Witness: [Name Withheld Upon Request]
Location: Hill Air Force Base, Utah
Date of Encounter: December 14, 1978
I was about five-years-old at the time. My family was stationed at Hill Air Force Base, Utah. It was very early morning and it was still pretty dark when I felt someone sit on my bed. I opened my eyes and saw my grandmother sitting at my feet gently rubbing my leg. My grandmother lived in Indiana at the time, but my young mind didn’t think about that. I was happy to see her. She didn’t talk or walk away. She just sat there and smiled. I felt so much love in that moment. I fell back asleep thinking my grandmother had come out to visit again and she was just checking on me. Some time later that morning my father received a phone call telling him his mother had just died. With all of the commotion of preparing to leave for the funeral, I never got the chance to tell my father that his mom had come to me to say goodbye. I have held that moment in my heart ever since.
The other strange thing is my second child, looks and acts like my grandmother and was born on December 14, 1999. My grandmother died December 14, 1978.
