Experience description:  

I was sitting on a bench facing the check in area for hospital patients and looked up and saw a woman dressed in a 3/4 camel vest with black knit top and camel slacks and she looked exactly like my best friend's mother who had recently died.  The vision was of her in a much healthier state.  The vision came toward me and the turned to the right, walked past my other friend, out the electric doors and then vanished into thin air.  Both of us immediately asked each other if we had actually seen our friend's mother and the answer was yes.  Neither one of us has been able to stop thinking about this.
