Real Ghost Stories

Friendly Visit


When I was younger, elementary school age, I lost a friend in a car accident that I witnessed. It was very hard on me and to this days has caused unresolved emotional issues. Now for the paranormal part of this story. Right after his funeral, that I was unable to attend, I started feeling his presence with me. Now I didn't see him or anything, I just felt him. After about a month that presence went away and I didn't feel him again.

Flash forward to the anniversary of his death. I woke up and could see the outline of a child standing at the foot of my bed. Now being a young child, you would think that this would have scared me, yet I felt nothing but peace and calm. It's almost as if he was just checking on me to make sure I was alright. That is the last time I ever saw him but every year on the anniversary of his death he let's me know he's around in some way. Sometimes I just feel his presence, other times on that day something will disappear and then reappear in a different location. I think he's just letting me know he's ok.

This past year though, something different happened. My 3yo daughter was in her room laughing and it sounded like she was talking to someone. When I asked her who she was talking to, she told me "B" and when I asked what "B" looked like, she described him to a T! She told me that he said to tell me that he's ok and he loves me. I immediately started crying and felt an immense amount of relief. It felt almost as if this was his final goodbye.

I'm curious to see if it truly was his final goodbye or if he'll show up again this year. Only time will tell though.

Are you living in your childhood home? If not then this little boys spirit is probably still with you or rather looking over you. It's a beautiful story.

A true childhood friend!
I absolutley love these types of experiences.
When a friend or family member comes back to check on you, or just to help calm the hurt that so often comes up with an anniversary as such.

For him to beable to give your daughter that message, and to also give her a smile in the process love it!

Lets hope he comes back, and continues to for years just to give you the feel of his friendship:)

Thanks for sharing
