We received the following report of apparitions from the Gaspe area of Quebec in 2010, however the events being described happened more than a decade ago.


"I was 4 years old and I remember it as if it were just yesterday. I was living with my parents in a townhouse and even at that age Ii felt the creeps while there. I was in my room one day alone when I saw my grandmother sitting on the bed. I sat in front of her on a little chair and talked with her. She touched my hand, and to me everything seemed normal.

My father arrived from work for dinner and my sister was watching me so my father asked her where I was and she told him shes talking to someone or herself in her room. My father opened my door and asked me who I was talking to and I told him "Granny" he said" it cant be granny because shes been dead now for 6 months"  I didn't know that. He got freaked out and brought me downstairs, and I never saw her again. Since that happened I've had several experiences I could never explain happen to me.

Once again I was very young around the same age as my other experience... My mother had left me alone outside while she had business in a big building and next to it was a very creepy abandoned house. There was a trail leading beside the house which led to the townhouse we lived in. I decided to go around the house and go home and my mother came out and found me and we went home together, but when I looked back at the creepy house I saw a figure of a person all lit up in white a flashing white and it was peeking behind the tree. I told my mother and she told me it was my imagination. Later when I was older it was about 6 pm when I looked outside behind the house and saw that very same thing, a human form lit up in white flashing zoom right past my house.  Once again I told my Mom about it, but she didn't react.

Years went on and I never saw it  again until I was 13 and I was listening to music in my room and doing home work and it was dark out . I always leave the blinds open and there again I saw it walk past my window. I didn't know what to do so i told myself it was my imagination. I am now an adult and I saw this very same figure where I live now passing by my back door and disappearing into nowhere.... 4 times in my life I have seen this..I would like to know what it is and why I saw it so many times."
