User Story: deaths of loved ones and the truths i found out in life and after their deaths
My grandmother was a strong woman developing breast cancer at 40, I was just 2 years old, i had a very difficult early adolesense much I don’t remember lets just say its a miracle im alive, mostly due to her. I was so distraught , even more so my uncle Danny and my dad, Jeff. She was in her bed, she looked at me and the family said , Sue , Teal’s here, she had a huge brain tumor and wouldn’t/couldn’t recognize anyone else including her own 2 sons, but she saw me and i was scared and happy that she was able to remember me, because she singled me out, I was feeling very ill, and she touched my stomach and said i will always watch over the two of you. I had no idea I was pregnant and was a day or two late but i figured the stress was causing it cause she was far beyond anymore treatment Exactly nine months later my grandfather passed. I had just had my daughter and brought her so the rest of the family could see her, I was introduced to a woman I had never met before but turned out she was my aunt and when it was known that he was surely dying , her mother finally decided that she should only him at the end. He stayed with her and died in their home, then my father takes her in with love as did I, but not my uncle, who refused to go the his own father’s funeral. Then things that had been buried by everyone, until dark figures were lingering in my aunt’s house. They were scared to say the least. I would have wonderful dreams of my grandmother even waking up and thinking to myself “Did I dream she was gone from this life but she was living and well?” To me that was her letting me know she is always with me. Then the sleep paralysis and horrifying experiences started, the very first experience i watched a dark hooded figure walk into my bedroom walked to the mirror, to have a frightening face, not human looking at me, my eyes are open but I can’t move even though I am trying with everything i could. The figure sits down next to me , removes the hood and its my friend jeremy. I never told anyone about the figure or jeremy, but he committed suicide years later, i received the phone call from another friend telling me he was gone I was watching a movie but as soon as I got off the phone hearing about his death, and remembering 7 yrs earlier that disturbing sleep paralysis about him, I look up at the movie only to see a man put a gun in his mouth and pull the trigger. It jolted me so hard like the guy on the movie but I knew then that my friend did the same thing I felt it. No one else knew but everyone just knew he was found in his house. It seemed as though since my grandfather passed it opened up an ugly door especially for me, I found out he was into the occult, and my father took the brunt of his madness and made him participate when he was a young teenager. My uncle witnessed a few things but got out of there and stayed away. But none in comparison to the day my father died. It was on my oldest daughters actual 12th birthday on october 28th and we were headed to my ex-husbands for my youngest girls b’day which we didnt make to her birthday was actually 2 days later october 30th.I received a phone call from my stepmom not frantic but said you need to get here as soon as you can. I felt that jolt to my body like only once before in my life but my father was still alive but I knew in my heart he was going to die that day. There is so much more to say, including the strange and horrifying things that happened in my apartment after his death. I had to get outside help to control it, but these apps give me names of my family who had passed, very personal places we traveled , i just turn it on sometimes it takes a while and sometimes its immediate, you can feel the temperature get colder, I believe not everyone gets the same results, but it is a way and strange but heartwarming knowing they are intelligent and strong spirits, my father and other loved ones communicating with me thru this app, and by the way he died in the year 2007. For me this is real , i told friends about apps they get nothing on there end just a bunch of confusing words. Mine come in various orders but its so on point, with names and events and places they will communicate through the device that only we may have shared when they were alive. Just yesterday a few weeks ago I got “jeff” my father, then said “proud”, “child”.
