When I was a senior in high school my Grandpa passed away I was 17 fixing to turn 18. My birthday is December 26 and he passed away on December 4 2004.
The night he died I was sitting in my aunts nail shop and I had this weird feeling that something bad had happened, then the phone rang and it was the hospital where my grandpa had been in and he had just passed away.
Ever since I was a little girl I had always been able to sense spirits around me some were good and somewhere bad but I knew that I was going to be okay.
The next day I had went to school and I was relaxed not what you would expect from a teenager who had just lost a grandparent. My grandparents raised me from day one so I was more like a daughter then I was a granddaughter. I looked up into the sky and I started to cry and I heard a voice say Heather I am okay I am not sick anymore, I feel like a new person, I miss you and I love you everything is going to be okay I will always be with you! I started to cry even more and my two friends walked up to me, we were still waiting on the bus to get there and they both asked me why I was laughing and crying at the same time and I looked at them and said oh you don't know do you my grandpa passed away last night but everything is going to be okay he is with me.
Years later when I got married in 2008 my grandpa showed up in our house and my husband asked me who the man in my hallway was and I asked him to describe him and he did. My grandfather was tall and he wore overalls all the time that's all my grandma could get him to wear. I know that my grandpa is with me and my grandmother and my family and I know that he will always protect us. Rest in peace grandpa
