I have a long history of seeing a black apparition prior to someone's death, but I had never seen this figure prior to the death of someone close to me, until this instance.
Arriving to work one Friday morning, having just parked my car, I was busy gathering my belongings when I looked up and saw a dark apparition manifest directly in front of my vehicle. I could make out the gender and some facial details of this transparent being. Struck with fear, I could not look directly at it. I turned away not believing what I was seeing. I had never seen this figure at such a close distance. My heart raced as my mind searched for an explanation. When I got the nerve to look up, it was gone.
Knowing that I had previously seen this figure prior to someone's death, I tried to determine who it was that was about to die. My oldest brother Lou and his family were in town visiting, so I immediately jumped to the conclusion that it was he that would die.
On Saturday, I received a call from by my parents inviting me to have brunch with my brother's family prior to their departure the following day. Fearing that this would be my last opportunity to spend time with my oldest brother I agreed to join them.
On Sunday, I received a call from my best friend Dave, asking me to join him in testing his son's go-kart that he just received from the shop. He wanted to test it before allowing his son drive it. I explained to him that my brother was in town and that I had made some prior commitments. I promised that I would call him immediately afterward.
Upon arriving home after having brunch with my brother and his family, my wife explained that Dave had been in an accident and told me that Dave's wife wanted me to call as soon as I got home. My heart dropped and I feared the worst.
When I called Dave's wife, she explained that Dave had been in a horrible accident and feared that he would not survive. I raced to the hospital not believing what was happening. We waited at the hospital until late that night, only to hear that my best friend had passed away.
I wonder if I could have prevented Dave's accident if I would have guessed that he would be the one to pass away and not my brother?
