Dad Is Still Here
Chris, MI, USA
I believe in ghosts but to my knowledge have never seen one until recently.
My father passed away suddenly in February 2000 from a lethal arythmia (it effect the lower part of the heart). According to the doctors he didn't suffer any pain and didn't know he was dying, it apparently took all of 3 minutes for him to pass away.
At first Mom and I didn't pay attention to what was going on, but then it want beyond reasonable explanation. One night my mom went to bed early she was in there for about 10 or 15 minutes when she came back downstairs. She told me that dad was upstairs; according to her she had laid down when she felt the bed shake slightly, then she felt someone lay down next to her she was ready to jump out of bed when she felt a hand on her thigh. Whenever my mom was upset my dad would do that to comfort her.
I have converted one of the bedrooms into a computer room and it was a habit of his to go to bed early and every night he would open the door and poke his head in the room and tell me goodnight and he loves me. Since his death he still comes into my room to tell me he loves me.
Twice I have heard the front door open and close; it usually happens around 6:00pm when my dad would come home from work. Also on my birthday I woke up at 5:00am and had the feeling to go downstairs. When I got there I noticed the fan on; this is Michigan in the middle of winter here there is no reason for the fan to be on. I figure it was my dad's way of saying Happy Birthday.
There is a message on the answering machine from my dad, a month after he passed. Actually he is kind of singing "I outta go". Ironically my mom had been singing just a little while before and in the song she sing "I outta go".
There are so many other things that have happened since he passed but I will end the story here.
