Death and its Mystery – After Death – Camille Flammarian
A grandmother was seen by her two granddaughters; each saw her separately, and there was no communication between them. This woman had preserved a noble beauty up to the advanced age of eighty-eight, the year of her death. She had an old clock, of which she was very fond. It had been a wedding present, and she was in the habit of saying that this companion of many years was connected with all her impressions-with her husband's absences, with her children's return from school, with the hour of waking, et cetera. Let us listen to the account. One of her granddaughters, Madame Judd, writes:
August 6, 1885. One morning in October, three weeks after her death, I saw my grandmother distinctly-her face, as always, calm, and her big eyes looking at the old clock as usual. I closed my eyes for some seconds, then opened them again, and still saw her.
I closed my eyes a second time, but when I opened them she was no longer there. Since my family sometimes called me a dreamer, I took care not to breathe a word about this vision.
On the following evening my sister, who is not at all dreamy, but most practical, told me in confidence, before we got into bed (her bed was beside mine):
“If you'll promise not to make fun of me, I've something to tell you."
"Well, I saw my grandmother this morning."
The details which she then gave me were in entire accord with what I had seen myself.
