Experience description:  


While visiting the site of the Oklahoma City bombing in route to Ft. worth Texas I began taking pictures. There were hundreds of people there. I did not have a chance to view the pictures until I got back home to my computer. That's when I nearly fell of my chair. I had a picture of my son Bret. At the memorial site--standing across the reflection pool looking right at me. He was the only one in the picture. Hundreds of people were there. Baseball cap pulled down, same slope of the shoulder, same build, blue jeans, white T, Black tennies and Bret's stance. It was Bret. What a gift this picture is.
