I never had signs from either of my parents, and if there were any from my first mate they were expressed in attempts to make me miserable. I'm not smart enough to know the ins and outs of why things happen the way they do.

I would indeed feel badly. So I do get your concern OP.

It wasn't til year two that I could see the light from the depth of sorrow. Afterwhich the signs were quite subtle. There were no ghostly apparitions....or echoing voices....But signs none the less...if I remained attentive.

I recall a scene from "Beaches"...where the one character solemnly says...Humph....I have my Moms hands...and quickly started urgently looking for pictures of her Moms hands.....

I sometimes will be writing and notice that my hands too, look very much how my moms did....I am apart of her...and she is with me...That is my sign ...and comfort some days.....

Just a few days ago I was in my office when I clearly but oh so quietly and gently heard my wife call to me from the living room where she spent most of her last two years in her recliner due to severe pain. I got up from my desk and went out half hoping to see her there but had to be and was content for having just heard her voice once again.

As you so correctly pointed out, you have to be open to it.
