Daddy's Home... To Stay? 2 by paranormal

After the initial experience with my father on the morning of his death, I expected that I would have other incidences. I should disclose that two of my brothers and me have never seen "eye to eye" and we have been at odds for some time and were only sociable for my father's sake. The farm home (...

Daddy's Home... To Stay? by paranormal

I come from a 4th generation farming family in central Alberta, Canada. My father's pride and joy was his farm. He always joked "The only way I am leaving this house is feet first!" Little did I know that that statement would not come true! In the last few months of his life, he had been hospital...

Tossing My Grandpa's Ashes by promghost07

I would have to say that this is my most favorite experience that I have had in my life. When I was eight years old, my grandpa had died from heart failure one day after we got home to California.

He Pulled My Toes! by kerrylee

My Grandpa, My Best Friend by Brownie09

My grandpa got Malaryia from being over seas in the war, and also lung cancer from working in the mine. Over the years, it finally progressed where he had to be put into the hospital. The last...

A Hug From Beyond by BYLUYSTER

Looking back I have to wonder if it was a dream or if it was real. Let's say it felt very real. I've been hugged by many people in my life, but not like that. It definitely had a sense of "forever" about it. And the fact it came from my dead father only made it more meaningful. Dad took sick in 1...

Fatherly Visits During Childbirth by jemz1984

This all happened whilst giving birth to my first child. When I was six months pregnant, my would-be father-in-law passed suddenly.

Our Unexpected Visitor In Florida by lilblackpom

I don't know if this will be of interest to anyone but I will try to make it short, not as long as the story I had previously written. Sorry about that. As you probably know by now from reading most of my stories, they are about ghost/spirit visits (not all of the time mind you, but here and there j...

Dad Really Did Say Goodbye by ladyannne

It's still quite difficult to read this today as I submit it, how many years later, yet a story so definite needs telling. It is my most personal story, as well. My father was a practical man. He dealt with life as it came, did the best with what came about, or worked very hard to change it to his ...

New House - Knocking - Family Member? by buksh

This might be nothing but I thought I'd see what other peoples opinions are. To start I'll mention my house was brand new when we moved in, no one has ever died in it or near it, and there has never been any other ghostly experiences apart from some active imagination as a child. Recently my sis...

When I was in 5th or 6th grade my mother let me stay home alone. I came home from school at about 4:00 and my mother had to work until 6:00.

All This Time It Was Him by JamesAlexander

Polly by ladyannne

This has to be one of my earliest ghost memories, yet, it was evidently not my first. It was 1958 and I was seven years old.

Night Tour by lilblackpom

My Grandparents Final Visit, After Their Own Funeral by niallacaldwell

This account was partially extruded from an entry written in my mother's diary in 1973 when my mother was 14 years of age.

In The Beginning by Grinder

This was originally going to be my second post, but I thought that maybe it would be best to share my very first (known) experience with the unknown before moving on with some of the additional stories I have to tell. Back in 1981 I was eighteen, do the math. It was the year my father died. It we...

The Disguise by lilblackpom

In Nan's Memory by laurenemmam

My nan died in July of 2007, and we were very close. She was the only one who would talk to me about ghosts and spirits as if they did exist.

She Never Left Me by nsoares423

Growing up, I had always been religious and there was no doubt in my mind about Heaven and Hell, demons and angels, and God and the Devil.
