4. My Dad lost his power of speech about a week before he died. But he still communicated

I was teasing him about what I was going to cook to help him put on weight. He grabbed my hand and squeezed it with a strength I thought he had long lost. So I said "Ouch, Dad!! You're too strong!!". He raised my hand to his lips and kissed it, and then gave me a smile. As it turned out, it was his last smile, and it was for me.

I was with him when he died. It was a beautiful, warm day so I opened the window and described what I saw. I then suggested that he might want to 'go out and see the beautiful birds' by the pond. A few minutes later, I'm convinced that is exactly what his spirit did.

Shortly after I was taking a walk and a big white plume feather floated down, right in front of my face. I looked up and didn't see any birds. I think it was just Dad telling me he was OK.
