Actually, this story wasn't exactly my experience, but I thought I'd post it up and share it with people. This is my grandfather's experience and he told me all about it. When he was younger, he and my grandmother lived in Nava, Coahuila, Mexico, and he always loved to be around his father or my great-grandfather.
Then one day my great-grandfather died and my grandfather was heartbroken. It was extremely hard for him to have his hero and someone special to him dead, but one day, about six or seven years later, my grandpa was getting ready for bed, taking his pills when he layed down and was about to close his eyes, when he thought he saw something on the window that his bed was right next to. My grandpa opened his eyes alertly and was suprised to find his father's (or my great-grandpa's) face in the window looking at him and smiling as if he were still alive and healthy. Then my great-grandpa opened and closed him mouth as if trying to tell my grandpa something. That's when his face dissapeared and my grandpa saw it one more time another night, in the exact same spot, before never seeing it again. Sometimes my grandpa tells me that when they go to Mexico, he always sleeps in the same spot, and that he would look out the open window (to see if he could see his beloved father's face again) and just stare out and the happy memories of his father would come flooding back to him.
I was touched when my grandpa told me this story. One night when me and my family were staying in that house, I had to take the bed next to the window where my grandpa had seen great-grandpa's face, and I don't think I slept the whole night because I just kept staring out that window hoping to see something. Although I didn't see anything, I got this comforting feeling (and also a tat bit creepy) that someone was watching over me and that someone was next to me, making sure I was safe. Maybe it was my great-grandpa, maybe it was just me or something else. Well, I hope that I could get some opinions from people who will actually take time to read this.
