At her fathers wake, the woman told her priest that ever since she was a child, she and her father had discussed life after death.
They agreed that whoever went first would try to contact the other. They had discussed it again only two weeks before his death.
He died in her home, and a few hours later, the smoke alarm in the garage went off.
She had lived there 28 years and it had never gone off before. She didn't know how to stop it and had to call the security company that had installed it.
The next morning, the smoke alarm sounded again and the reason finally dawns on her.
She said aloud, "OK, Dad, I missed the signal yesterday, but I've got it now. Thanks for letting me know your safe on the other side. Now turn the darn thing off so I don't have to call the security company again."
And it went off.
His response: "Dear, if every time your father sends a message, he sets off the SMOKE alarm, just where do you think he's calling from?"
"As an OK State Trooper once told me, "Why shouldn't a "good" citizen be allowed to carry a gun, all the "bad" guys already do.""
