Columnist’s experience adds credibility to a phenomenon
Ms. Paula Parisot's testimony in her series of columns 'Signs of life—after death' confirms two identical experiences I've heard of in just the last few days! Before this, I had never even heard of this glowing-light-at-death phenomenon, so I'm taking it as credible proof of an afterlife.
The first time I heard about this phenomenon was from Marcy, a waitress at The Farmhouse restaurant in Lapeer. In brief, she had just returned from her mother-in-law's funeral, where four children of the deceased reported how they all saw this same kind of beautiful colored ball of light leave their mother's mouth as she died. None of the four were especially "religious," so it really built up their faith.
Secondly, the only reason I saw Ms Parisot's column was that I was in the De Angeli library looking for a Tri-City Times article about a friend of mine, choir director Jerry Pakkala. Of course I had to make a copy of Paula's column when I "happened" to come across it, since it confirmed what I had just heard from Marcy.
A few moments later, I had noticed that the woman next to me at a table at the restaurant. She was a stranger I'd never seen before, probably in her 60s, who was working from her Bible, so I thought she'd appreciate hearing about Paula's experience. But before I could get very far, she told me how she had been a volunteer at the old Lapeer hospice, and had seen this same phenomenon herself!
So I'm going to predict that you will hear from many readers with similar stories
Thank you so much for publishing Paula's story! People need to know that life goes on after death—before it's too late.
