A description of the experience
From Death Bed Visions – Sir William Barrett
Louise F., aged forty-eight, died after an abdominal operation in January, 1896. During her illness, she frequently asked that, when cured she might take her little niece Lily, aged three years and three months, of whom she was very fond, to live with her in the country.
About a month after the death of her aunt little Lily, who was intelligent and precocious and in quite good health, often stopped in her play to look fixedly out of the window. Her mother asked her what she was looking at, and she answered, " It is Aunt Louise, who holds out her arms to me and calls me."
Her mother, much frightened, tried to distract her attention, but the child drew her chair to the window and continued to look for several minutes. Her brother, M. F., who gave me these details, said,
" I was then eleven years old and my little sister said, 'What ! Don't you see Tata ? ' as she called her aunt. Of course I could see nothing."
