American Health: Mysticism Goes Mainstream by Father Andrew Greeley (January/February, 1987). Based upon a survey conducted by the National Opinion Research Council (NORC), Father Greeley reports, "Nearly half of American adults (42%) now believe they have been in contact with someone who has died." And that 67% of widows have had contact with their deceased husband.

This article, excerpted in The Orlando Sentinel on January 13, 1987, was given to us by Debra Davis, R.N., Hospice of Central Florida, who did not know of our interest in this subject.

One night, several weeks or months later, Carolyn was awakened when she felt someone sit on her bed at 2:00. She saw Anthony smiling and dressed in camouflage fatigues as he said to her, "Mom, I'm okay. I told you I'd be okay." before he left suddenly.


Bereavement Magazine: Matt's Butterfly by Bob Pano (May/June, 1994). After his 18-year-old son, Matt, died very suddenly of bacterial meningitis, Bob's daughter, Penny had a symbolic ADC with a monarch butterfly, which landed and stayed on her fingers for nearly half an hour. Later, Penny found a color photograph of a monarch which Matt had given her before he died and had handwritten his name on the back of it. These two experiences have helped this bereaved family enormously.


Bereavement Magazine: A Child of Wonder by Lynne Stylianou-Jensen (September, 1993). After her 2-year-old daughter, Caryn, died of cancer, Lynne and her family had a symbolic ADC. It involved a "special viewing" of the aurora borealis directly above their home in Golden Valley, Minnesota, and Lynne and her son, Chris, heard music too.

At the end of her article, Lynne quotes her friend and longtime hospice worker, Patty Chapman, "The dead always come back to tell their loved ones they are all right. They do it differently, depending on their own personalities, but it's always in a way that can't be mistaken."


Body, Mind & Spirit: First Contact by Bobby Mattingly (January/February, 1994). Bobby's brother, Gary, was shot and killed while he was in the Marine Corps.

A month later, Bobby was closing his store for the night when an armed robber demanded that he open the cash register. As he was planning to disarm the robber, he heard Gary's voice loudly and clearly shout, "Stop!" It was then Bobby noticed a second armed robber, an accomplice, was also in his store. This is an excellent example of an ADC for protection.

Guideposts: White Bird by Antoinette Bosco (September, 1996). After her son, Peter, died by suicide due to mental illness, Antoinette had a series of symbolic ADCs with cardinals that began on Easter Day. Because her grief was so intense, she wanted more proof and asked God to send her a white bird as a sign that her son was at peace. Though white birds are very rare in Connecticut, she saw one exactly a month after Peter's death. And a few weeks later her daughter and grandson, who live nearby, also apparently saw the same rare white bird.


Guideposts: This Christian family magazine is published monthly. A regular feature, His Mysterious Ways, in the January, 1996 issue contains a report from Patti Bohlman, who lives in Kingfisher, Oklahoma. One night in the winter of 1978, Patti heard her mother say, "Patti, get up!" This warned her of a fire in her two-bedroom trailer that eventually burned to the ground after she got out of it. Her mother had died in March of the previous year.

 A series of five articles titled, Reaching Beyond – Reassurance for the Here and After ran from November, 1988 through March, 1989. Two stories contain ADCs:

Maurice heard Andy call out, "Hey Buddy!" a phrase he often used while alive. Linda Gibb, Barry's wife, felt Andy's kiss and saw him smiling at her.


People: The Drama Behind Mask by Michelle Green and Dirk Mathison (March 18, 1985). Rocky Dennis was born with a very rare disease which distorted his face and caused his death at age 16. His story inspired the Peter Bogdanovich film, Mask, starring Cher and Eric Stoltz.

Reader's Digest: Lucky Penny by Irene Virag – condensed from Newsday – (November, 1988). Her grandmother taught her how to find "a lucky penny" when she was a little girl. The first one was at the cemetery where her grandfather was buried. She found her next penny six months later, on the day of her grandmother's funeral.

Now Irene usually finds "pennies from Grandma" when she's troubled or has an important decision to make. She's found thousands of them, and every time she does, she thinks of her grandmother – thus having a very long series of symbolic ADCs.


Reader's Digest: I Still See Him Everywhere by Richard Morsilli, with Jo Coudert (July, 1984). While walking near his home in Warwick, RI, Todd Morsilli, age 13, was hit and killed by a drunk driver – a 17-year-old girl who had been drinking since 10:00 am.

Todd's family had a symbolic ADC two days later when a fox came to their home, stood on their patio, and stared at their kitchen window before it slowly walked away. Later that day, they learned their son's name, Todd, means "fox."


Sharing & Healing: My Gift From God by Nancy Owens (April-June, 1994). Nancy's 16-year-old son, Chad, died by suicide. Two days after his death, Chad appeared to his mother in a sleep-state ADC saying, "Mom, I'm so happy and it's so beautiful here … Don't blame yourself and tell Dad not to blame himself."

The Orlando Sentinel: (March 18, 1995) A story from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer relates that well-known singer, Carly Simon, recorded a song she wrote, Like A River, as a tribute to her mother who died about a year earlier.

One night, Margaret awoke and saw her deceased father standing in her bedroom, twenty-two years after his death. He dictated a love letter to his beloved wife, who he alone had ever called "Tress," and his daughter wrote it down verbatim. Part of the letter reads: "I love you more as each day brings us closer together. Stay a while though, I'll wait forever … Happy birthday, Sweetheart."
