Grandpa Comes To Visit

 

My maternal grandfather passed away in August of 1998 after suffering from Diabetes and Renal failure for a long time. He was always happy even on the day he died. He died in Mexico, on the day he died we had just come to see him because we had been told that he was very ill. He greeted us with a warm smile.

A couple hours after we arrived he passed away. We stayed in Mexico with my grandmother for a month until she decided to comeback to San Jose with us. Soon after we arrived we started to hear strange noises at night. My grandfather had had his right leg amputated due to diabetic neuropathy so he would wear a prosthesis and used a walker.

At night we would hear the sounds of a walker being dragged through the house. We all could hear it since our entire house had tile. It sounded like grandpa was walking all around the house. We also heard my grandpa play the flute and the guitar like he did when he was alive. The melody was always the same and it would always start off softly.

Also in our family room we had and old clock that didn't work anymore even when we changed the batteries, yet it would always go off at the same time, exactly 3:00am. We were never afraid whenever we would hear grandpa, we always felt calm and at peace. We like to think that its just grandpa's way of letting us know that he is ok.

Every year on his birthday which is July 16 we always play family videos of him singing and playing the guitar as he was a Mariachi in his younger days. Even well into his 60's he still enjoyed serenating my grandmother with their favorite songs from their youth.

This was a great story rosy722, sorry for the loss of your Grandfather he seemed like an amazing person. I think he just wants to let you know he is still there watching over you and your family. You may get a few comments from people telling you that 3:00am is the witching hour and demonic entities time of play, please don't put any thought into that at all. 😊

Thank you for sharing.

how nice he still vistis. My grandfather still visits my grandma. We started to realize it when she would say things like "We are going to take a walk." Well she lives by herself so "we" meant her and grandpa. My aunt tried to throw away one of his things one day and she was pelted with a suitcase that was sitting on top of a shelf in the garage. He also leaves the toilet seat up and we can hear him walking around. Fun stuff! I'm glad he still watches out for you guys that means he really loves you. ❤

Your welcome. He was a very happy and pleasant man, he had a lot of patience with us (grandchildren) he would always tells us stories about his childhood and would give us music lessons.

Your welcome. I tried to inclued all the info in my story but since its been a long time since these things happened I guess I left some stuff out. Especially since we experienced so many things. Our front door would open on its own even when it was locked, items that were properly secured would fly accross the room, and so many other things that we witnessed. All though some of those happenings we assuemed were produced by the other "spirit" in our home.

amazing and cheerful, thanks for sharing. It sounds as though your Grandfather was an amazing man in life and knows how much he is loved and missed in his passing and wants to let everyone know that he is o.k. This is great!

Thanks,
Champion

bacchaegrl, the author indicated that the sounds started after they arrived in Mexico at the house to stay with her grandmother. 😊

Rosy722, Thank you for sharing your experience with us. I am sorry for the loss of your grandfather, it sounds like he was a very happy and pleasant man. I believe that it was him playing his music just as he always enjoyed doing. 😊 ❤

We never heard or saw anything at my grandmother's house. I believe he chose to manifest at our house in San Jose since that is where he spent most of time when he was ill. He bought that house in the late 1970's. He had only been in Mexico for about 2 weeks when he passed.

Why would you hear the walker in a different house? Am I reading this wrong? Did the noises occur during that month you stayed with your grandmother? That would make more sense.
