The experience I am about to share is something that happened my mother and grandma. Now I can't say for sure if what happened was paranormal, but it was definitely a very creepy experience.
The story is based in Australia and happened about 25 years ago. My mother and grandmother are not really believers in the paranormal but when they tell this story they always seem a bit freaked out.
Anyway, before I was born my Aunty's ex-husband (I will call him Dan) fell terminally ill and was put into a hospice. Where I come from terminally ill people are sometimes sent to a hospice to spend their last days/weeks as the hospice is usually nicer than a hospital bed.
Every single time my grandma and mum would visit Dan they would notice a black crow sitting on the window sill of his room. They said the crow was there every single time they would visit.
When Dan passed away, his funeral ceremony was held in a church. This church had the main stage and coffin at the very front, and two large doors at the back along with a small table (this will be important in a minute). My grandma and mum decided to sit at the back of the church near the large doors and table. Only moments after the funeral ceremony began my mum and grandma were startled by a strange rustling sound behind them. When they turned around they saw a black crow hopping into the church through the back doors. They watched as the crow hopped onto the small table in the church. They said the crow faced the front of the church as though it was a guest at the funeral and watched the ceremony. The crow remained on the table until the end of the ceremony when it hopped back out of the church and flew off. They both swear it was the exact same crow that was always seen on Dan's windowsill.
So what do you guys think? Just a creepy coincidence or something else?
