When living in Memphis, my husband traveled three out of four weeks a month thanks to the Navy. Our house was on the bigger side and was built around 1970. No more than a week after moving in, I noticed a shadow. This shadow was very clear, it was a man sometimes all white and sometimes all black. He had a top hat on and was maybe 5’8. When I think of him, I picture him with a beard, I have no idea why.
The first time I saw him, I never thought anything of it. It was after I saw him the third time, did I know we had someone else in the home with us. The interesting thing was I only saw him in the hallway leading to my kids’ rooms.
I never told my husband because he always talked about how when he was younger, he and his grandma saw a ghost in his closet, and it terrified him to the point to where no doors were allowed open (bathroom, closet, bedroom door) when we went to sleep.
One day while I was cooking, I noticed him in a darker shade, but I never said anything. My husband who was sitting at the counter suddenly goes “babe did you see that?” I look over at him and he is pale, like just saw a ghost pale. I smile at him, and he then starts to question my smile. I told him how I’ve seen this shadow multiple times but in different lights. The craziest part of this is without sharing any of the details that I saw, he described the shadow he saw and it matched mine COMPLETELY- all the way to the top hat.
We never investigated if there were any deaths near our property and decided that since we wouldn’t be there very long due to the military, we would just ignore him when we saw him.
He wasn’t the only spirit in our home though, almost every night at 9:04 pm there would be two rings that would enter my son’s room and float all the way to the top of the room out of site of the camera. We have a few recordings and believe that they were two loved ones that just liked exploring at night.
