it up. I froze and said "Hi Grandma".
Within 30 seconds I had an incredible sensation of pins & needles and the honest feelings of something passing through my body and taking my breath away, freezing my body and giving me sweaty hands. I was sitting in the exact place where we spoke regularly on the telephone to her.
I jumped up and went outside to try and rid myself of this sensation. I was freaking out!! I went back inside after calming down a little, but still having a weird sensation; so I went to bed and it came back again, stronger, probably lasting 1 minute or so each time.
I began to panic and my wife tried to relax me to no avail. I eventually calmed down but was still in shock and unable to sleep.

Now 4 days later I am in fear of the night and have prayed it won't return.

We are definitely going to a higher place upon death without a doubt...Any comments or reason would be great...
