Howard Any Time Now

Dreamed before 1961 by Alice, reported to the Rhine Institute

Five years before, [Alice's] father had died while visiting a relative, Howard, to whom he had been much attached. One night she dreamed that the telephone rang and that she jumped out of bed to answer it. She says:
A voice I instantly recognized as Father's said, "Hello, is that you, Alice?"

"Yes, Father! Where are you?"

In a voice so happy and light, he answered, "Here. I called to tell you we are looking for Howard at any time now. We will be glad to see him but sorry for the ones he left there."

Then changing, he said, "How are Billie and Jane?" (My two children.) The connection was broken, but I woke up and was very much disturbed. It seemed it couldn't be a dream.

So I wrote and told my brother about it, and as he and his wife were reading my letter they got a phone call telling them that Howard had just passed away at a Pittsburgh hospital. I hadn't known he was sick.
