Mccartney's Unintentional Dedication To Linda

SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY was shocked to learn of a hidden meaning behind his album title MEMORY ALMOST FULL - it is also an anagram in dedication to his late wife LINDA. The former Beatle was unaware the title to his latest album could be rearranged to spell out 'For my soulmate, LLM' (using her full name Linda Louise MCCartney), until he was alerted by his photographer daughter Mary. But MCCartney insists the anagram was not intentional. He says, "It was only when my eldest daughter said to me, 'Oh Dad, that's lovely.' I had no idea what she was talking about, until she explained. "I said: 'Oh my goodness, that's so weird', and she said: 'What's even weirder is that you didn't realise.' "I found out about it on the anniversary of her passing. Very weird." The singer's first wife Linda died in April 1998, aged 56, after losing her battle with breast cancer.

I bet Linda is around a lot more than he thinks. Wow what a beautiful story and attestment that real love never dies. I had a similar thing happen to me more times than I can count like Burgandy. A dear friend of mine passed away and his casket was covered in roses. I thought to myself everytime i smell roses i will think of him. Later when we went to his Mom's house I smelled roses and looked but not a one to be found. Everytime i go to her house I smell roses. No one else can. He always told me that if he went first he would try to contact me.

I Know for a fact that things like that can happen. Ive had things to be the same for me.I lost a brother to a very tragic accident june 28 2007 . A few days before that I had a bad dream of him he was talking to me face to face in a dream he seem to be trying to tell me something.It runs in my family my grand mother saw my mother floating down the stairs in a casket. She told my mother It was a warning for the abuse to drinking to much. After that my mother stopped never touched another drink.My mother had a boyfriend that she had a dream of him dead lying in a ditch . A few days later they found him in the way she dreamed he would be.My husband worked with a man .One morning in wee hours someone called his name & he woke . next day the man commited suicide strange.
