Thanks so much for your reply.
Until my first husband died, 3 yrs ago...I was not truly a believer in an afterlife of any kind. But when he was dying, he said that he would send me a sign to let me know that he was okay...and he has sent me many of them, and continues to send them to me.
The first one occurred at his burial....
Just as the casket was being lowered into the ground, a big beautiful Tiger Swallowtail butterfly flew up out of the grave and brushed against my cheek.
Butterflies, never go under the ground, and that also had been a year when they sprayed for Gypsy moths...and we had therefore not seen any butterflies.
Everyone who saw it was quite astounded!
To this day, even though I am re-married to a wonderful man...I still feel his presence and he still communicates with me.
