First of all I want to say I have been reading stories on this site for a long time. I've always been interested in the paranormal. In fact most of my family have. The person I'm about to talk about was very much a believer. My dear old nan. Before her passing she always joked about haunting us, we believed her too. It's just the type of thing she would do for a laugh at our expense. She was a great woman and hilariously funny. The head of our family and very much respected.
Her passing came suddenly to us even though it probably shouldn't have if we looked at the facts. She had lung disease, still smoked 40 a day and was 82. But boy did she cling on. Family was everything to her and I truly believe she did not want to leave us. Anyway onto the point of this story.
It was December 2014 and my sister had taken my children to the Christmas light switch on in our town center. Our nan passed December 2013 so we were trying to make that month a little more cheery that year. My sister 3 months before gave birth to my beautiful niece who unfortunately passed away due to a condition called anencephaly, an abnormality of the skull. She lived for 1 precious hour. So here's my sister, my two children and her son enjoying the night, they ask a bystander to take a picture of them on her mobile phone and he so kindly obliged. She looks at the photo and thanks the man. Nothing obvious jumps out at her at that moment.
Fast forward 3 months later. My sister is at the hospital for results about her little baby girl who passed away. She is passing time and taking her mind off things by looking at pictures on her phone, she comes to the family picture of the Christmas light turn on. She seems to be drawn to this picture. Suddenly I receive a text message saying she has a picture of nan and neive (my niece) I reply about how impossible that is as nan died before neive was born. She then sends me the photo and tells me to zoom into the left hand corner. Low and behold here is a a silhouette of what seems to be my nan holding neive! I have attached the photo for you all to see and also a picture of my nan too so you can see how identical this is to her.
My nan just wanted one last family photo and for all the children to be in it together. I would love to hear your comments and thoughts on this.
(For reference the photo was taken on a Samsung S4)
