Old Guardian Angel, Perhaps?

Thirty years ago when I was six years old, my father took me to a doctor's surgery one summer's evening because I had a serious middle ear infection. The surgery was an old, large converted victorian house.
On leaving the doctor's room, whilst standing in the hallway, my father picked me up and sat me on his shoulders. I could then see shafts of evening sunlight through a pane of glass above a closed wooden door.
I looked through this high-up window wherupon I saw an elderly lady with a white hair and dressed in a full white lab coat, with a pen in her pocket smile at me whilst levitating slowy and serenely down a set of stairs. All my life this has been in the very back of my mind and I can remember it quite vividly to this day.
At the time I was perhaps temporarily prone to hallucinations due to the strong medication I was on. I am also very skeptical of the paranormal, so perhaps the medication really was the explanation for seeing this. Later that evening, I asked my father how an old woman could float down the stairs. He laughed and told me it was not possible.
Last year, my father died of cancer. The very same old doctors surgery building had since been converted into a Funeral Director's business. Perhaps as fate would have it, the very room which previously served as the doctors surgery was the room where my deceased father lay in an open coffin.
On arriving there to say my last goodbyes, I was instantly reminded of this vision from thirty years ago and had a huge sense of overwhelming deja vu, which of course I kept completely to myself. But I somehow felt that a guardian angel was watching over me at this difficult time in my life.
Interesting story, even though I don't actually believe in paranormal phenomena!
