When I was 17 my grandfather/hero died of a massive heart attack. Everyone in the family was devastated when they heard the news. When I turned 20 my cousin (Erica), was 18, had just found out she was 1 month pregnant. Her and her husband decided to keep the sex of the baby a surprise. She had a dream that our grandfather showed up and asked her what she was going to name her daughter.
When she was 4 months she had another dream that our grandfather had showed up in and again he asked what she was going to name her daughter. This time she told the family what she had dreamt about. My grandmother then said she had a dream that our grandfather had told her that she was about to be a great grandmother of a beautiful baby girl. At 8 months she and her husband still hadn't decided on a name. She had the same dream again but this time when he asked her for the name she said Nevaeh (heaven spelled backwards). She told us about this latest dream and her decision to name the baby Nevaeh.
The next month she went to sleep one night and our grandfather showed up about 3 hours into sleep and said two words ITS TIME. She woke up almost immediately and at 3 in the morning she gave birth to my beautiful cousin Nevaeh.
Not the typical story of a ghostly visitor but one in the same.
