Our butterfly is free... now!

Our precious daughter of 30 died suddenly and unexpectedly in the early hours on Sep 21st. Her death certificate states that she was found dead at 7:00am Thursday (exact time of death could not be determined). Her husband, sisters, brother, father and I wake between 3:00 and 4:00AM every morning. Some of us cannot go back to sleep. No matter what time we retire at night, we wake up at this time.
We miss her dearly. Her death was a shock to us but all seem to be adjusting normally. Could this time of our waking signify the hour of her death?
If anyone has experienced this or has information that would be helpful, please let us know. Thank you so much!

What a heartbreaking loss, your dear daughter, your precious butterfly, now gone. I'm so very, very sorry. May your family members gain strength from each other to pass through this difficult time.

As for your question about the time of your waking possibly being the time of your daughter's death, no one really knows, but it is possible.

I wish you peace.

I am so sorry for your loss ((())

RE: Our butterfly is free... now!

First of all, I'm so sorry for your loss. I know what it feels like to lose someone you love more than anything. I know I'll never be the same and I keep everyone who suffers through grief close in my heart.

My 57 year old mother died in her sleep sometime after midnight on May 12th, 2005. Since she passed I've had one very realistic dream about her. I think of it as a "visit" but to each his own. Anyway, that's the only dream I remember vividly and when I woke in tears it was 3:20 a.m. I, still to this day, believe that that was the time she passed. Why? No logical reason but I feel it to my very core.

So, my answer to your question, is yes...that's probably the time she passed. I never did before, but now I truly belive things like this are signs from our loved ones.

Very sorry for your loss. I also think that the time may be related. My dad passed at 10:02, I still get short of breath around that time.
