Strange as is this story sounds it is true!
My mom passed away at the age of 51 after fighting a 15 year battle with lung cancer.
When mom passed I was devastated and so were my daughters. My then 11 year-old daughter loved to draw pictures, especially for her Nanu, so naturally she wanted to draw a special picture and send it to heaven so her gram would remember her.
Well she drew a pic of a beautiful gray dove and put it in the casket with mom to send to heaven. Mom passed 4 days after her birthday.
The following year on July 27th (mom's birthday) I'm standing at a gas station and this pigeon (or so I thought ) walks over to me and just stays there. I thought he was injured I gently scooped him up and took him to a vet. There I was told he was a mourning dove and I should release him back I nursed him back to health.
Well to make a long story short after nursing him I had fallen in love with him and that's when my daughter said mom that's Nanu - remember the pic!
We all burst into tears and well we kept him and have had ever since!Its been 9 years and his song is mom saying "hi."
