Visit From Sister


Submitted By:


Hi! I'm a weirdness magnet and have a few ghost stories to tell. One of my sisters died recently. On the night she died I dreamed about her. I dreamed she was ill and going back and forth from being in a lot of pain to feeling distant. I tried to get her to go to the hospital but she wouldn't or couldn't. Something beautiful came and told her she could go with "her", and every time she touched her, peace came until she decided to go with "her". Not long after she died. I thought I heard someone yelling, (it sounded like her but I ignored that) on our porch, "Is anyone home?", which was odd because our porch door is always locked unless we are expecting someone. I went downstairs and opened the door and said come in, but no one was there. Then I heard heavy steps walking around our apartment.

A few years ago I was coming home from the grocery store with my arms full of groceries, and the cat underfoot. I was trying to find my keys, when the cat jumped back and cried like someone had stepped on him, and the locked door opened. No one was in the house. This happened two more times as well as hearing footsteps in the house when I was alone one month.

Five years ago when I lived in Carterville, my husband and I were getting ready for bed and we heard this tapping sound which proceded to follow me around the trailer. This happened periodically for several months.
