Response to OhNo-Really (Reply #39)

50. If you had not witnessed your

mother's transition, you might have had doubts.

There's the problem with sharing such experiences. Someone who has been through it recognizes what you're saying. But people who haven't simply cannot believe it. At best, they think you're a bit gullible, naive, or misinterpreting facts to fit a belief system. At worst, they just write you off as a nut case.

All I know is what I witnessed at the end of my mother's life and how my nephew acted when his brother died. I draw my own conclusions and let others draw theirs. It appears to me that there is something beyond us.

The older nephew is grown now, with grown children of his own - 3 daughters and one son. He gave his son the middle name of the brother he lost so many years earlier. He has another brother who was born a couple years after his first brother died. He doesn't talk about it, or at least I have not heard him do it. But when he was a kid, he got obsessed with magic tricks and shows for a few years. I think he was trying to convince himself that his mind played tricks on him that night, or that he remembered it wrong.
