    We'd love to know where dear old Leslie Byrd went, where he was buried. We think his sister knew, but never would tell us.
    Mom and a brother went to their graves still wondering.
    We now have contact with his family and some of them saw him after he "disappeared" from here.

    There seems to be some hope here to fill in the gaps about your dad. It must be awful not to know what happened....{{{{{hugs}}}}}

    Haven't seen one so don't know if they exist or not.

    hey those guys on the fishing boat thought they seen a ghost, someone walking on the water, so anything is possible, like the big foot, or other stuff......

    here is something else , as someone mentioned, smoke, my husband smoked a pipe, a specialty brand he liked, had cherry in it, when he passed away 14 years ago it was tramatic so sudden and all. months later I could smell that smoke!He was watching over me. Haven't smelled it in a very long time. so there you go!

    heres another one, I was watching a paranormal show, and curious as I was I spoke out, to my mom, mom,If I am not to watch this, make the tv mess up. and it did! so we realy don't know, oh yeah could be coincedences and all, angels could go on with that, so there are unexplained things happening we really don't know about!

    So many thing sunexplainable.

    the little green men? UFO? who is to say?

    Most definitely!! My sister and I shared a bedroom. She was 9 at the time and I was 12. My uncle Gilbert (Boogoo) was in the hospital waiting to have his leg amputated from complications of diabetes. In the middle of the night, we both woke up at the same time and there on the ceiling was our uncle Boogoo's face. He didn't say anything; we just saw his face. We both jumped out of bed and ran to mom and dad's bedroom and told them what we saw. They saw the same thing.
    I have had other experiences with dead relatives; the time the phone rang in the middle of the night and my ex and I both jumped out of bed to get it and I said "your dad is dead!!!" He died at 55 yrs old of a heart attack at work. He wanted a grandchild so bad. Three years later our son was born and grandpa watched over him; covering him up at night when he would kick the covers off. Happened more than once.

    I believe that we are not alone. I was sitting on a bed in a house where my son had never lived in who died at age 16 1/2) and I felt that someone had sat down on the other side of me. There was no oter person in the room. My niece also seemed to see him go into a room and it really scared her. I feel his presence he's been gone 24 yrs! He was a ringer for Ralph Macchio when he played Karate Kid. When Raph was on Dancing with the Stars. It was like looking at him as an adult.

    I believe there is a spirit world and I think it something we should leave alone.

    I know there are angels that watch over us and take care and there are evil spirits(demons)
    I also believe we can be deceived by Satan who poses as the Light.
    Yep, something better to be left alone.

    No. But, angels and demons yes. Careful how you approach this issue.

    According to the Bible, people do not become ghosts. They either go to heaven or hell. However, there are demons (fallen angels) directed by satan who mimick the dead and trick people into believing lies. Many people open themselves right up to these demons because they want to believe someone they love is comunicating with them.

    Thanks. I get what you mean. I have never seen a ghost but have had the feeling that something was there. I do believe in God & believe that there are evil & demons in the world. My DD swears that a friend of hers that got killed in high school kept coming to visit her & it was always when she was so down & things were bad. After she found my DSIL & they were married he stopped coming around. I guess he knew she was OK> It was like he watched over her. One day she went to cementary & sat & talked to him & told him she was OK & that he needed to go home (heaven). He hasn't been back. I know some may think this is bull but she truly believed it was him. She cared deeply about this boy. They had been friends since they were babies.

    Years ago I was consumed with grief, when I lost someone very close. I remember crying in the middle of night and praying that God would help ease the pain. Suddenly I felt a warm embrace and was hugged - as real as real could be. I had an immediate sense of peace that helped me through the rough days that followed. I believe in a spiritual world and like to think someone cared enough to give me physical sign of their love. A guardian angle? Perhaps. I like to think so.

    I've never encountered a spirit...but was always fascinated by stories that my relatives would tell. I'm really enjoying this thread!

    I have heard that some people do not cross over because they feel they have something left to do. Maybe ghost is not the best word, maybe spirit/angel sounds better. I know the spirits/angels that have been or are in my children's, grandchildren's, and my life are looking out for us.

    In a dream my DD had about an acquaintance that was a member of her church, he came to her in a dream and told her to tell his family that God forgives. He had committed suicide.

    I know there is evil in this world, look at the terrorists. But I know also the spirits we have talked about are good and are here to look after us.

    According to the Bible, spirits and angels do visit us.

    I believe in angels and demons, as in the Bible, not per Hollywood. Same with ghosts/spirits.

    I believe in angels and spirits.

    How amazing, almost the same thing happened to me. After my mum got older and could no longer stand the strain of preparing a large Thanksgiving dinner, I took over the job. For many years after, I would call my my mum on Thanksgiving morning saying, "OK, mum, now how many stalks of celery do I need?" The first year after mum passed, my eldest daughter decided she wanted to have the Thanksgiving dinner. I was badly missing my mother on Thanksgiving morning, and the next thing I knew, the phone rang and my DD was saying, "Mommy, how much celery do I need?" Normally, my DD is very independent and hates to ask for help and loves to use new recipes, so I think it was my mum that prodded her to call.

    I know what you are talking about. Yes I do believe in ghosts or angels or spirits... I smell my grandma alot and I have noticed it when I'm quilting or knitting or doing something she loved to do. i think she's watching over my shoulder and smiling :)
