For me the "loss" of my son November 4th 2000 was a rude, involuntary initiation into a secret society I became part of without my consent.
The culture I grew up in, the things I was taught to believe were polar opposite to what I was seeing and experiencing.
Since I have been on a quest to figure out what really happened.
Each person has to find there own way. Below are resources I hope will help on your journey.
There is a word for this. It's called Vilomah which is Sanskrit word, from the same language that gave us the word "widow," which means "empty." Sanskrit is one of the oldest languages in the world, sating back to about 400 BC.
Seeing is believing, but sometimes the most real things in the world are the things we can't see.

This handout was used in a speech at Toastmasters September 28th 2023 to "test the waters" It was titled "Where Does Inspiration Come From"
To provide a place to help others find resources, hope and comfort after the loss of a child or someone close.
To remove the stigma and mystery about death using known science and enough circumstantial evidence to see the truth.
Markus came into this world March 22, 1984 and transcended November 4, 2000.
Ever since his arrival in the physical on March 22, 1984 he has tested many beliefs on many levels.
Mark Anthony Howell Born October 18, 1959.
On November 3rd, 2000, my life changed forever when I got the phone call informing me that my son Markus had been in a serious car accident, and we needed to get to the hospital ASAP.
I was 41 years old and owned a successful business in general aviation. I am a licensed aircraft mechanic with inspection authorization by the FAA. I have ratings and certificates to operate multi engine aircraft in instrument conditions. I have worked in research and development for various projects in aviation and have also assisted in the investigations of several fatal aircraft accidents. Things must make sense to me on a scientific and practical level proven by facts and evidence.
I have spent a lot of time researching how any of the events following the phone call could make sense on any level. I still have questions however I have found a lot of scientific data and enough consistent circumstantial evidence to make the following observations.
Throughout history there have been some gifted people who have made attempts to share the truth with mankind. Some put to death, others threatened and tormented. This has been going on for thousands of years.
Socrates 470BC-399BC Put to death.
Galileo 1564-1642 Sentenced to house arrest. In February 1616, an Inquisitorial commission declared heliocentrism to be "foolish and absurd in philosophy, and formally heretical since it explicitly contradicts in many places the sense of Holy Scripture".
Jesus 4BC-30 or 33AD
Is it possible that us parents who have a child depart before us are given an opportunity to explore a fascinating though scary world where the real truth lies.
The only thing that makes it scary is that some will see and experience things that do not fit what we are taught to believe.
In my case Markus has been increasing the volume so to speak for years. I learned to keep quiet because I got tired of the ridicule etc. when I would share things I have seen and experienced.
However, on September 12, 2023 the rose he had drawn September 29th 2000 just 56 days before he transitioned arrived at my house as a beautiful sculpture created by Corey Stodola.
Corey is a guy I found in Georga who is welding aircraft towbars I designed a few years ago. I could not find a local welder to do them and found Corey through a guy in an aviation Facebook group. I have never met Corey and our conversations have been of a normal business nature.
At some point I put the original picture Markus drew in a Facebook album with no description etc. Corey saw it pass by and was inspired to turn it into a sculpture.
Considering the trail from Markus being inspired to draw the rose to Corey sculpturing it I feel I am blessed to have a tangible work of art and confirmation that Markus is here in another form.
I like others in this club have been tormented for the same reason Socrates, Galileo and others were put to death or kept quiet.
I have finally reached a point in my life where I know Markus is here in the pure energy or spirit realm. The more I accept and believe what I am seeing the more fun I am having.

Below are support groups and information where parents can find comfort and help on this crazy journey.
I wish I had been aware they were out there a long time ago. I am sure there are more.
This is what has come up since I started exploring how best to share the story of The Rose Bush.
Below are some resources I have found along the way.
The Life After Death Project is pretty good. It demystified a lot of things I have seen in the death process for years was explored in a methodical manner.
Skinwalker Ranch was purchased by Brandon Fugal in 2016. He is a devout Mormon.
There is a show about the investigation he is doing into some rather strange sightings and legends. I got a lot out of an interview he did where he discussed his beliefs vs what he is experiencing at the ranch.
Corey can make you a rose.
We can make you a Dual Ring Daddy 3 in 1 with the original rose laser engraved.
We can laser engrave most any file that is of a svg, png or dxf format.
