Do you have a real ghost story?
Given the season and the popularity of ghost hunter/buster shows, it occurred to me that lots of us might have a ghostly experience to share.
I have a little one, a true story:
My paternal grandfather passed away when I was 5 years old, and my parents took me to his wake. They sat me in the back of the room on a folding chair beside my 5 year old cousin, Rosemary.
We were dressed in our Sunday best, with our duster coats and our little Easter purses and shoes. We really didn't comprehend what was going on and, with our parents busy in the front of the room, we were left to our amusement. I remember giggling with her and our trying on each others shoes when I felt a heavy hand descend on my right shoulder and I clearly heard our grandfather's stern voice. He spoke one word. It was:
Rosemary heard it, too.
