My belief is that God allows final communication between those of like frequency. As it pertains to realizing total love, joy and peace after the loss of a loved one, Tan’s story has similarities to what my aunt and I felt and heard when my mother pierced the veil of eternity.

Through sharing my experience with others, they too have shared their stories of visions, sound and experience after a loved one’s transition that they have been afraid to share due to the specter of ridicule. The common feeling described by all is joy.

Therefore, the “extended” awareness of our dearly departed is a final gift designed to free us from the shackles of a reductionist-materialist world.
