My grandparents from my father's side died a year before I was born and those from my mother's side died about 4 years ago. My father's dad was a soldier and even though I never knew him, I always had an interest in his life as I have a huge interest in military stuff.
I used to ask dad loads of questions about him and to a certain extent I becoming obsessed. Time passed and I got older and this curiosity failed by time. A year after my mum's parents, who died only 6 months apart died I was talking to a friend of mine and the subject was about the military. Suddenly he started asking me stuff about my grand dad and I thought that he was asking me about the one who was a soldier.
At a certain point he seemed to be starring and crying but he kept asking me questions such as, did he smoke, how tall was he? Did he have this or that? What did he used to wear? Funnily enough my answer didn't match his. He than told me that he was seeing a dark man with piercing blue eyes smiling at him and there was a lady with him and they were both telling him to tell me that they are fine and they were smiling.
After I evaluated the description of the two people in front of him, I realized that he was talking about my mother's parents. The ones that had just passed away. I was very close to my grand ma. Two days later my friend and I met again and I took a photograph of both my grandparents and he pointed out that who he was were the ones I suspected.
I was stunned by this revelation as this guy never believed in spirits and moreover he didn't even know any of my family, even more my grandparents. This is the best gift I could have got from my grandparents. A signal through my friend that they were fine. But I still can't understand why they chose this person to be their communicator, their bridge.
