Laundry Visitor

 

I'm sharing this story on behalf of my Dad. This experience occurred to him almost 20 years ago, but I was at home asleep at the time in my bedroom upstairs.

My Dad is originally from Europe and most of his family still reside over there. The way they lived many years ago is certainly a lot different to how we live now - The toilet was outside, they had to wash all their clothes by hand in the river etc. Of course, since then, many things have changed which is great for them!:)

It was a Saturday morning and Dad was downstairs in the laundry sorting out the washing. All of a sudden from the corner of the room he saw a white mist appear. It then turned into the apparition of his sister (who had died many years before). He told me by this point she appeared like a real human. In a soft voice she said to him, "Dear, look how lucky you are now to have a machine to do your washing, when I had to use my hands in the river..."

After that moment, she faded into a swirling mist into a corner of the ceiling and disappeared. Dad did not even have a chance to say anything to her. He just stood there completely shocked but certainly not scared.

After that moment, he tells me to this day he could not believe what he had seen and he felt very at peace with her presence there in front of him.

Needless to say, he says he made himself a VERY STRONG cup of coffee after that experience.

Has anybody had any experiences where a loved one who has passed has appeared to you in almost human form?

Cat - you're welcome 😊 Eventually one of two things will happen. He will become bored and move on to another site or he will be banned from this site. Apparently admin is backed up or he'd have already been banned long before this conversation we are having now 😆 So until one of those two things happen, we will continue on.

Hello Swinsinfire,

Funny that you say that because I asked dad if she said anything else and that was it! Interesting considering she could of said anything else and she chose THAT! Thanks for reading! 😆

Cheers,

Cat ❤

I wonder if he was more shocked that she appeared, or that she would comment on something like laundry. Nice story.

Hello lady-glow,

Thank you so much for reading! Her death also was not recent at the time as she had passed away almost 10 years earlier!

I also agree - amazing how much we rely on machines/technology these days! 😆

Cheers,

Cat ❤

Hello valkricry,

Thanks for reading! Yes, I agree I think she wanted to remind him of how lucky he is too. We were discussing his experience the other day and he certainly said it was something he would never forget!

Cheers,

Cat ❤

Cat,
Sounds like his sister just wanted to remind him of how lucky he is. Maybe he was muttering about doing laundry?
I still do dishes and laundry by hand. Lol
If it's any solace, I have seen passed relatives appear very solidly. Not too often though. Perhaps 3 or 4 times (unless we count my twin - I saw him a lot!)
Thanks for sharing this 😊

Great story, Cat and so well written!
I understand your Dad having a cup of strong coffee after seen his departed sister!

You know, for some time in my life I used to do dishes by hand, now I wouldn't move to a house if it doesn't have a dishwasher in the kitchen, no way!
