My Story Begins in January 2005, with the death of my uncle Bob. I was about 15 at the time and his death upset me regardless of the fact I barely knew him. It was at the funeral I felt my first presence. A being was hovering above the casket, some one who was not my uncle, but some one I recognized. For the next few months as I was getting over my Uncles death the presence was in my house it felt like it was trying to comfort me.
Then on April 15th, 2005, the first disturbance happened. I was really down in the dumps when the radio which I never turned on and the volume was off, began playing the song "Don't Worry Be Happy". The radio played the song then, as suddenly as it started, it shut off.
All was quite a while after that until September 2007 when I was watching television at around 2:00am with the bright full moon and clear skies. At 2:00 exactly the television shut off (the remote on top of it).
I could smell a familiar musk, one I haven't been familiar with since 1995 and the smell of cigarettes (our house is a smoke- free house). The only person who smoked was my Grandfather who had been dead since 1995. I could tell he was telling me to go to bed so I said into the air "I'll go after this show Opa". After I said the smell cleared and the TV turned back on.
The next day I was vacuuming the upstairs landing when the smell returned. I looked out into the hall towards the picture of my Grandparents and I saw the outline of a man with a cigarette staring at the picture. I quickly shut the vacuum off and left him in his thoughts.
The next disturbance scared both me and my dog Senta. My dog and I were in the office on July 26th 2007. She was lying on the floor while I was on the computer. My family had gone for the day and the cats had been locked up as usual when my parents went out.
At around 12pm, the computer and TV suddenly shut off simultaneously. Senta sits up, ears in attack mode, starts growling at then I looked at the thermometer and it had dropped before my eyes 6 degrees lower than normal. I then heard work boots up in my parents' bedroom. Since no one was home and the dog was acting odd I grabbed a baseball bat and made my way to the stairs where the sound had made its way to. I got to the stairway and no one was there so I then turned around and left. The sound of footsteps moved up back into my parents' room, and disappeared. The temperature rose again, the TV and computer turned back on.
In November we had to put Senta down. When I came home from school that day my parents had taken her to the vet, so I went for a walk. I walked by my house at 4:30pm (the moment she died) and I looked in our bay window and saw her there a full body apparition looking at me. I looked at her, she barked and vanished.
Over the next few months (November - present time) I have felt and seen her in her usual spots in the office, upper landing, door way, and the hallway. Once I even heard her bark from the basement living room. I have grown used to her now. I believe she protects the house.
On another note, in the same time period (November - Present) I have seen a man walking up my side steps out of the corner of my eye, so has my friend Drew and my Mother. My father has seen Senta around as well.
