Nanny had an NDE in 1952 in which she communicated with angels that took the form of white doves. She heard a choir singing and saw they were wearing white robes. She wanted to know if she was going to get a robe and get to sing in that choir. The answer was "not yet." The angel doves sent Nanny back to her body to finish raising her children who were sill young at the time. She has been waiting for her robe ever since then.
I thought I was just imagining the combination of smells, but this was so unique to my grandmother, I knew her spirit was trying to communicate with me. Her body is still alive (barely) and her spirit is traveling just like her son did, and her daughter. My uncle came to me less than a week before he passed in 2001 to let me know what songs he wanted at his funeral. (Being a church pianist for 25 years, it is my honor to play for the memorials of my family members.) He lets me know he is around by bringing the smell of cigarettes. He smoked for as long as I can remember. My uncle has been around this past week as well. My aunt told me in person before she died that she would let me know she was trying to communicate with me by giving the image of a cameo or silhouette. I've seen that appear in physical form a few times and received messages from her since her passing in 2009.
I walked out on the porch and the smells of my Nanny followed me. I asked her what I could do for her. She reminded me that she wants me to play piano and sing at her funeral. I reaffirmed that I would. I asked her if the angel doves had her robe ready. She said it's almost time. She does not want us not to cry for her too much. I promised her that our tears would be tears of gratitude for who she is and how she has blessed us all so much.
