My body told me it was a ghost and that it had drained all the power from my bike at least 100 yards before I got to her. It was almost at a dead stop when I crossed her path. My mind always wondered if it was something else that tried to stop me and that she was real and living and needed help.

When I was thirteen I went to Kerens, Texas for the funeral of my great grandmother. When we were leaving the town we lived in to go to the funeral strange things started happening. The first thing to happen was an old trunk that was owned by my great grandmother that was given to my grandmother was tied down on top of the car. I watched it being tied down before we left, so I know it was tied down. I was in the car in back of my grandparent's with my uncle when we saw the trunk rise and stand straight up. They pulled over and laid it down. How it was done; that was beyond me.
There were even stranger things that happened once we made it to the house where my great grandmother lived and died. My great grandfather was sitting in his chair when we got there. He was still upset over her death, so he did not talk much to anyone. I was sitting on the floor in front of him when the phone rang, and he picked it up. I heard him tell whoever was on the line ''yes, they have all made it here,'' and then he said ''I miss and love you to. '' Then he ended the call and hung up. No one asked who he was talking to. Later the phone rang again, and he picked it up. He started over again with saying ''I love you. I will be there when everything is over. I told you. '' He then went on telling whoever it was that everyone had a place to sleep and eat. He was naming all his and her children that had come. He said everything was alright, and he hung up.
Well this time I went and told one of my older cousins about it, and they went to him and asked him who he was talking to on the phone. He replied that he was on the phone with great grand momma, that she was wanting to know if everyone had made it, that she kept telling him that she wanted him to come where she was, and that he told her he would be there after everything was over. My cousin tried to explain to him that great grand momma had died and that we were there for her funeral. He got really upset and shouted ''no, she is not. She has been calling me for three days now,'' so they left him alone.
Later that day the phone rang again, but my aunty picked it up. She said ''hello,'' and there was just a dial tone. The day of the funeral we went to the church. It was hot, and the church had no AC. The men tried to open a window, but it was stuck, so they had to get two people just to open it. As the funeral was under way, the very same window that was so hard to open slammed down very hard. It was so loud; it scared half the church. They jumped out of their seat and moved to the other side of the church.
