Being raised by my grandparents since childhood, we would normally visit my grandpa's mother and step father every other weekend as they were getting old and they wanted my brother and I to keep in touch in case they pass away.
Keep in mind my brother and I were their favorites even though we are not biological grandchildren. They always bought us gifts for our birthdays, holidays or even checks of 5 dollars for the heck of it.
Back in the summer of 2011 my great grandmother passed away. My grandma told me she tried to wait for us because high school was almost over. Unfortunately she didn't make it. We were all devastated. I couldn't even make it to her funeral.
Besides all that we still visited our great grandpa. He was still in good spirits even though she was gone, very positive, talked about the old days and showed off little new things he got for the house. Even gave me little gifts he'd find around the house as his wife was a hoarder of dolls and old toys. She had the entire house filled with porcelain dolls and plates for show in boxes covered with red blankets for many years. I always wondered what they were growing up. I would lift the blanket and see nothing but boxes. When she passed they wanted to get rid of everything! It was a long process took several months.
Then they eventually sold the home and my great grandpa moved to Tennessee with relatives. Well when I returned home to Florida that same year after she passed. She was not scared to make her presence known. I was always dreaming about her. She would always be looking for something in my dreams and she would ask me to help her find whatever she was looking for, never told me what it was. She would always touch my shoulder when I'm down from work or sad from something. She likes to pace back and fourth in my room or move things around like crazy on my dresser.
For instance I finally got home after a long night of work I turned off my light, my angel statue moved slid back a few inches. I just brushed it it off like, oh it's just grandma.
There was another time when my cousin and I were eating dinner and the front door locked by itself I didn't even know it was unlocked that was creepy. Even turning my closet light on and off. I was scared but I knew it was her making sure I knew she was there. She even went in my dream to tell me to break up with a negative boyfriend, eventually I did. Her presence didn't last too long only about a year. Sometimes I wonder if she still watching over me.
