When I lived in Austin I woke up at 3AM and there was a strong smell of baby powder in my room. Since I lived alone, with no baby I immediately knew that what it meant, and within a few minutes of waking up, I heard sirens, which stopped over at my best friends house doors down the street. I found out some hours later that my best friends father suffered a heart attack in his sleep and died before the ambulance reached the house.
Another experience I want to share with you happened while I me and my husband were on our honeymoon, we had been saving for years and had enough to do both Rome and Paris for two weeks each, it was so beautiful, just like a dream. Then two weeks after returning from the honeymoon of our dreams, my life changed forever. My husband was working late at the office. I was getting ready for dinner, I went to our bedroom to change clothes, suddenly I felt a very strong smell of baby powder. And at this instant the phone rang and I answered. I was told that I had come to the hospital immediately since my husband had been involved in a car accident. I went to the hospital shaking and worried. I smelt the baby powder in the car all the way to the hospital, and when I arrived, I was told by the emergency room doctor, that my husband just passed away about two or three minutes before I arrived.
