Siam: Kenneth's Mother Died




On August 29, Kenneth wrote to his father about two letters he received from him mailed July 15 and 21, in which his father explained that he had lost all hope for his mother. Kenneth wrote assuming that his mother had already been dead for some time now. He had an extraordinary degree of extrasensory perception, and he did know at the moment his mother died. He was sitting unsually quiet, and Margaret asked him what was wrong. He responded that his mother had just died. It was in the day in Trang, and his mom died at night, half way round the globe.
