Grandma Comes To Say Goobye

 

It's been a long time since I last experienced any paranormal activity, which I think is a good thing for me. My wife has experienced more paranormal things then I have, which I got to see during the years of our marriage. This leads me to my story because this is my wife's experience and not mine.

My grandmother and I were very close. When my mother died of cancer, we were even closer. When I decided to go to college, I chose a school close to her (she lived 160km from my home). It was great, she was special. My best friend you could say. Over the years it was hard to keep in touch but I would twice a year make a surprise visit with my wife and children. She always laughed about this because the day before my visits she wondered if I would be coming soon. She once surprised me because I came over once and she already had a bed and dinner for us and she just said she had that feeling I was coming.

There is one thing I hate the most and that is time. Time ticks by and you just can't do everything. And sadly I couldn't spend as much time with her as I would have wished. I was at work when I got a phone from my father that my grandmother passed away. I was devastated. I didn't show it because I had to comfort my wife and other people who just could not accept it. I remember that I could only cry when nobody was around or if everybody was asleep. It was hard. I never had the chance to say goodbye.

To days after she passed away I fell asleep with my children. It was late and my wife was doing the dishes. As she was doing her dishes she heard someone walking up the stairs. She knew it was grandma. She recognized the way she walked. She heard the wood squeaking and you could tell those were exactly her steps. My wife in the corner of her eye saw a red aura. She said the aura was her height but never saw any human shapes or forms. She looked at the aura, it floated by her slowed down beside her and entered the room I was sleeping with my children. My wife knew that I couldn't say goodbye to my grandma. So she came to me and my children and said goodbye. My wife never was scared she had the warm feeling my grandma had. Grandma wanted to say goodbye and she did. And I'm happy about that.

Oh thanks Fergie 😁 My English is REALY bad and I didn't get it. Lol Now I do:) I'm glad you enjoyed my story. Till this day I keep thinking about her and it is hard, now one said it would be easy but its good to know that Grandma and mom are looking down at me. I hope I can make the proud. Sometimes when I look at a calendar I wish I could flick those pages back when they were with me. Sadly those pages are flicked the other way WAY TOO fast.

ChrisB, about the onions. They make you 'cry', but Swimsinfire was crying about your story; she thought that it was lovely. 😉

I think it is a lovely story too. I am just sad that you missed the event.

Thank you for sharing your lovely narrative.

I'm so sorry for your losses. I lost both grandparents in the 90's and both parents '05 my father and '08 my mother. I have stories on here about my grandfather saying goodbye, and one about my mother saving my life when I was in the hospital with pneumonia shortly after she died. So I know how you feel about loss and saying goodbye to a loved one.

This is a lovely story and i'm so sorry for your loss. This experience is a very special one and one i'm sure you will not forget. Do not be afraid to tell the rest of your family about this night, as I am sure the will appreciate how special a moment that would be but also take comfort from her final visit.

That's a beautiful story. When my grandmother passed, her she would turn on lights and you'd be able to smell her perfume. This lasted a while and then she moved on.

I'm glad that you were able to know that your grandmother came to say goodbye.
