I'VE NEVER KNOWN THIS TO BE TRUE IN ANYONE ELSE'S FAMILY,
BUT THE SCOTT FAMILY. WE CALL IT "DEATH TOKENS."
IN MY LIFE THERE WERE THREE RINGS OF A BELL AND SOMEONE
DIED. ONE TIME 3 KEYS ON THE PIANO PLAYED WITHOUT ANYONE
SITTING THERE. AND THE LAST TIME THERE WERE 3 KNOCKS ON THE
BED AND SOMEONE DIED.
USUALLY THE PERSON WHO DOESN'T HEAR IT WILL BE THE ONE TO
DIE.
