Real Ghost Stories



June 9 2009

The sad day that it all sunk in and confused me.

June 8, I had an appointment to go to and while driving downtown, I saw Dan on the corner of the street waiting to pass to go to the library. He was looking straight ahead paid me no mind, probably didn't see me in my car. I thought that was good he was out and about I hadn't seen him in awhile.

June 9 I read online that he died. I couldn't believe it I choked back the tears. It read he passed away on Sunday June 7. How is that possible? I just saw him yesterday! I couldn't think through my tears. I had to sort it all out.

Two months earlier I had a bad day on a sunny day. I was driving in my car and I couldn't shake the feeling of death to someone I knew and it was a male. Dan never came to mind but I was certain it was a guy I was feeling. I couldn't shake it away.

Dan left this world on Sunday the 7 from a heart attack. Monday the 8 I saw him on the street corner downtown. Tuesday the 9 I learned he died. That hit me hard. I felt terrible I hadn't talked to him in months. And then he was gone. Maybe he came to say goodbye?

On Thursday a friend and I went to savers discount store. I saw a blue rosary so I told him to buy it. It's not typical to see rosaries donated. Friday the wake was near where I lived. I took my aunt with me and seeing Dan was my answer he'd visited me. In his folded hands was a blue rosary, identical to the one my friend got.

Not only did I cry tears of sadness but also tears of joy. He went to heaven but stopped by to tell me before he did.

My favorite story I wrote. Nothing eerie about it! This takes me back to when I wrote all these stories. This was my last one before I closed the mill.

This is such a sad encounter. It just breaks my heart that it still affects you so much. It's hard to lose those close friends, and so unexpectedly. I do believe he was saying his good byes to you that day, there's just no other reason for him to show up the way he did. Hold that memory in your heart forever, not everyone gets a last good bye like you received. That was very special.

Thanks, I'm ok with it nowadays. 😊 I re-read it after dreamergal sent me the link and I had a couple tears, I'm certain of my Uncles recent passing as well. And that's another story. But I read it again and your comments, and I had a hearty smile. Thank You. ❤

My condolences. It is hard losing a friend. Yes, he did care enough to appear one more time to you, in way to let you know something was going on. Obviously you received your answer. As for the blue rosary, a sign. You're right. To show he did go to our Father's home on high. I think your friend did that part to let you know he wasn't suffering. He is rejoicing.
