Warning from the other side

This was told to me by my coworker whom I will call Mary.
When Mary’s husband Dave was alive their son Steven was in a car accident. He was not injured seriously but because he did not have insurance Mary and her husband had to pay $5000.00 for the damage caused.
After that incident Steven got insurance and every month when the bill came Dave would ride Steven until he made the payment. Some time later Mary’s husband died of cancer.
When Steven’s next car insurance bill arrived Mary said to Steven, “make sure you pay that bill”. Steven shrugged and kinda just said “yeah, yeah, I will”. Just then they heard a noise in the other room. Upon investigation, Mary noticed that one of her suncatchers which was attached to a window with a suction cup had fallen and broken. She cleaned it up and didnt think any more of it.
The following week she noticed that the insurance bill was still laying on the counter so when Steven came home she again said, “Steven you really need to pay that bill!”. Once again Steven kinda shrugged her off. Next thing they knew…down came another suncatcher shattering on the floor. Now Mary started feeling somewhat suspicious.
A few days later she noticed that the bill was STILL sitting on the counter. Mary picked up the bill, walked into the living room and sat on the couch. Aloud she said, “Well Dave, should I call Steven at work and bug him about paying this bill?”. Wouldn’t ya know, the third suncatcher falls to the floor and shatters. “Okay Dave”, she said, “I’ll call him right now!”.
Mary has one suncatcher left so hopefully her son will be more diligent about paying his bills!!!!! She speaks of this as if it is completely natural and does not doubt that her husband is still watching over them;}
