My brother-in-law came from a large family. He basically took care of his mother and the other kids once his father became old and, he did a very good job at it.
His mom passed on when she was 84 years old and up until the very end she was very active and and of sound mind. I knew his mother and she was a very sweet lady. I never saw my brother-in-law grieve. One night while he and I were driving down the road he told me his story.
He told me that sometimes when he walks past the mirror in the up stairs hallway, His mother appears to him in the mirror. As i stated in the beginning of this article, I simply thought it was his way of grieving over the loss of his mother. I listened to his story and I told him it was all because he missed her and, that in time he wouldn't see her in the mirror.
Then one afternoon I was at his house and I went upstairs to use the bathroom.
I was not even thinking about what he told me a month earlier but, when I came out of the bathroom and walked back down the hallway to the stairs, I passed the mirror and I saw his mother for just maybe two seconds in the mirror and then she just faded away. I didn't say anything to him about it but, about an hour later his sister came home and went up stairs and we heard her scream. he and I ran up the stairs just in time to see his mother smile and then fade away into the mirror again.
He hugged his sister and told her not to be upset because it was just mom making sure we are all OK. The three of us talked about it for a while and then it was never brought up again except for once in a while he would smile and just say. I saw Mom today.
