I have always had a strong connection towards spirits and strongly believe they come to me on purpose. I've had many experiences with ghosts but none like this.
My dad died 11th December 03 and a few weeks before he died we saw an elderly man wearing 1920's style clothing walking down the middle of the road, we turned around and he had vanished. This is nothing spectacular on its own; however, last night while I was on my way home I stopped at traffic lights and there, walking down the middle of the road, was that very same man wearing similar 1920s style clothing but this time he had an unlit cigarette in his hand! He was beckoning to me as if I should follow him but I was so scared I just sat and watched. He walked along the middle of the road for only a few seconds and then he vanished once again.
My family think I'm going crazy, maybe I am going crazy! Should I be scared of this man? Should I follow him next time he shows himself to me? Is there a way to tell if he is a good spirit or an evil one? I don't want to follow him in case he is evil. How do I know if there's something he is trying to tell me?
I don't feel like I can talk to my family about this because they don't believe. They seem to think I make this stuff up and I just keep telling them that one day these things will happen in front of them and then they will believe me! When I was younger, about 12/13 years old, a woman in a long nightdress used to visit me at night and watch over me. My sister saw her once but won't talk about it because it scared her so much!
