My father died almost 7 months ago now, he died in August of last year of a massive heart attack. It came as a complete shock to the entire family. He was rather overweight, because he ate lots of unhealthy foods and was an alcoholic, but he admitted this, he enjoyed it, he was sensible about it, he didn't let it affect relationships in anyway. but that doesn't matter. Like i said, he died of a heart attack in August '08. On the day of his funeral, we had a viewing of him lying in his coffin. I didn't smell anything, but my mum, who had been with my dad for 24 years, smelled this horrible smell, she said it was the smell of the embalmments used to preserve the skin and body from decomposition.
The thing is this smell has stuck with my mum, she seems to have been the only person who smelled it. The smell comes and goes at no apparent pattern. Until recently she just assumed it was just a smell stuck with her. My mum visited a friend who said that, the smell, was a of my dad letting my mum know that he was near her, close enough for her to smell him. When her friend told her this she realised that the only time's she's smelled it was in our house, where he lived. While driving by the place he died, and at his grave. So if it really is my dad making his presence known, it makes sense that his spirit lingers at the place he lived, died, and was buried.
And in the last few days I have had this feeling, of which i can call death. I really can't explain it. However last week I was speaking to my dad, my beliefs and such is not a topic of question, and i asked him to let me know that he was watching over us. I can't remember the exact day i spoke to him, but i know that the dead communicate within 3 days/weeks/months, as me and my mum attended a reading and my dad came through and said "happy birthday" to my mum. This was in October, and 3 months later, was my mums birthday in January.
The reason I'm posting this is to ask if anyone else has experienced this, or has any other information, or confirmation that this may be a way of the dead contacting the living??
any replies would greatly be appreciated
thank you x
Hi, I lost my Dad as well so I just wanted to say I'm so sorry for you're lost and yes you're Dad is still looking out for you Now as far as the smell I'm lost on that one because I'm new to the whold Paranormal thing and still a bit of a skeptic when it comes to ghost and such. I hope you find an answer to your question though. Good Luck
