Have you just talked to a person, and then you hear that they are now dead?

This has happened to me before. There was this guy that was interested in talking to me at my cousin's party. My dad was trying his best to drive this boy away from me. He would not even let us get one inch closer together. Well, two weeks later, this same guy died. I heard that he got shot, someone killed him. And I went to view his body at the funeral home parlor. It was very scary. I mean, I just talked to him, then now he was all of a suddenly, dead. Another similar incident happened to me too again. Only this one was pertaining to my sister. There was this guy that came to see her. He said who his name was. And I told him that my sister was not at home. And about a couple of weeks later, I found out that he was killed too. Someone shot him also. Another guy that my sister dated, used to always come to my grandmother's house. And he was in a car accident. He was apparently running from the police and ended up crashing the car that he was driving. He is now dead. This same guy would come over see my sister. My sister was so mean to him one time. She threw all of the CD's that he gave her in the dirt road. That was so mean of her! I saw him about a year before that, and then I found out that he was dead. I was walking in town and he was walking with another guy. He spoke to me and then asked me about my sister. That was the last time that I saw him until I found out that he was dead. It is very scary when you can just be talking to someone and then the next thing you know they are dead. Life can be scary at times. Has this ever happened to you before?

Hi, scarlet_woman. That is how it can be. All of a sudden. We just never know, sometimes, when the last time that we may see someone alive. Life is very mysterious.

What a dangerous place you live in,no wonder your father is looking out for you.What can I say it seems you come across bad boys,although it is sad these things have to happen,we live in quite place so the worse thing that happens to my sixteen year old son is he misses the bus.I feel so sorry for you trying to make a life with all that going on,for goodness sake listen to your Dad,don't dismiss him he may well have saved your life several times.

Hi, suzzy3. It is dangerous anywhere that anyone can live at. I never dismiss my father. I am glad that he has been warning me about how young guys can be. I would rather to listen to him than to listen to others. Sometimes, living in a quiet place can be dangerous too. Take care.

Yes, it is suzzy. I have listened to my father for many years. Although, he has been quite annoying. His heart is always in the right place. I love him for that. I am glad that he is like a protector. It is so many people in this world that are crazy and that are just plain devious! I am glad that my father is there to guide me. I am doing just fine as of now. How about you?

You are right. This is so true. Thanks for sharing your personal stories there; it must have been really traumatizing, one way or another. Life is just so fragile. One day we are happy and know of so and so alive and kicking, and the next moment, they are no longer around. Life gives no warnings definitely. When fate has it that the person will pass away, she or he will in different circumstances and etc. That's why I always tell myself never to leave my love ones/family members like say going out and leaving a fight in the air just like that. There must be some form of closure and it's best to always treasure and cherish our love ones..

My son got married some twenty days back and there were a host of relatives who attended the party.I met one of my uncles [he is my mother's last brother] and greeted him.He looked very fine to me [he is 66 years old]but , in a matter of 10 days I got the message that he had had a heart attack and had passed away. In fact he had had his son's wedding fixed on the day of my son's wedding. This was quite shocking to me.
