Could it be him trying to comfort me?

As most of you know, my Grandpa passed away Saturday. I went to his visitation and funeral and right now am not coping very well. I posted a journal about this. Anyway, I started listening to the song If You Could See Me Now as one of the ladies in my journal posting suggested and I started bawling. I immediately felt this weird cold chill throughout my entire body and got goosebumps but it felt comforting and I've stopped crying for the time being. I still have the goosbumps too. I wonder if it is my Grandpa? or if I'm just crazy. What do you think?

  • Could be both...

    Grief does some strange things, physiologically. Be gentle with yourself and rely on your beliefs about life, death and the afterlife to find comfort in now.

  • I'm so sorry for your loss. It's very possible that he did let you know that all is fine.

  • My condolences. If believing that helps you through your grief, by all means. I hope you find some peace.

    My physical reaction to stress/grief is much what you described. Mental/emotional shock often have the same physical affects as physical shock.
