My grandpa said goodbye to my dad when he passed/u/notitymp

Obligatory english isn’t my first language, am on mobile sorry for format, yadda yadda preface.

To add some context, my dad isn’t a very big believer of the paranormal, not a huge skeptic but he tends to take things with a grain of salt, and looks for the logical explanation first and foremost. He’s a very straight to the point type of man, no time to add frill or useless details to things. And although he was on good terms with my grandpa, they were never really close since my dad doesn’t like social interactions and tends to isolate himself. Nevertheless, my grandpa always told me he was glad my mom had found my dad, since he knew he takes good care of her and loves her dearly.

On the 21st of December, my dad was standing at work while on break, he had a can of coke in his jacket’s inside pocket at chest level, and started feeling like something was constricting him a bit. Not in a “am about to be crushed to death” way, more so in a “bear hug” way. It only lasted a second or so, almost a “blink and you’ll miss it” moment, but as it happened, the coke that was in his jacket just randomly ended up bursting. He was only wearing a plain white t-shirt under his jacket, with nothing pointy or sharp that could’ve made the can burst on it, and has been putting his cans of coke in his chest pockets for years. This has never happened before. He works with my brothers, and they were both also very confused as to what could’ve caused that. He received a call from my mom who was crying on the phone about 10-15 minutes later, telling him my grandpa had just passed away.

My grandpa was an absolutely wonderful gem of a man, and I wouldn’t put it past him to do something like this, if anything it could’ve been to give my mom (who’s a very spiritual person) a physical sign that his passing wasn’t rushed, and that he got to say his goodbyes in a way? He passed at home in his sleep after suffering from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease for 7-8 years, so it really wasn’t a rushed or violent death.

I’m still not really sure what to think of it to be completely honest, I guess it could’ve been a really odd coincidence, but it just feels like it was a bit more than that to me.
