Experience description:  

My first experience was in the garden of the house we were living in (Chicago area). It was early afternoon and Craig appeared to me about 40 feet away. I was alone and fully aware. He said nothing but appeared to be ashamed. He refused to look at me. He was dressed in a blue long sleeve dress shirt with the sleeves rolled up, as he always did, and beige pants. His hands were in his pockets. He stood still while looking down. He was clearly there and just that quick he was gone. I never second guessed myself of what I saw that day.
