My grandfather passed away when my grandmother was bedridden after a stroke. They had never slept apart since after WW2 until grandpa fell ill. Following grandpa's admission to hospital within 24 hours grandma had a debilitating stroke. Grandpa and my mom had a great relationship as did my daughter and I with him. After his death, he would appear to play checkers or 'go fish' with my then seven year old daughter. My daughter was not making too much sense in those days, but she was adamant about grandpa coming to her room. One night about 02:30 hrs, I heard a male voice coming from my daughter's room at the opposite end of the house. That voice was familiar with rasping and sharp intake of grandpa's emphysema. Loaded with my pistol, I walked in to find my daughter seemingly talking to air but the rocking chair that was my grandpa's favorite when he was alive was moving slowly back and forth. Meanwhile, Cathy, our German Shepherd dog, was focused on that chair. Within seconds, my daughter turned to me and said ''grandpa has to go now. '' I said ''goodnight, grandpa. I miss you. '' The chair stopped rocking, and you could tell that his presence had gone. My daughter was not scared, so I told her that it was time to 'hit the rack'. I turned out the light and headed back to my room. It was a sleepless night, but I now had proof (to me) that he was watching over my little girl.
It gets better. My grandpa would appear to me on various occasions. His comment would be ''check on Milly (grandma). '' Then he would turn a shuffle off from my bedroom door and disappear within seconds. I would call the nursing home where she resided and ask the staff to check on grandma. Each time it was strange. One time, she had fallen out of bed on her way to the bathroom. One time she had been given an inadequate dose of insulin and was having a reaction. One time she had accidentally pulled her IV. And one more time when she was dying, and since I had called, she did not die alone. The charge nurse was with her after I called in her last three minutes. She had signed a DNR.
Once grandma had passed on, my grandfather focused his attentions on my mother and daughter. My mom developed lung cancer in 1997. While she was undergoing chemotherapy she was pretty much bedridden herself. Twice grandpa came to tell me to check up on her. Once my mom had stopped breathing, but I managed to revive her. The second time, grandpa let me know that mom needed me. I was thirty miles away walking into a restroom at a restaurant when he appeared at about 1:00 pm. I called my now thirteen year old daughter's school and had her sent home. She found my mom on the floor of her bathroom; she had broken her ankle.
