Some people who lost loved ones to Covid report messages from beyond the grave. These stories are part of a historical pattern.

Some people say they've been contacted in recent months -- via visions, voices and symbols -- by a loved one who died from coronavirus. These encounters that may sound implausible, but they're in fact part of a historical pattern.

Updated 0807 GMT (1607 HKT) June 20, 2021 (CNN)They never ran out of things to talk about. It was obvious from the start.He was a brawny former Maine lobsterman with a booming baritone. She was a redhead with freckles from Wisconsin who worked in corporate recruiting. They talked about everything from sci-fi movies and her love for the rock group Bon Jovi to whether the Lord of the Rings film trilogy did justice to J.R.R. Tolkien's books. He asked for permission to kiss her on their first date. She said yes.When Ian and Michelle Horne got married, he wore a purple tie on their wedding day because it was her favorite color. As the years rolled by, they got matching tattoos and gave each other nicknames from the movie,"The Princess Bride." He called her Princess Buttercup and she called him"Farm Boy Wesley." They made plans to visit Ireland this year to celebrate her Irish roots. Then came the pandemic. Last fall, after a long battle, Michelle Horne died from complications caused by Covid-19. Ian Horne's"superpower," as he called her, was gone. They had been married almost 10 years. But not long after his wife's death, the morning radio deejay in Wichita, Kansas, wondered if Michelle was still speaking to him. He was driving to his job in the predawn darkness when he spotted something odd. About two dozen streetlights flanking the highway had turned purple. They looked like a lavender string of pearls glowing in the night sky. Michelle and Ian Horne. The couple were married almost 10 years.Read MoreHorne took it as a sign."Michelle knew that was my route to work that I take every morning and was the route she took on her final drive to the hospital," says Horne, who hosts his morning show on 101.3 KFDI as"JJ Hayes.""I remember simply smiling and feeling overwhelmed with the idea that Michelle was close." .pg.t-light .zn-body-text h3 { text-align: center; font-weight: 900; } @media screen and (min-width: 640px) { .zn-body-text h3:not(.el__headline):not(.cd__headline):before { margin: 60px auto 10px; } } Reported encounters with departed loved ones are not uncommonThe coronavirus pandemic has now killed more than 600,000 Americans. Many of us never had a chance to hug or say farewell to loved ones who died alone and isolated in hospital wards due to fears of spreading the virus. But there is another group of pandemic survivors who say they have been granted a second chance to say goodbye. They are people like Horne who believe they've been contacted by a loved one who died from coronavirus.These experiences can be subtle: relatives appearing in hyper-real dreams, a sudden whiff of fragrance worn by a departed loved one, or unusual behavior by animals. Other encounters are more dramatic: feeling a touch on your shoulder at night, hearing a sudden warning from a loved one, or seeing the full-bodied form of a recently departed relative appear at the foot of your bed. These stories may sound implausible, but they are in fact part of a historical pattern. There is something in us -- or in our lost loved ones -- that won't accept not being able to say goodbye.And whenever there is a massive tragedy such as a pandemic, a war or a natural disaster, there is a corresponding surge in reports of people seeing the dead or trying to contact them.After mass tragedies such as wars many Americans have turned to Ouija boards in an attempt to contact departed loved ones.The 1918 influenza epidemic sparked a"spiritualism craze" as Americans turned to seances and Ouija boards to contact departed loved ones. After the 9/11 terrorist attacks came a wave of people reporting sightings of and even conversations with those who had been snatched from their lives. When a tsunami struck Japan in 2011, killing at least 20,000 people, so many inhabitants of Ishinomaki reported seeing their loved ones appear that a book and a documentary were made about this city of wandering ghosts. "These kind of reports are normal in my world," says Scott Janssen, an author who has worked in the hospice field for years and studies these experiences."It would make sense that in a pandemic or other event that leads to mass deaths that there will be a numerical increase in reports and experiences, given the shared grief and trauma."Read more from John Blake:

The first law of thermodynamics states that energy can neither be created nor destroyed; energy can only be transferred or changed from one form to another. Who can say what happens to the life energy of a human being after the body dies. It’s human nature to make things up, when we are in pain and unwilling to accept the facts of life. It’s all imaginary, but harmless if it brings closure or comfort.

Ya. Mine said trump won. If I ever wake up to a dead relative standing at the foot of my bed I will have a heart attack and join them. And even the dead will hear the voice of god and the graves shall be opened. This is stupid😂😂😂😂😂 Have they been vaccinated? Maybe they have a magnetic connection. 🤍 Hahahaha so now COVID is turning people into ghosts. Maybe that should be listed as a symptom. I can’t believe this is coming from CNN

Father of 8 was set to get 2nd vaccine dose, but contracted COVID-19 and diedAmong those is the Ballard family in North Carolina, grappling with the loss of their patriarch. Gordon Ballard, a devoted husband and father of eight who pushed through a lifelong illness to provide for his family, died of COVID-19 on May 17, 2021, his daughter said. The 65-year-old tested positive two weeks earlier, on May 3 -- the same day he was set to get his second vaccine dose. Sounds like a bone marrow transplant might be in order. I never got my bachelor’s degree. I don't understand why people most vulnerable to the virus weren't immediately vaccinated before anybody else. May the creator give your family the strength to get through this most difficult times. May others share this information. The only way to combat any virus is a diet that builds your immune system. Shots do not do this.
