Experience description:  

My sister Dorothy and I both went to Home Depot because she's an artist and she needed to buy some tile. Well it was right when the sun had gone down, but it was still bright, any way this sounds really crazy, but when we came out the doors I was talking to my sister, and she was right behind me and she said something like ssshhhh! be quiet! and at that moment we both heard from the other side of the parking lot call out DORSE, DORSE, la la la (he was saying something but we could not understand what) I'm not kidding we both saw our brother Calvin. I thought I was going to faint. and he was walking towards us calling out for my sister over and over and she said something like OH MY GOD IS THAT CALVIN BUT HE WAS IN THE COFFIN and I told her WHO IS THAT? CALVIN? IT CANT BE IT HAS TO BE THE DEVIL and my sister looked like she was going to faint too and then to top it off she started walking towards him and I grabbed her and said NO DON'T GO. and she said OK and we were both in total disbelief and when he was pretty close in front of us, I grabbed my sisters hand and I started yelling to her LETS GO HURRY LETS GO. I still don't know what to make of this, but only my family calls her DORSE no one else does and this person was an exact copy of my brother Calvin. As a family we all were very close to him and we all loved and still do so much, but I have to admit that through out all of our lives together, him and my sister were so close, they were always together, they both would do anything one for the other they were never apart. I don't think any day went by when they didn't talk or see each other. So I still don't understand what happened to us, and we both went to ask if we could view the surveillance cameras but on at least three occasions they said no. They think were crazy because it is a crazy story, but it really did happen. Eventually we left and he walked towards the middle row of the parking lot, and he just disappeared. We drove thru the parking lot, but there was no one there except some customers.

Was this experience difficult to express in words?            Uncertain


Me and my sister were confused, because nothing like this has ever happened to any of us. We thought to each other what would people think of this/us????

He was the most kindest and wonderful person we have ever known.

Did you observe or hear anything regarding people or events during your experience that could be verified later?          Yes regarding people-there were customers in the parking lot when all this happened and there were a man and I figure his wife right next to my brother, and they heard everything and they were just looking at him, because he kept yelling out for my sister.

about two weeks after this happened, me, my sister, my mom and step dad and my husband were all in our living room and my sister was talking about what happened at Home Depot, and I had a picture of Calvin on a side stand and right next to my sister Dorothy, his picture flew of the stand and landed in the center of the room. we were in awe. we all witnessed it.

Have you shared this experience formally or informally with any other researcher or web site?   No

 Is there anything else you would like to add regarding your experience?       I would just like to know what it was he was telling my sister, because we couldn't understand, he wasn't close enough to understand what he was saying, and was it really our brother, or like my sister and I have said could that be Satan pretending to be him? I wish we could see the cameras footage but they already have told us no, several times.
