LEBANON, TN (WSMV) -
When a loved one dies, it's only natural to wonder what comes next, but a Lebanon woman said after he husband died, she got something she never expected.
Faye Aldridge calls it undeniable proof of the afterlife.
When Aldridge's husband, Burke Aldridge, was in the final stages of cancer, he promised to send her a fax from heaven.
She assumed it was just the morphine talking, but you can imagine how shocked she was when just days after his death he apparently made good on that promise.
"I just believed against all odds that God would heal him," Faye Aldridge said. "Death is not the end."
She is a woman of strong faith. When Burke Aldridge was diagnosed with cancer in 2005, Faye Aldridge said she fully expected God to perform a miracle.
"I expressed my faith. I covered him in the word of God. I read the Bible to him every day," she said.
But just 21 days later, the 53-year-old man was dead, and the unthinkable began to unfold.
Within hours of being pronounced dead at the hospital, oncologist Dr. Carl Willis and neurosurgeon Dr. Arthur Cushman, two men who had never met, both swore Burke Aldridge paid them a visit at their homes before either of them even knew he was dead.
In both instances, Burke Aldridge's visit was brief and his message of peace and comfort was concise, the doctors said.
Shortly before his death, Burke had made a promise to reach out to his wife in a unique way from heaven. And within days of his death, the doctors gave their own accounts to Faye Aldridge via fax.
"I suppose he had a conversation with the Lord, and he wanted to do one finale, and maybe this was it," Faye Aldridge said. "Burke was a Christian, and I believe that gives proof, that if you're a Christian, you do end up in heaven."
