My Little Brother Plays with Our Great Grandfather


My name is Caitlin, and my Great Grandfather passed away in January and some things have been happening since he passed. My baby brother who is 2, only knows my Grandfather as Momo, that was one of his first words. And since he's only 2, he doesn't understand that "Momo" passed away. And so about a month after he passed, my brother would get up early every morning before everyone else, and he would play in his room, but one morning, he was playing and talking so loud he woke me and my step mom up.

And since I was already awake I told her she could go back to bed and I'd stay up with him. So it was me and my little brother awake, and he asked me "Hey sissy, you want to play with me and Momo!" I was speechless at this point and since I was still kind of tired I asked him again "Halen, who are you playing with?" And he said "I Play with Momo, he play cars with me..." I said, "Halen, is Momo here right now?" And he said "Yeap!" So by this point, I wasn't scared but actually kind of excited and puzzled at the same time.

I grew up in a very religious family, I am Christian, and I've ALWAYS believed in Angels, Spirits and Ghosts. So I wasn't scared. I woke my dad up, because it is my dad's grandfather, but since my dad never knew his father, that's who he considers his dad. And he said that this wasn't the first time Halen's talked to "Momo" and that he knew Halen could see him.

The next incident happened a week later and we were all cleaning the house and my brothers and sisters were playing in the play room, and all of a sudden I look over and my brother was standing at the door talking to himself, or someone else. So I said "Hey Halen, what are you doing?" And he said "Shh, wait" and than he turned back around to the door and says "Ok Momo, Goodbye I Love You!" and he ran back to me and says "I talk to momo Sissy!" By this point I was almost in tears, because I do miss my Momo so much, and just to have my brother be able to see him, is amazing.

Other little things have happened as well, nothing scary, I've taken them as signs that my Momo is there watching over us. But I am very curious, do you think it could be him? I hope it is, that way I know he's not really gone, he's there watching over us.

FYI: I Changed my brothers name in the story, Halen's not his real name. Thanks!

This story is so beautiful!
I have always heard that young children are more able to see 'the other side' because they have not yet realized what is real, and what isn't.
It will be amazing, when he is a little bit older, if you ask him if remembers seeing 'Momo'
Hope to read more stories from you soon
Take care!

This is absolutely amazing, I'm Muslim, but my grandfather is more a father figure to me than my father, and he is called Dada, or Mama Ji, and I'm afraid everyday of losing him. It breaks my heart.: (

What a touching story. Love has no bounds. Sometimes it's just the young people who are not jaded that can see it. He sounds like a wonderful man when here on earth and in the afterlife as well. I too am a Christian but unlike others that think all supernatural is of the devil I know different. They can come to visit and let us know they love us and are watching over us.

No it wasn't the last time he saw him, but these were the only times I'VE personally experienced this with my brother. I haven't really been around him much lately to notice if he was still seeing him or not. And yes, he was very close with everyone in out family. He did ANYTHING for ANYTONE, Well when he had the time to do it, which was a lot of the time. And a lot of my older cousins grew up knowing him as the only father figure in their lives, and what a great father figure he was. IS! Because he is ALWAYS in our hearts and we will ALWAYS remember the things he's thought us. Thanks for reading! Now that I know other people think strongly that it is him, I'm feel a lot better now! 😁
