Is My Grandpa Still With Me?


In September 2008, my grandfather passed on from congestive heart failure. My family moved away from them before I was born, so to come to his funeral we had to drive over 100 miles. When we got to my grandma's house, I was sitting in the living room watching football with my uncle, and every now and then I would see my grandpa sitting in his favourite recliner out of the corner of my eye. However, every time I would face it, I couldn't see him any longer.

A few months later, I had a dream, and it was so realistic, it was that my grandpa's ghost had come to visit me and tell me not to be sad of his death anymore and that he loved me.

Last March, I was at a friend's house, with two of my friends, my boyfriend, and three of his friends. It was about 2 a.m. And we were all sitting on the couch when I looked out the window, and the window is a whole bunch of pieces of glass so it's hard to see clearly through it. I kept looking through it, and I could see a man's face, but not just anyone's... My grandfathers! I asked everyone if they could see the man in the window, and they said no, and that I was just tired, but I know I saw him.

I was just wondering what you all thought. Am I really seeing my grandfather, or it is my imagination running wild?

Well, you said you could see him out of the corner of your eye and I don't really think that we can see that well out of the corner... Eyes can play weird tricks and that may or may not the reason when you faced where you thought he was you couldn't see him and when you thought you saw him at your friends house it probably was your imagination you probably were tired there for gullible. And if it was your grandfather he might be just popping in so you don't miss him as much. If you thought any of this was mean I am sorry God Bless! ❤

it seems like the same story with my grandma, I never use to see her, and she didn't know the real me, and when she died I knew she was watching me and I was scared that she would think I was wierd. I was just being an idiot. I should of never thought that. Now I'm over it. And I know its ok. I miss my grandma but I also know that shes in a better place with my grandpa (deceased) and her twin sister (deceased) and everyone else. Its ok to be sad, everyone is when they have realivtives die. But it always gets better God bless! ❤

It really doesn't matter-if you feel you saw him and believe you saw him, if that brings you any comfort or happiness-then you saw him. If it is real to you in this instance, I believe it happened.

Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us,

God Bless!

I don't think it's your imagination running wild. He just never left. I have had a similar experience to this, and as far as I know I'm pretty sane:) haha.

Hi winter, sorry I'm a bit lost here with your story. You said that your family moved away from your grandparents before you were born? Did you have a granddaughter relationship with your grandfather at all? I hope you don't mind me asking. Trix ❤
