A description of the experience

Ernesto Bozzano - Psychic phenomena at the moment of death [110 cases suggesting survival after death]

Fifth category - Cases in which the dying family members are the only ones to perceive the ghosts of the deceased.

49th case. - I extract it from Light (1916, p. 301). Sir George Kelrewitch, the eminent professor of Greek-Latin classical literature, determines, in an interview, his way of thinking about the existence and survival of the soul, that is to say, that of a researcher without preconceived ideas, who waits to know more before reaching a definitive conclusion. At the same time, he says that he is particularly interested in the subject, as a result of some extraordinary experiences he and his friends have had. He recounts some of these experiences, the first of which occurred at his mother's deathbed. Here is the story:

My sister, who was in the room at the time of her death, came to me and said: "In the moment our mother breathed her last sigh, I saw a ghost with red hair floating over her. This is all the more inexplicable since our mother, as you know, had a special aversion to people with red hair."

I replied: "It is true that our mother had an aversion to people with red hair, but I should have told you that her younger sister, to whom she was passionately attached, had red hair. She died young, in the immense sorrow of our mother, so that if there was a person in the afterlife to whom she ardently desired to meet, it was her."

In my opinion, the conclusion to be drawn from this fact is that the dead sister came to see her to guide her into the afterlife. As we can see, Professor Kelrewitch is also irresistibly led to draw from the described events the following rational and spontaneous conclusions to which everyone arrives, provided that the person does not have the intellectual pathways obstructed by too long familiarity with the multiform varieties of the telepathico-hallucinatory hypothesis, which is so abused today.
