Two years ago, I lost my friend Dan, to cancer. I was there when he took his last breath. On July 11th, I saw him in an HEB grocery store in Texas. Standing in the produce section, I raised my head to see him staring at me. He wore a bright orange University of Texas t-shirt, and a white straw cowboy hat with a nape of curly hair at the neck. He wore a pair of khaki shorts and brown lace up shoes... All clothes that he would wear in life and ones I had seen him wear.
When he looked at me, it was as if he looked through me or past me. It seemed our eyes never really made contact. He spoke no words to me and I never felt as though he were trying to communicate with me. He looked exactly as he did in the years before his death (which was slow)...very tired, moving slowly and looking older than his 50 something years.
My granddaughter was shopping in the aisle along the wall and Dan turned to look at her...twice. I never took my eyes off him and as he walked away from the section we were in and began to move his basket toward the aisles in the middle of the store, he turned to look at me once again and then turned and walked away. I was in a state of shock and continued shopping, never dreaming of following him. I never saw him again in the store, although I did not seek him out. A Tarot card reader said Dan came back to be my Spirit Guide. I don't know if I saw a man who looks exactly, to the absolute image of Dan, or if I saw Dan. I don't even know if this is possible. The question at the end of this story is a simple one; does anyone know if the dead can or will come back in perfect human form?
