    Boy buys camera at yard sale, finds photo of uncle, 23 yrs after he died in car crash

    Wichita boy’s garage-sale buy holds a treasure for his family (Wichita Eagle)
    Addison Logan, 13, probably wouldn’t have gone to the garage sale Thursday if he hadn’t broken his arm in a dirt bike accident a couple of weeks ago.

    He probably would have been riding the bike.

    Instead, Addison, who likes garage sales, was driving around to some of them with his grandmother, Lois Logan, in west Wichita. After three stops, he finally found something he wanted to buy. It was an old Polaroid camera at a house about a mile away from his grandmother’s house. He thought the camera was “pretty cool,” he said. He bought it for $1

    When Addison removed the cartridge and opened it he saw an old photograph inside which he took over to his grandmother.

    Lois identified one of the people in it as her son, Scott, who was killed in a car accident 23 years ago.

    She guessed that the photo, of him and his high school girlfriend Susan, had been taken about 10 years before his death.
    ---
    Addison’s father told the paper: ‘I’m just shocked. The more time that passes, the more in disbelief I am.

    ‘So many things have to come together for that to happen. It just seems supernatural.

    'It’s almost like he’s reaching out to us, saying he’s still with us.’

    Reminds me of one of my favorite quotes:

    "There's one thing that gives radiance to everything and that's the idea of something just around the corner!"

    And say what you like --- THAT is really something!

    Terrific Memorial Day Weekend story - glad MailOnline found it; I regularly look at my "home state" Wichita Eagle, but I missed the original story entirely.

    Very cool story!
    Maybe Uncle Scott is warning Addison to be careful...Scott and his brother both died as results of accidents...Addison had just broken his arm in an accident...
