As I had previously promised, this is another of my strange experiences. I was about 13 years old at the time. Earlier on that morning, an elderly gentlemen, Jack, who lived in the house situated behind ours, had passed on as a result of a long illness. He was a kindly old man and the children around were always visiting him. That evening, my brother and I had rented a video. We also telephoned and invited our friend Owen, who often came over. The arrangement was to begin watching the movie at eight. It was already 20 minutes past 8'o clock, and Owen had still not arrived. Almost an hour later, he came strolling in through our back door, apologizing for being late. Owen explained that he had taken the short route to get to us, by jumping the fence in Old man Jacks yard.
As the old man was sitting outside on a little wooden chair beneath the tree, he had to stop and chat for a while. The old man told him that he would be leaving very soon, and that we would no longer see him. He also asked Owen to convey his best wishes to all the kids in the neighborhood, who visited him. Thereafter it was general talk. Poor Owen had no idea, that the he had just had a conversation with the spirit of a man who had died earlier that day.
That night after hearing the truth, our dear friend refused to go home, and spent the night at our place. He visited us often, but never at night again. The burial was held a few days later, and there has never been any more appearances from Old man Jack.
