Real Ghost Stories



I like graveyards, during the day. At night, I won't go near them. One summer day, I was walking around the one down the street from where I live and I noticed a stone with pictures. I walked over and noticed one of the pictures had fallen down. I tried to stick it back in the ground but it was plastic and I heard a crack. I immediately dropped it saying aloud that I was sorry and meant no disrespect. I walked behind it to see who it belonged to. His name was Jeremy and he was 26 when he died. I got emotional and started to cry telling him he was taken too early. It was then I felt a cold spot on my right shoulder as if he was comforting me. I went home and could feel him following me. I turned around before exiting the cemetery, asking him to please not follow me that I was sure he was kind but I frighten easily. He didn't listen.

That night I woke for no reason around 3 am, nothing was on, and my children were all asleep. I couldn't help but feel someone watching me from my bedroom doorway. Scared, I plastered myself to my husband and squeezed my eyes shut. Whatever was watching me moved to my side of the bed and stood there. I felt something touch me at the base of my neck and it made me jump and sent a shiver down my spine. I know it was Jeremy, because I think once he realized just how afraid I was, there was nothing.

He resides now in my house, I see him without fail out of the corner of my eye in my living room when I am in my kitchen. I will often feel what I think is my husband behind me when I am at my computer but when I turn to address him, no one is there. Once I thought my husband was behind me in the kitchen and he whispered "sweetie" in my ear. Smiling, I turned, and he was sitting in the living room. Even my husband can feel what he calls "something" once in awhile.

I told a friend about Jeremy, who didn't believe me. He tried to provoke Jeremy yelling out that he didn't believe he was there and to come out. A few seconds later, across the room my infant's toy went on then off. We just put new batteries in it a few days earlier, and in order for it to turn on, you have to press the hand. My cats will often suddenly look at something above my head when I talk to them. I'm glad Jeremy followed me, except for the occasional spooks now and then, he is a kind presence.

I think you need to do EVP work so you can make sure it's him.I've seen many cases where people are tricked. This could be a poltergeist or a spirit that saw the chance to scare you. Help him if he's a spirit (you can tell if you ask the right questions in EVP) if it's not, tell me what it says by posting to me or E-mailing me.

I wonder why Jeremy decided to follow you home? Maybe because you accidentally cracked his picture? Hmmm Well, I am glad Jeremy is a friendly spirit... Thank you for sharing your story with YGS!

I agree with xXellimayXx, I'm glad he's nice but it seems like you should try to tell him that it's okay to pass on instead of being bound to you. I think he would be happier.

There's a graveyard just up the road from me and there's a young woman who died in 1991 aged twenty one. I actually knew her. One day I was at her grave side and laid a flower on her grave. When I turned my back, the flower was thrown at me. I'm serious. I found out through her brother that she hated those flowers when she was alive. Now I just say hello to her and DON'T lay flowers on her grave. 😐

You're like me. I can sense spirits too, and I speak out loud as well when addressing them. I'm glad you are comforted with his presence and that he isn't a dark or bad spirit to you! Take care. 😉

It is good that you meant no disrespect when you tried to stick the picture back on.
