My Nanny Died And I Saw Her In My Dreams

Posted on March 31, 2009

My Nanny had pancreatic cancer.  When we found out, I was so hurt.  She had been there for me and raised me. I loved her so much.  Everyday we saw her and you could tell she was getting worse.

We had Christmas with her and she was sick but she managed to have a good time and laughed along with us.  Christmas eve night I left to go to my boyfriend’s mamas house with him.  He asked me to marry him, and I said yes and I was just so excited. I called mama and Nanny!

Shortly after, probably around Jan 10th maybe, Nanny told mama and Connie (my moms friend) that she wished who ever was pregnant would hurry up and have the baby. Then she told them that “Erica is Pregnant, you just mark my word.”  My mama said that I wasn’t pregnant and there is no way that I could be. She died Jan 19th 2009.  Everyone was with her when she passed, all three of her kids, friends and more family.

We heard the death rattle and not long after that she opened her eyes as if to say she loved us.  I laid in her bed where she died. I wanted her back so much!

Jan 21st about 2 in the morning I threw up. I felt a hand on my shoulder and I turned around thinking it was my boyfriend or mama and it wasn’t.  Nobody was standing there.  I expected my period around the 20th and I never got it.  I took a pregnancy test and it was positive!  I told my mama and she was happy and upset all at the same time! I’m only 16 and pregnant.

I had dreams about Nanny saying she came back to see me because her wings got too heavy for her to carry. Other dreams are about her seeing me and her leaving but she says she is coming back.  I’ve always asked her to give me a sign that’s she here with me and I see her face in the window or hear her cough, she was a smoker.  Mama would always cry and ask me why Nanny never came to see her, and I said you want to see her so much that’s why.

Around March 1st, we went to Ingles and we saw birds like you see at the beach.  Mama and Nanny would always feed them when we went to the beach or N.C. Pretty birds.

Before this we were in church and I asked Nanny to give mama a sign that she was with her and seeing those birds really was a sign because it was raining and icing, birds don’t just stand out there in the rain.  It was three birds. I really do believe that Nanny is coming back to show us that she is with us and she’ll never leave.

A week after my Nanny died, her mama died of the same exact thing. They never really got alone. What Nanny had, Pancreatic cancer that spread to her liver was not hereditary but yet her and her mama died from the same thing.

    Hi Erica, yes they do come in dreams. Both of my sons had a best friend named Steve. My older son was 31 and my younger 26. He had a lawn business and both of them worked for him. Of course they always used my house for breaks and lunch, and always hung out here. Actually all the guys who hung together hung out at our house. We knew him for at least 15 years. He was the one I was closest to. I always fussed at him if I knew he was doing things he shouldn’t. He was like a son to my husband and myself. Then he married and had a son but still hung around here alot because of his business, His house was in the next town. This is so hard writting this. My son had plenty of friends who would hang out here and through the years they have lost at least 8-10 friends to drugs. The first one was Dave. My son’s Best friend. After he died my son tried to commit suicide. Then they lost another , then another then a brother of another and so on. You would think these kids would learn from this but they all got more depressed, I’m sorry, back to Steve. He was having an argument with his wife so she went to her mother’s house. He took an overdose but then changed his mind. He got scared and kept trying to call her but she wouldn’t answer the phone. So he called a friend to call her but when they got to him it was too late. After We found out I had a dream that night and out of nowhere Steve walked up to me and gave me a big hug. Not a word was said But I knew it was goodbye. I will never forget that dream. Sorry for rambling so, But I really miss that kid. He was only 31 and his son was 4.

    sorry to hear about the loss of someone really special to you but its times likes this where we get to see the beauty of living because we know that we will all eventually die, and your story is not that eery or scary at all. it conveys how our loved ones would pass but still be happy in the next life. bless you and your family! =D
