My Grandfather had passed away on the 16 of December in 2007, he died of cancer, and to answer your question yes he was a smoker. That summer after he passed, I decided I should stay with my grandmother considering she had no one to sleep with, I slept in the guest room all summer, the first night, nothing bad had happened to me, but the second day at my grandmothers, she had gone to Jo Anns fabric. I was in my grandfathers den, it was his favorite place to be, and also it was where the computer was. I was sitting at the computer desk, no one else in the house, dead silent, until I heard a crash. I looked up and my game boy and all of my games were in the hall. My grandmother's dog was with her, and the cat was on a hunt somewhere outside. I felt a cold chill go up my spine, I tried asking who was there, I heard a whisper and I ran into my room opened the closet to make sure no unsuspected pranksters were fooling with my mind, I saw no one, so I went back to my computer, I heard a whisper in my left ear, I could feel their breath, I looked to my side- no one was there
My grandmother got home, by which time I had cleaned up my games, and it is time for bed. So I crawled into bed and thought about what had happened to me, then I heard a SMASH! My grandmother and I looked at each other; we both walked into the den, and saw her sewing machine had fallen. I was getting nervous now, I volunteered to clean up the mess for my grandmother, and she went to bed, all of a sudden the lamp clicked on, my grandmother was in bed, and this is a touch to turn on lamp, so something had to have physically touched it for it to turn on.
I still have no idea who or what is haunting my grandmother's house to this day, none of us have been threatened or have been harmed, just scared half to death. I do believe it could be one of the past owners who have passed away and just don't want to accept the fact that their house isn't theirs anymore, or my grandfather trying to get our attention, if you can access the internet grampie you have my attention now, and I want to help you go into the light
