I was 18 when my grandfather passed away. My niece was down at my house conferring me. It was raining on and off when I decided to go for a walk around my town to calm down because my grandfather and me were so close. We turned to go down one road when I saw something in a yard walking. I nudged my niece and pointed to it. I could not move or say anything. She looked and said she could see the same thing. We both saw a man in a brown cloak kind of like the ones they wore back in horse and buggy time. But when we looked down we could not see his feet.
Later that same day I walked back down the same road to the same spot where I saw the apparition. I saw nothing this time and started wondering what it was I saw. However I do know that whatever or whoever it was I didn't feel safe. I haven't been down there since.
The next incident that happened was when my son was 2 years old.
I laid my son down to sleep. I went into the living room were my boyfriend was and we sat there playing a video game. Whilst playing I heard my son in the bedroom talking. I thought he was talking to the stuffed animals I had at the foot of his crib, so I didn't think anything of it. It was getting late and I was getting sleepy so I went into the bedroom to find my son standing in his crib looking at my bed and talking (at the time I was living with my brother who was in bed). So I walked over to him and laid him down and told him its bed time mommy has to get up and go to work. An hour later he was still talking so as I opened my door I saw a man sitting on my bed. He was wearing a black long coat, a cowboy hat and cowboy boats. I new who it was when I first seen him even though he as been dead since I was around my sons age. When I flipped on the light I don't no why I did, but he disappeared. My son went to sleep after.
I haven't told anyone about this until now so I was wondering if anyone could tell me why I saw him.
