Sometimes, passed over friends and relatives simply need to tell us something. Apparently, they sometimes use the phone to do this. One such example of this is the man who with friends drove to a major nearby city the night before his quadruple bypass surgery. They picked a motel and took rooms. As he unpacked a few items, the room phone rang and his friend picked it up. “It’s for you,” she told him looking shocked after all, no one knew they were staying at that Motel.
“Hello, is that you?” the voice asked.
“Yes,” he said.
“Don’t have your surgery tomorrow. It isn’t your time to die,” said the voice.
“Who is this?” he asked incredulously.
“It’s Jimbo,” said the voice.
The only person named Jimbo he could think of was a work colleague who had died a few years before. In the background of the call, he could hear lots of other voices. “Where are you?”
“In a place between Heaven and Earth,” said the voice and then there was a click as the line disconnected.
As you might imagine, he duly postponed his surgery.
