I'm sharing this story on behalf of my Dad. This experience occurred to him almost 20 years ago, but I was at home asleep at the time in my bedroom upstairs.
My Dad is originally from Europe and most of his family still reside over there. The way they lived many years ago is certainly a lot different to how we live now - The toilet was outside, they had to wash all their clothes by hand in the river etc. Of course, since then, many things have changed which is great for them!:)
It was a Saturday morning and Dad was downstairs in the laundry sorting out the washing. All of a sudden from the corner of the room he saw a white mist appear. It then turned into the apparition of his sister (who had died many years before). He told me by this point she appeared like a real human. In a soft voice she said to him, "Dear, look how lucky you are now to have a machine to do your washing, when I had to use my hands in the river..."
After that moment, she faded into a swirling mist into a corner of the ceiling and disappeared. Dad did not even have a chance to say anything to her. He just stood there completely shocked but certainly not scared.
After that moment, he tells me to this day he could not believe what he had seen and he felt very at peace with her presence there in front of him.
Needless to say, he says he made himself a VERY STRONG cup of coffee after that experience.
Has anybody had any experiences where a loved one who has passed has appeared to you in almost human form?
