What is an unexplainable memory from your childhood?

Probably going to get buried but...My moms best friend, who my brother and I knew as our Aunt Kelly, passed away suddenly from a brain aneurysm. She was pregnant at the time and lost the baby as well. I was quite young, about 6 when it happened.

The summer of the year she died my family had bought a trailer and started camping. The part of the campground we were at was like a cul-de-sac, and my brother and I would go for walks around the road with our dog.

During one walk a lady approached us, I remember so distinctly this lady being our Aunt Kelly - she looked just like her. She walked with us, admired us, commented on our sweet our dog was. She was simply so loving towards us.

After we finished our loop she gave us a big hug and goodbye before disappearing into her campsite. I remember scoping out the site repeatedly in hopes of finding her to no avail. I told my mom we saw Aunt Kelly.

I asked my mom if she remembers this, and she vaguely recalls me mentioning as a child seeing Kelly. I truly believe it was in one way or another Kelly saying goodbye to us.
