NBR: Saying Goodbye..a little weird...

I'm going to start this off by saying I know this may sound hokey. And I know a lot of people don't believe in this stuff. I'm also not a religious person in the sense that I don't follow a specific religion but I do believe in something bigger than us. I believe there's more to be done once we've left this earth but I'm not about to even guess at what comes next or who's in charge or any of it because I just don't know. 
Here goes...

One of my husbands Great Uncles just passed away. He was 86 years old but you'd never know it. He was so full of life and personality. This February he ended up pretty sick. He's dealt with diabetes for quite some time and while he was outside shoveling (yes, shoveling snow at 86 years old!) he noticed his leg get really cold and numb and it just stayed that way. He had a few surgeries but was just never able to recover and spent the last two months in the hospital, slowly deteriorating.
Two nights ago he passed away. It was 9pm that night but the phone calls weren't sent out until the next morning so no one really knew until yesterday morning. Well, the night he passed I had the strangest dream. It almost felt like I was half awake half asleep but I knew I was dreaming. I was standing behind a guide rope like I was waiting for someone. In front of me was kind of like a foggy tunnel of light? I know that sounds really cliche but this was my dream. I almost felt like I was at an airport or a red carpet event. And then from the right side (as there were people shuffling along into the 'tunnel' from both left and right sides), I saw my husbands Uncle shuffling through with the rest of the people. I called out his name and waved. He turned, looked at me, gave a little wave like he would, and just kept going. He didn't seem scared, he didn't seem sad...he just seemed like he accepted what was happening...like it was the next step. I remember my heart felt heavy and light at the same time. I was selfishly sad but I was relieved for him at the same time.
I got the call the next morning that he had, in fact, passed the night before. 

Has this kind of thing happened to other people? I know how weird it sounds and very 'psychic friends network' but it happened. And I can't get it out of my head. I feel like I should be thankful I got to say goodbye but It's a little confusing. I don't know...I just don't know what to make of it.

  • That's crazy!  I haven't had dreams like that exactly, but I have had strange dreams where I see my grandmother or aunt, both of whom passed away.  But nothing like the timing you had!

  • Maybe it's the timing that's freaking me out. I knew he was sick for a couple of months but to have the dream the night he passed is a little bizarre.

    I've had other strange things happen in other instances surrounding both life and death events an

    I'm a weirdo like you and have had dreams right after or before people and pets have passed and before anyone knew.  the most vivid one happened when I was about 13, and I dreamed I was in a (very cliche also) bright white space.   You c

  • Take it as your psychic connection, whether it is or not.  The dream is almost all I have of DD...I love her so much and wish I could see her again, but I'll always have that one dream 2 nights after I delivered her.  I don't remember what we

  • I completely understand where you're coming from!!!!!
    This past October, we came home around 9pm from an out of town trip. My phone had died on the way home so I plugged it in in our dining room, just outside our bedroom. I laid down but then reali

  • I don't have an easy explanation for you but I do believe there are plenty of things that exist which are beyond our understanding. I explain such things religiously but since I'm not here to have a religious discussion I'll leave it at that. I would say

  • I think the validation from you ladies that I'm not absolutely out of my mind has helped! lol! It's a big weight. The dream itself made me feel at peace with things but all the human questions surrounding have added a bit of a weight to my shoulders.<b

  • That's very sweet. 

    I understand your "psychic" thought about it but I think that given that his passing was expected over the past two months, it's not actually that big of a coincidence to have this dream right as he passed. I still think
