My Paranormal Experience, Uncle John
Posted 13 August 2016 - 01:40 PM
My mother was a waitress for many years at a hole in the wall dive in Chicago, called Bob’s Egg Palace. This place was located on Cermack Road just off of Levitt. One of her coworkers was a man named John. John would babysit me and my brothers when mom was working. John would take us to the zoo, and circuses when in town. John was a good man who loved us as if we were his own.
One day, when I was about 15 or 16 years old, I was waiting for a bus on 24th and Western Ave, when I saw John walking across the street. Western Ave. is a busy thoroughfare in Chicago that runs from North to South through the city. As stated, I noticed John walking down Western and I shouted over the traffic: “Hey Uncle John, how’s it going?” He looked at me, smiled, and saluted me with two fingers. He then turned the corner. I had not seen him for a number of years, but he was wearing the same light brown coat, and cap that I remember him wearing all the time. Thinking no more of it I got on the bus and went home. Once there, I was excited to tell my mom that I saw Uncle John.
“Mom, mom. Guess who I saw on Western.” I said excitedly.
“Uncle John, form the Egg Palace.”
“About a half an hour ago.” I said standing at the kitchen island in our house.
“Ummm, no you didn’t.” She said turning around to look at me.
“Sure I did, he was walking toward…” I started, but my mom cut me off;
“John died 10 years ago in his sleep.”
I assure you, dear reader, that he was as solid as I am now. Maybe he was just checking up on me? I don’t know, but I like to think that he was.

Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

I also looked it up here:
The word 'doppelgänger' is often used in a more general sense to describe any person who physically or behaviorally resembles another person.
