My Father's Ghost


This actually happened to my daughter and her cousin. We were all at the funeral home. My dad had died of a brain aneurysm a couple of days earlier.

My daughter and her cousin were sitting out on the swing on the front porch of the funeral home. They were just sitting there talking when they looked over at the front porch steps. Sitting there was my dad, smoking a cigarette with his legs crossed, swinging his foot like he had always done. He looked over at them and smiled, and then disappeared.

They came inside where we were sitting, and told us what had happened. We were really surprised to hear what they had to say.

When everyone was standing at the gravesite, I looked over toward the trees, standing there was my dad holding my baby brother who had died at birth. I don't think anyone else saw him, even though my sisters and me have talked about it. They said they hadn't seen anything.

That same night my sister said she woke up; she was in a different room not her bedroom. She said it was totally dark except there was a bright light shining down on a casket. Every detail of the casket was visual. She said dad sat up in his casket and opened his eyes and said he was fine now.

Since that happened we are ok with him being gone, even though we love him and will miss him dearly. However this wasn't the last time we have seen his ghost.

More to come later...
