Spirit Of My Deceased Grandfather?


I have a little brother who is currently 5, he was 1 when this story occurred. My grandfather died a year before my brother was born.

My little brother Lane was 1, just learning to talk so that's what makes this story so interesting. I was ten and very open to the paranormal, so I was pretty shooken up. I was playing in my small room with my brother when the unplugged radio comes on. I jump up and run out the room with my little brother. We soon return to the room, I turn off the radio and my little brother starts to giggle.

I look down and he's kicking his feet, I ask him "What's going on Lane?" he looks up and says "Papa is tickling me". I suddenly feel really cold and I ask him "Papa?" he nods and points to the closet, "Papa is in there". I pick up my brother and go into the living room where the rest of my family is crowded around the T.v. I put Lane down and explain the occurrence to my mom. My mom says the story makes sense since younger children are more open to spirits. Then everyone freezes even Lane, we all get a whiff of my grandfathers cologne that was in my mom's closet. My whole family wasn't near her room which startled us all. Lane suddenly cheers "Papa came back!," we all huddle in front of the T.v, very startled and still smelling the cologne.

The story is still unexplained and we moved out of the house years after. My mom doesn't get any more signs so she thinks Papa has moved on, and maybe all he needed to be was heard.

Thanks again for reading guys!

Thank you for sharing your experience here. I was very touched by it. And of course I believe it was your Grandfather visiting you that day. That happens every now and then. But the fact that the entire family got to experience his visit together just makes it all the more special.

Nice to know your grandfather loves you! He truly does, or else he wouldn't of stopped by to say hello. He wanted to meet your little brother, just like my grandpas wanted to meet me. They both died in 1998, due to cancer, and never met me, since I was born that year, around two months after they died. Our loved ones have trouble letting go to.

How awesome! Ahh, your grandpa wanted to meet the newest member of the family. I love to read about loved ones coming back for a visit, such a nice break from the terrifying encounters people have.
