  1. I had a beloved dog pass away over 25 years ago. The first night without him, I woke up in the middle of the night and was lying awake just thinking about him. The room was pitch dark. I was lying on my side facing my husband and I began to hear my dog breathing next to the bed. I became very frightened because I knew he was there, but I was paralyzed with fear. I didn’t (and couldn’t) turn my head to see what was there. I then heard his paws shuffling backwards to move around to the front of the room, which he used to do because my side of the bed was too close to the armoire for him to turn around. It was such a vivid experience and my heart was pounding. I know I was not dreaming.


  2. I am not one who thinks I’m going to see a ghost. But I live not far from the Mansfield Reformatory where the Shawshank movie was filmed. I have friends who have toured it and swear there are ghosts.


  3. I don’t know that it’s a ghost story but after the death of our beloved cat, we would feel her presence. Both my husband and I would sense that she’s in the kitchen with us. We would look down because we thought there was movement. I still miss her.


  4. No ghost stories but sometimes I dream that my son – who has been gone 2 years – is still alive and talking to me about what ‘s going on currently. I’m using his walker and find it very comforting to have it with me in my assisted living room.


  5. I saw orbs in a lot of photos that I took at Moon River Brewing in Savannah. Kind of freaked me out!


  6. After my Dad passed away, I kept his car and every once in awhile the interior lights would flash on and off. There was nothing wrong with the car, I think it was my Dad telling me he was watching over me.


  7. Each night for the first few years after my mother died she would talk to me before I slept. She was giving me advice, and cheering me on in my life.


  8. The house I grew up in supposedly had a ghost. It was a large old home and the previous owner, Mr. B., had fallen down the cement steps from the garage to the basement – and laid there for two days before his wife found him! Needless to say, my older brother loved scaring me at night, pretending to be Mr. B.!


  9. We visited Waverly Hills Sanitarium in Louisville, KY, for a 3 hour tour. Then along with another couple we stayed overnight, and we were able to walk around the whole place by ourselves. Definitely felt touched and saw apparitions down hallways. Waverly Hills is a shell of a hospital that was used for TB patients. Pretty creepy.


  10. The Patience of a Dead Man by Michael Clark had a scary ghost. So much that I’m not sure I’m ready for the sequel!


  11. As a child, the apartment building where I lived, had a ghost. It was a male ghost. I saw him three different times. Once outside our bathroom window, once in the hallway and once in the mail room. Every time it was just a glimpse, but it was real. He was real. I’ve never seen one since.


  12. We stayed in a supposedly haunted hotel in Galena, Illinois. Haunted by civil war generals. During the night we heard strange noises plus our toothbrushes were both in the sink in the morning and the bar soap was standing on its end. Creeped us out!


  13. When a tour group I was with visited Edinburgh, Scotland. a number of years ago, the group all went on an evening ghost tour of the ancient town. We listened to stories as we went through ancient buildings. At the end of the tour, the guide’s light went out, plunging us into darkness in a dank underground building and we felt a faint stirring of the air as we stood there.
