Seeing Dead Brother and Mother - by Crystil Smith

When my brother Randy died in 73, who tragically drowned in Lake Mead, I have seen full aparisions of him in our house. I was only 9 when he died, he was a 6 foot slim guy who used to eat alot. He used to be seen standing by the refrigerator. My mother and I had seen him by the frig holding the door of the refrigerator open and staring at us. Never said anything to us, we were frozen til he disappeared. He use to hold my chair back til the front legs were off the floor, then mom would say to him put my chair down. In the middle the night he used to have the TV on very loud and wake us up. I was so scared I yelled up the vents to mom and dad that the TV was on. I used to look out a crack in my door and see down the hall where the TV room was and see the glow of the TV on and noise. When mom and dad came down stairs I followed, and we all saw Randy in a chair just staring at us. Mom said don't be afraid, she told Randy it's time for bed. The TV would not come on again after she said that.

Thirty years later my mom caught pnuemomia and broke her shoulder and she died in Pueblo hospital. Following her death I have experienced her voice calling me, she would say, "Cris, where are you?" I answered but it was like she was in the room but could not see her but I could hear her voice. I so wanted to see her. Shortly after I divorced, I left Colorado to Arizona, my child was 6 yrs old. It was night time, driving the U-Haul, I had the panasonic phone up front, going through AZ the phone goes off, it's ringing, My daughter says "mom answer it." So I picked it up and said hello, you could hear static and moms voice saying, "Cris, where are you?" I was telling her I'm right here, I love YOU, then the phone goes dead. The phone had no battery in it.
