He writes that on the night she died, he saw an unexplainable white light over his California home.

He explains: “The night Tans died we were all sitting outside in the back garden of our Los Angeles home Greenleaf. It was around midnight, a still, overcast night, no moonlight.

“One by one people were heading inside to bed, and I told them I’d be in in a little while. I wanted to smoke and watch the darkness and be alone.

“I already knew that when you lose someone you can start to look for things, for signs, so I was on guard – I never believed in any of that stuff and I wasn’t about to start now.

“But that white light was there, and there was no denying it. It definitely wasn’t a star and it wasn’t a helicopter or a plane – it was too low.

“In my grief and desperation I said to the light: ‘Is that you, babe?'”

He says it would be ‘impossible’ to remarry

Then wanting proof that is was definitely her – he blew and ‘threw’ her a kiss.

And stunningly, the light seemed to react.

He continued: “I thought about all the times she’d say, ‘Where’s my kiss?” and I’d throw her one to catch. So that’s what I did, right there in that dark garden.

“Suddenly, the light swerved, and dipped, and hovered, and then it flew – zoom!”
