Uncle Mike

Location: N/A

By: Rebecca Cory in Brandon, FL

In 2004, my Mom went to CA to visit her bother (my Godfather) who was dying of cancer. Us Kids had to spend two and half weeks with our Dad so our Mom could make the trip (yes, my parents are divorced). I was 12 at the time. The day uncle Mike died, my dad had taken us to Chuck-e-Cheese (the one here in Brandon,FL). When I was in the tunnels and slides, I suddenly started to think of Uncle Mike and I could feel someone right next to me (I couldn't see the person). All of a sudden I heard a Male voice in my right ear say: "he is Dead". When I came out of the slide my sister told me that Mom just called and said that Uncle Mike just passed away. I think the person I heard was my guardian angel.
