after we lost my son Zack and four weeks later lost my son in law Owen it was very hard on the 3 grandkids. they were only 8,5 and 2. the youngest is the only child that my daughter and son in law have together . Ian was just 2 weeks away from turning 2 years old. at his birthday party , he sat out side and looked at the tree in the front yard and told his mom that his uncle Zack was there and he wanted to go to grandma's house . after that he talked about my son and would sit on the top bunk and talk to his daddy and just laugh and play . he would ell his mom that his daddy was there . and that he was playing with him . she would ask where and he would point out in front of him and say there . there were times that he could sit for up to an hour and talk and play in there . he would tell us that uncle Zackie was there . at my son's services he was running around the church and came running up to the pew we sat in , sucked his belly in like someone had tickled him and said hi zackie . he was all smiles and had been running around making car noises which was one of the things they would play with on the floor together . my middle grandson came in the front room at my daughter's one day and ran up like he was going to hug someone and wanted to know why he couldn't hug his uncle Zack . he said he saw him standing in the front room . the kids still talk about seeing or hearing them once in awhile , not as often now as before . but it's been almost 2 1/2 years since we lost the boys. but on the day my husband had surgery last year , i could smell dirt so strong that it woke me up and my son used to go muddin' all the time and would come in smelling like dirt ( the earth) . i k new he was with my husband the day he had the surgery and felt calm and sure that he would be fine . even though his blood pressure was extremely low after the surgery . the nurses were concerned that i left for awhile and ran home to take care of our animals after he was settled in his room. they just didn't know he had his own guardian angel with him to watch over him while i was gone . there are things that happen like this from time to time at our houses even now.
