It started with my friend's daughter. She got very sick on Christmas morning of 1998. One of her lungs had collapsed. They rushed her to a hospital in Lexington Ky. They found out she had a large tumor behind her heart. They diagnosed sarcoma bone cancer. This little girl was a twin, she was only 8 when she first got sick. She passed away in June of 2000.
Her family moved out of the house she grew up in. We moved into their house in the month of July in 2004. I had 6 girls and 1 boy who is the youngest.
Strange things started to happen not long after they had left. I was in the master bedroom sweeping the carpet. I heard a screen door slam shut. I had both screen doors open. So I went to see who was there. Both doors were still propped open. No one was in the house with me. It was at this moment that I knew that Kaci was there with me and she would visit many times in the next 4 years.
One night, it was around 3a.m., I heard my son crying. His bed was about a foot away from my side of the bed. Right after I heard him cry, I felt someone sit on my side of the bed and the covers tightened on me. I thought it was my son. So I turned over and turned on a lamp and my son was sound asleep.
One night I was watching my friend's 4 kids and it was about 2 in the morning. I had my hands full with the kids and the baby. When I turned the door knob all of a sudden the door jerked out of my hand. I thought at first it was my husband but when the door opened all the way there was no one there. He was still asleep in bed. I said,"thank you, Kaci".
