I just remembered this incident. Those who has read "Here When I'm Needed" is familiar with my late ex Derek. This is another one his little happenings. Derek passed away on a very dark winding road. The road has 2 lanes and is surrounded by trees. During the day it's very peaceful to drive down, but at night time it is extremely dark. On a nice night you will have the moon as a night light. It must have been a few days after his passing. I can't remember if this was before or after his burial, I actually think it may have been the day of. This happened in 2008.
I am very close with his family and friends. His mother gave me full charge of his entire funeral service, where he was to be buried, what clothes, tombstone, everything. She said I knew him best and he would be happy with whatever I chose. This has got to be one of the biggest gifts anyone could have given me. Not only did I want to, but also the fact that his mother could trust me with something so big, I could never thank her enough.
It was about 9 P.M. And I'm sitting at Tim Horton's with his best friend (Jonas). This Timmie's was 5 minutes away from his crash site (I called it "the site"). Something you should understand is during these times, I was always either at the site or the graveyard. Jonas and I were just sitting together, barely talking, when Derek's cousin called me saying that they were at the site but their car won't start. His cousin was saying "You gotta come here, I think it's Derek, I don't he wants us to leave!"- this cousin was a bit scared of ghosts so I know he meant it. Considering how much Jonas and I missed Derek and being only 5 minutes away, we headed to the site right away. So we got there, and there they were about 4 or 5 of them in a van, parked on the side of this scary dark road. We parked behind them and got out to see what's going on. Derek's cousin immediately told me that his car was fine until they stopped here. He said the lights work but can't start the car. Nobody was really in a panic because realistically we knew we could just tow him out or boost him. So instead of trying to help him right away, we all just got out of the cars and stood around and looked at the post that took Derek's life. We burnt some incense and put on music that Derek liked.
About 20 minutes later we decided it was time to go and boost his car so we can all go home... And what do you know?! It starts! We laughed and decided that Derek has had enough fun with us and decided to let his cousin go. So Jonas and I hop in his car and now it's our turn. I'm not kidding, Jonas' car would not start! Now we are getting a little nervous because it is seriously dark on this road. His cousin took this opportunity to say "See?! I told you! It's Derek! He's lonely!" During this I felt mixed emotions. Scared a little due to the darkness factor, but also kind of happy to be getting signs from him. As soon as cousin's car started, that was enough for me to believe it was Derek, but now that our's didn't, I was 100% sure. Jonas started to nervous giggle and say "oh my god, this is crazy!". I believed that our car was going to start in a few minutes, I believed Derek just wanted us there a bit longer. I started to pray to him in my head saying, "okay, we came and I know it's you but we are getting a bit freaked out. So please let the car work and I'll see you at home". I kid you not, literally after a couple of minutes the car worked and we all left.
Jonas and I was really happy we went there and still talk about it today when we get together.
