My mother’s experience with my ill grandmother/u/Sheed51

My grandmother (my moms mother) recently passed away about two weeks ago. It was a very hard time for my family and my mother. She was the very last grandparent i had, as my other grandparents passed away years ago. Additionally, in April of 2021, I lost 2 uncles within 5 weeks of each other (both my mothers brothers). One was expected and the other was not. So its been a rough couple of years for my poor mother. Shes slowly healing, but I am sure it still hurts her. She was over at my house last night and was telling me about traveling back home (she had to fly over seas for the funeral) and about how it was nice being with her family and just laughing and crying together. She had made it back home one day before my grandmother passed and got to see her one last time.

My mom told me some interesting stuff that happened while she was back home with my grandma. The first thing happened after my grandma was hospitalized (she had been taken to the hospital at some point before my mom got there). Mom said while the family was visiting her, my grandmada, who was 97 years old at the time and mostly blind, said she could see her husband (my deceased grandpa) and my 2 uncles that had passed away, all standing in the room waiting for her. My mom and aunts and uncles were asking her what she is talking about, and told her there was no one here. I have heard about people seeing loved ones right before dying so i thought that was really interesting.

Not much after that my grandma passed and they had the funeral for her. Almost the whole town came to my grandmas funeral, as funerals are a big deal back home. My mom of course was devastated but it was expected after all. That night, mom told me she had a dream that she was with a bunch of deceased cousins and family, as well as some living ones. My mom said she looked at her deceased relatives and said “what are you guys doing here?”. She said one of her cousins then said “we’re just waiting for your mom!”. Mom said at that point one her cousins, who is alive, came up to her and gifted her with two boxes of sweets. He said “one is for you and one is for sister. We are sorry for your loss”. Mom said after that she woke up.

The next day, my mom said she went to my grandmas house to clean out some things with my aunt. Mom said they had a ton of visitors and people coming by to pay their respects. At one point, my mom said her cousin from the dream came to see her. He had brought two boxes of sweets with him. He gave one to my mom and one to my aunt, and obviously my mom was shocked. She told him about the dream and they all kind of laughed together and discussed it. My mom kept repeating to me how shocked she was at that moment when the same scenario from the dream happened.

I asked my mom, who is 56, about what she thought about grandma seeing the dead relatives and what this all means (the dream included). She said “I really dont know but it has to be something good”. I told her I agreed.

In my opinion, there is something very comforting about knowing you could get to see all of your loved ones again when you die, and that they almost “welcome” you home as you pass away. This tells me there just has to be something better waiting for us after this life. I just know it. Thank you for reading.
