This is being told by me, but it happened to my late brother Rudy Jr. Back in December 24th 2003 in Miami Gardens. My brother Rudy who was 40 years old at the time stayed overnight to spend Christmas with us the first time ever at this house. This was the house of my mother-in-law who became a widow back in July 1991. My husband, our two-year old toddler and I moved in with her back in May 1992. She no longer could manage on her own and begged us to leave our Miami Beach apartment and permanently live there with her.
Well, that night I heard some noise coming from the living room where my brother was sleeping, so I when to check up on him, and there was my brother all pale and wide-eyed telling me he just seen a ghost right there close to where I was standing.
You were dreaming I said. He said no way Tippy! I know what I saw! It was only the head and shoulders floating right there looking at me, staring at me, I was lying down on the sofa in the dark and something made me open my eyes and there it was hovering, it was a man just looking at me. I blinked and he was gone. Then you came over.
The next morning after hanging out most of the night with my brother, we finally realized the visitor was my dead father-in-law. It had been his birthday on the 24th of December and he probably was surprised by a stranger in the house. He had a chair that had been removed after he past that was his favorite right in the spot where my brother saw the ghost. He had never visited us ever until after that night. I think he was just curious. It was just a visit from the dead.
