I believe I've been blessed by seeing my "Guardian Angel" twice. Back in the late l980's, I was going through a difficult time as a struggling actor and sales clerk. An yellow Chevy Nova was my only transportation and the car proved to be a real problem. It was always breaking down in the most inconvenient places. One day, when I was leaving a shopping center, I got into my car and, as usual, it didn't start. I got out of the car and opened the hood to look inside. Suddenly, a kindly elderly gentleman with a white beard was standing next to my car and asked me if he could be of some help. He quickly took out his jumper cables and helped me start my car again. I got behind the wheel of the car to check something and then returned to the outside of the car to say "Thank You" to the old man. Not only had he vanished, but his car had quietly left (disappeared from) the parking lot without a sound. I was stunned and thought I was going crazy. Years later,!
I remember seeing this same man in a restaurant where some co-workers and I were moaning and complaining about our jobs. The man stepped up to our table and encouraged us to keep our chins up and to have courage. We all were filled with an amazing sense of peace when he walked away. I am sure he was my guardian angel and am proud to share this story with anyone who is wondering if these angels acutually exist. I believe they do! Sam Ramirez
