My Story

Completed April 1999

One night I was home by myself, making some soup in the kitchen when I thought I heard a noise behind me. I turned around, and there was my Grandpa, who had passed away a year or so earlier, just standing there, smiling at me.

Weirdly, I wasn’t scared or upset. I just said “Hi Grandpa!” and sort of smiled back at him. He said, “Hi Sis” back. (He always called me Sis). We just sort of looked at each other for a moment, then I turned around to stir my soup, and when I turned back to look at him again, he was gone.

It was then that my brain finally registered that he had passed away and that there was no way he could have been standing in my kitchen, but I saw him, plain as day, heard him talk to me. My only thought was that he was checking in on me to be sure I was okay.
