Strange dream and feeling before discovering the death of my ex-wife..

One morning I woke up with a strange feeling about an ex-wife that I had not seen or talked to in over 25 years. I had also heard almost nothing of her from friends, except that she had remarried. We had a short and not too loving of a marriage..... I had a short dream about her one night, that I discussed with my wife when I awoke. I dreamed that I had seen her in public. She looked young, slim, fit and healthy in my dream (even though her chronological age should have been almost 60), and she was smiling at me.

My friend's son in Thailand

I talked to a friend of mine in Maryland and told her that I was going to Thailand on a trip. I told her that I owned a condo there and would be staying for several weeks. She said "Oh, that's great! My son is in Thailand now.

a strange coincidence about a cat........

This story actually encompasses two coincidences. After I met my wife, we began to discuss family stories and I showed her some photos from my college days, including one of me in my cap and gown standing in front of the townhouse that I lived in while in school. My wife immediately recognized the townhouse development. She said "that's English Village in Memphis.

eerie coincidence in meeting my wife.......

One day over 25 years ago at lunch meeting while speaking with my office manager, she asked me what sort of woman I pictured when I thought about what my "perfect wife" would look like. I was single at the time and hadn't dated for a long time after a disastrous previous marriage. I described a very specific person with blue eyes, and a light, freckly complexion and long strawberry blonde hair. Also, a beautiful smile.

family coincidence discovered after meeting my wife

When I met my wife (that's another story all together about how that happened!), we fell for one another immediately. It was like lightning bolts had struck us both. I couldn't wait to get to know her and asked her out immediately. We went to dinner the day we met and started talking about family. I was living in Maryland at the time (that is where we met) and she was working for a company in Arkansas.

A little background about the necklace In 2010 while i was in 5th grade they were a fad lots of my peers wore them, they were suppose to give you energy or something weird like that but really it just caught on because everyone was wearing them especially atheletes. I always wanted one never got one though. anyway this morning (2019) I woke up and started havinf a vivid memory about all of this even picturing a the dark blue choker like cord with writing on it and circles on the ends.

Sons Meeting

I’m a designer. I was sitting with a couple designing their kitchen. Had two meetings over two weeks to finalise things. Towards the end of our final meeting I asked if they had children that lived nearby, & we discovered our sons had been in jazz band together in high school in New Jersey. Then we found out they both live in the same area in Boston. We said we would text our sons that night to see if they remembered each other.
