This is a story my father told me while looking though old family photos a few weekends ago. It may or may not have relevance to this site, but I thought I would share.
A little background: My father comes from a family you can count on your two hands. My grandparents, My father, My aunt, My great-grandparents and finally My great uncle and aunt (Wally & Dorothy). In the 70's the eight of them would visit every Sunday, taking turns going to Elgin (where Wally and Dorothy lived) and Lisle where my grandparents lived. In 79' my great-grandfather passed, great-grandma in 82'. With the addition of my mother to the family, they still continued this Sunday visit.
One Sunday in 83', the six of them (mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, Wally, Dorothy) were eating dinner in Lisle. My aunt was a teenager and spending the night in Homewood, which is about an hour from Elgin and Lisle. The six of them went back to the house in Lisle. On the kitchen table on notebook paper was a note that read "We were here". No signature. The house appeared to be undisturbed. Doors, windows were fine. Lisle has a low crime rate (or did). It was odd; there was no sign of a break in. My aunt was called to see if she had stopped by. She said she had been in Homewood all night and had no reason to come home. Needless to say, everyone was a little uneasy and pie and coffee were skipped (you know they were freaked out when pie and coffee is skipped).
My Uncle Wally and Aunt Dorothy left for Elgin. When they got home, they phoned to say they made it safe. On their kitchen table was a note. Same piece of notebook paper, same handwriting "We were here". Once again, nothing appeared broken into and Elgin was quiet back then. My Uncle Wally passed away in 94'. Grandparents in 03' and finally Aunt Dorothy in 07'. They never figured out who left that note. I don't know if spirits can write or leave notes, but my father (and I guess myself) like to think it was my great-grandparents.
Thank you for all feedback and comments. Have a good day!
