Background

A description of the experience

Death and its Mystery – After Death – Camille Flammarian

The story was told her by her charwoman.

One midsummer day, about three or four o'clock in the afternoon, this woman was sewing. She states that she saw her father, who had been dead for about a year, pass before her. He went into an adjoining room, where the store of wood for the winter was kept. She ran after him. Although she knew he was dead, she was so sure of having seen him that she looked into the little room into which he had gone, but saw no one there. She was not thinking of her father at the moment of this apparition, and affirmed positively that she had seen him as distinctly as one sees a person of flesh and blood, when that person stands before one. She even remembers that he carried a cane in his hand, and. had on a brown suit.
