An Old Friend


This actual happened to a friend of my great grandmother. I know it's all true because everyone in my family is very honest and does not lie. Enjoy the TRUE story! Well he went to the very south of Chile. To do that, he had to take a bus to another city, then take a plane. When he just got off the bus, he met an old friend that he had not seen in several years.

It was years since they talked, so they chatted a while. My great grandmother's friend looked at his watch and saw that his plane was going to leave soon. He told his friend but his friend held him back and kept on talking. He ended up losing this plane. My grandmother's friend said "I'd go home and get another flight later".

He said goodbye to his friend and took another bus back home. Some time later, he learned that the flight that he was supposed go on crashed, killing all its passengers. He wanted to thank his friend for keeping him from taking that flight. Then he mentioned the story to another friend who looked at him surprised and responded, "That can't not be true *** (I completely forgot the name!) died a few years ago..."

He kept on wondering how did this happen? He asked all his friends, all replied the same...

So wait, this guy bought a plane and train ticket to southern Chile to see a friend he hadn't seen in years, but that everyone ELSE knew was dead? And THEN upon his return, he learned he went on vacation with a dead guy?

Um, no. But thanks anyway...

HI thanks for sharing your story. I think our close friends and family relatives who have passed away they can give us dreams and warn us about things. I would say his friend saved his life. I guess his friend who died returned and hadn't spoke to him in ages and wanted to talk and also wanted to change his future in a way. I enjoyed reading this story. I do believe you and I don't lie either. 😊 I also think it's very nice of him doing that.
