I was sitting in a quiet living room reading a book when this young man walked into the room. He was transparent, but I saw him in color from head to toe. He vanished after 4-5 steps into the room. I said `hello` to him and there was no response from him. I have not seen him since. I believe he is a young man who died from an accidental gunshot wound while rabbit hunting with friends. This accident happened at least 30 years ago. Maybe 40-50 years ago.
