A CARDINAL EXPERIENCE
MY FATHER’S FLOCK
In Memory of Roman Vos
Butner, North Carolina
On May 15, 2016, my dear father passed away at four in the morning from Lung Cancer. During that morning, the hospice nurse was there and shortly afterwards he was transported to the funeral home for cremation.
Later in the afternoon, a flock of cardinals rested on a tree in the front of our home. They were there just momentarily, but of course their presence did not go unnoticed. There were several cardinals, just too many to count. I had never witnessed this before myself but heard others describe the very same thing. It was such a special and beautiful moment.
My father was quite the bird enthusiast, so I believe his memory was being honored by the cardinals or he was telling us through them that he was alright, and we should carry on as usual.
