Real Ghost Stories



Me & (as we called her) Nanny were very close. Always doing jigsaws together & picking berries. So when she passed, I was crushed, but I was old enough to understand. Those first five months were the hardest for us. But my story starts the Easter the following year she passed.

I was waking up, not completely conscious, when the image of two floating heads appeared above me. The faces were made up of the fuzzy stuff when your TV loses the signal. I could make out the first face, it was my Nanny, the second was of a man I couldn't figure out. Then I suddenly remembered the face from a picture. It was my grandfather, which I have never met, as he had died in a motorcycle accident when my mother was eleven.

My Nanny started talking, her voice was just as I last remembered. I can only remember her saying "I love you & we will meet again." Then they both turned there heads to face the window & disappeared.

I was about five then. After that, I went downstairs & told my mom that I'd seen Nanny. She held me close & only said "Ohh, hun." Then started crying.

Can someone please tell me if that was her or just a dream. There is also some significance to Easter. See Easter was her favorite holiday, because that was when this bush she loved started blooming. & I'm not sure if this is of significance, but the window they looked to is where the sun shines perfectly when is raises. & after they disappeared, it got a tad bright. Please tell me if you think she visited me that night, I would like answers.

Why, of course it was your Nanny! She knew you would recognize her and she also knew it would be the perfect time to show up, knowing you would remember as well. Thank you for sharing your sweet, loving experience with us. These are my favorite kind to read.

I have no doubt that you had a wonderful vist form your grandparents. You are lucky to remember it so clearly as you were so young when it happened.

It actually does sound like she visited you. Seems like too many coincidences for it to be a coincidence. It's very sweet that your grandfather came as well. A very beautiful account.
