Have you ever seen a ghost?

My grandmother used to run a foster home in Galveston, TX. You may remember that Galveston, in the early 1900's, was hit by a terrible hurrican that all but sank the island and it's residents. Thousands of people died in that horrible flood as the Gulf of Mexico swept onto much of the island, and for months after, those that were left had to gather dead bodies from beneath the rubble. Death and the smell of rotten flesh filled the air and the bodies were sent out to sea on a barge to be burned. Still the ocean winds would bring the foul odor back to the people of the island and they would know the deed was being done. My grandmother ran a foster home called the Lasker Home. I saw many ghosts while I stayed here overnight, and my grandmother had her favorites, that would sit with her as she would read. You could literally see an empty rocking chair moving steadily back and forth as you sat next to my grandmother on her bed while she read. I remember it clearly to this day. During the night, I would hear someone ascending the stairs, but they would never get to the top, where my room was. I would watch with fear, laying under my covers shivering with the anticipation of the sight of the ghost. Still, they never showed. Do you have any ghost stories to share. Today is the day. Happy Halloween!!!
