A nursing home, especially one that's been there for a very long time, would seem to be the perfect place for ghosts. Your story reminded me of an X-Files episode where some of the elderly saw the bad ghost kind.
Yes exactly LOL! Plus sooooo many people have passed away there in those rooms so it makes you wonder. I have heard stories as well that there will be lights on and call lights on for a room that no one is in. It’s weird.

@Jan A You just reminded me of another one from my work. One time a co-worker was telling me that the fire alarm was going off for a room that no one was in, and when they went in there to check there was a burn in the sheet and the room smelled like faint smoke. I found that weird too:.

I think the truth, & I think Cathie would agree, is that people we deem "developmentally disabled" have other abilities or talents we don't understand.

The young man who won "America's Got Talent" last year is autistic, blind, mute, never had a music, piano or singing lesson & learned to communicate thru music.

Your friend of a friend's son sees angels & events that haven't happened yet. Are angels good ghosts? I don't know.
I do agree. Even though Joe drives me crazy at times (he says the same thing to me) some of the stuff that goes on around him is just hilarious 😂. He cheers people up just by being Joe. And he's a self taught cartoonist.

Not a ghost story but I find it interesting. In 2019 October 19th I lost my Dad to Cancer . While in his final days I would go visit him . He would hold full conversations with his brothers and sisters that passed long before him . The last time I went to visit he told me his mother was going to come pick him up at 5 am . It kinda freaked me out a little. He passed away just before 5 am the next morning . I still wonder if my grandmother came and picked him up . Had anyone else had something like that happen to them while a family member was sick ?

My mom thought she heard someone at the front door the night my dad died in a nursing home. She went to the front door & there he stood, wearing a suit, overcoat & a hat. She didn't open the door. I don't think she was at the nursing home when he died because she didn't drive a car.

I have to tell this story again here. While my mother was sick and dying of cancer she managed to buy me a Christmas present. She was so happy about it she told my coworkers that she had found something really pretty for me. Well Christmas came and it was a necklace with a dove and egg charm. The thing is I don't wear jewelry because it bugs me and she knew that. But it was pretty and from my mom so I appreciated it. Later in August the following year she passed. At her funeral there was a bird in the tree above her casket that would not shut up. It sang so loud I couldn't hear the preacher. I feel it was a special farewell for now to me.🤗

My cousin had a type of muscle Cancer so they had to take her leg so it put her in a wheel chair . For like two months before she passed she stayed with my mom in my backyard . I put a small two bedroom mobile home in my backyard for my mother and father . It was new nobody ever lived in it before my parents . My cousin would sit out on the porch and watch my dogs and turtles run around the yard .She was on a few medicines but nothing that would make her see stuff. She told me a small boy and a woman would walk around the backyard every evening. She described the same little boy and woman I've seen in my house . Without me saying anything about it to her. Right before she passed she would also talk to family members that were long gone . Just seems strange how she would know about the woman and little boy .
